Chelsea – Arsenal headlines This Weekend’s Soccer on TV and Online

8 Shares

Through 12 matchweeks, Arsenal looks to be capable of holding down the top spot in the English Premier League. That has been a surprise to many.

Needless to say, all of England’s elite are looking to puncture Aresenal’s credibility and shake things up in a hury. Chelsea is feeling farther and farther removed from its 2021 UEFA Champions League glory but remains talented enough to pressure its rival into a firstleague loss since September 4.

The Blues head into the rivalry clash at a meager sixth place in the Premier League standings and were last seen taking a 4-1 drubbing to Brighton. There is a real need for a statement win and Sunday’s contest is one they must take advantage of.

A pair of headlining matchups in Italy will also create some drama, as Napoli squares off with Atalanta on Saturday and the Rome derby between Roma and Lazio takes place Sunday.

Napoli has paced the Serie A ranks so far this season and remains unbeaten through Week 12, but Atalanta, sitting in second place, presents a credible threat. Roma – Lazio is always a worthy watch, and things might be more tense than usual as the two are wrestling for a UEFA Champions League spot at the moment.

Of course, Saturday’s MLS Cup final between heavyweights Los Angeles FC and the Philadelphia Union is another must-watch. Stay tuned to SBI as we’ll be on-locating providing in-depth coverage of this weekend’s doings in LA.
