While both sides have been the standout teams in London over the past year or so and boast enviable positions in the division, it’d be fair to say performances have stalled of late.
Indeed, Thomas Tuchel wasn’t happy with his team’s outing away at Watford on Wednesday, while David Moyes’ side are winless in three and have struggled since Angelo Ogbonna’s season was ended prematurely.
Still, a London derby is always an entertaining way to kick off the weekend and with both teams not having much in the way of fresh injury concerns, it’ll be interesting to see if either can play their way into some improved form.
Given what they’ve done of late, it’d be foolish to write either off.
