Undoubtedly, the tie of the round is the London derby which pits the current top two sides in the Premier League against each other in an intriguing encounter at the Emirates. The scheduling of the match does mean that both sides are likely to rest players that played at the weekend and the fixture will be a stern test of each squad’s depth of quality which you would think might favour Chelsea.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say, “It’s clear that Chelsea and Arsenal have both started the season well and a defeat in the Capital One Cup would be a major psychological blow to either club’s ambitions. Chelsea have taken a little longer to come into their stride this season and are now getting some big results with the dramatic win against Man City being massive in the Premier League title race. Arsenal have defied the critics and found something of a missing link in the team with Mesut Ozil, opening up a slight lead in the League as they approach their tenth match. The win at the weekend came despite playing with only ten men after Arteta’s 65th minute dismissal. Whilst we may not see both teams preferred eleven the encounter will be fascinating and unpredictable. We will of course be covering the match live with upto the second commentary on football.co.uk and across the many social networks and forums, match analysis, team news, features previews and reviews.”
Simon Boynton, Managing Director of DSG believes that Football.co.uk will be the perfect venue for Arsenal v Chelsea “We have a great platform for Arsenal and Chelsea Fans to watch and follow the Capital One Cup online in football.co.uk and would love people to get involved and discuss the games on our football forums.”
