Arsenal-Chelsea: at what time and on which channel to watch the Premier League clash?

A decisive derby for the Premier League title? This is the promise of the English football clash which will pit Arsenal against Chelsea this Tuesday evening (9 p.m.) at the Emirates Stadium in a late match of the 29th day.

Originally scheduled for Saturday March 16, the meeting was postponed due to the Blues’ participation in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. A postponement which places this London derby in the middle of a final sprint of the most exciting English championship and which Mikel Arteta’s men approach in the shoes of the leader.

In control against Wolverhampton on Saturday, the Gunners won 2-0 thanks to goals from Leandro Trossard and Martin Odegaard. A necessary victory to move forward, because Arsenal had lost ground by losing (0-2) on home soil against Aston Villa the previous weekend.

If William Saliba and his partners remain leaders of the Premier League, they can no longer afford the slightest gap, since they are only ahead of Liverpool on goal difference (74 points each, + 51 for Arsenal and + 43 for the Reds ) and are only one unit ahead of Manchester City, who have a game in hand.

Chelsea likes big guys

Suffice to say that a defeat seems forbidden for the Rouge et Blanc, who will then travel to Tottenham on April 28. To do this, it will be necessary to get rid of the clutches of a Chelsea team (9th with 47 points) which is having a difficult season and has just been eliminated by Manchester City in the semi-final of the FA Cup but which remains in the race for the ‘Europe.

Undefeated for eight games in the league, Mauricio Pochettino’s men have also made it a specialty of catching the big guys this season, like the first leg, which ended with a score of 2-2 on October 21. But the Blues could present themselves without their playing master Cole Palmer. Co-top scorer in the Premier League tied with Erling Haaland (20 goals), the young striker (21 years old), ill, did not train this Monday and could therefore be absent on the Emirates pitch.

The match between Arsenal and Chelsea will be followed from 9 p.m. this Tuesday April 23. It will be broadcast live on Canal + Foot.
