I was alerted by an article on Arsenal Mania about the game on Monday night and it got me thinking to say the least.

The article stated the following:
"This is really the best possible time to be taking on Carlo Ancelotti's side and you really get the feeling that if we take all three points then pundits will openly declare that Chelsea are starting to come apart.

Chelsea could very easily sneak an early goal and then sit back and try to defend it. The way they've been playing lately, you'd expect us to be able to break them down"
Now you have to read the full article as they are talking about odds at the bookies backing up what they are saying but at the same time they make some controversial points if you ask me.

First of all, is it really the best possible time to play Chelsea? We have been smarting after being poor for well over a month now but, We have JT and Lampard back and have also had an additional week on top of the previous week to prepare for this one. Added to that, Didier Drogba is back amongst the goals.

Chelsea have had to wait for two weeks now to put right the wrongs of the last few games so expect them to make a statement on Monday night. However, if we do lose would it really be Chelsea falling apart? I can't see it to be honest.

Secondly, it states that Chelsea could sneak an early goal and then sit back and try and defend it. Well you have to say when JT is back there and we have our tried and trusted three in midfield of Lampard, Essien and Mikel then Chelsea look solid. The problem Arsenal have is they lack a killer ball so when they play side to side all the time like against us or United the other week it's easier to defend against.

I have to say Arsenal are a massive threat of course and have plenty of options in their side. Added to that players who could turn a game by themselves and they cannot just be brushed aside. You have to work hard to beat Arsenal.

I do really think, and I am not being biased here, just taking everything into account with the fact that we have been rubbish and Arsenal can't keep a clean sheet, that I can't see how you can make anybody outright favourites for this one.

Do you agree?
