Chelsea vs Arsenal live analysis! – By Joe Prince-Wright at Stamford Bridge

The Arsenal fans and players are going wild together here.


GOALLL! Saka slams home a spot kick in stoppage time after Azpilicueta pulled him down. He deserved that. Chelsea 2-4 Arsenal is a full time score. Wow.

Arsenal should have wrapped this up. Tavares slams wide.

GOALLL! Eddie Nketiah puts Arsenal 3-2 up. Thiago Silva half clears but it goes straight back to the Arsenal striker and he slots home his 2nd of the game. The away fans go wild. I told you this game was boring…

Of course, I’m only kidding. Arsenal are seeing more of the ball but Chelsea look a threat with Werner and Lukaku playing on the shoulder of the last defender.

Not much has happened in the second half so far. What a boring game…

Thiago Silva on, Andreas Christensen off at half time. No surprise. Chelsea were all over the place at the back and Christensen had a bit of a nightmare.

HALF TIME: Chelsea 2-2 Arsenal – That was an incredible first 45 minutes. Arsenal were brilliant in attack but made some big mistakes defensively. Chelsea made some poor defensive errors too but Mason Mount and Timo Werner looked so sharp.

It should be 3-2 to Arsenal! Saka again runs inside and causes chaos. Odegaard sets up Smith Rowe but his curler is inches wide. Brilliant attacking play from the Gunners.

Arsenal’s plan is basically get the ball to Bukayo Saka as early as possible and then get into the box. He’s been sensational as he whips in another dangerous cross but nobody is on the end of it.

The game has finally settled down a little. But my word, this is intense. So many mistakes but both teams just going for it.

Chelsea fans already singing for Thiago Silva here at Stamford Bridge. Safe to say they aren’t happy with this defensive display. Christensen has been all over the place.

Moments after Chelsea equalize, Nketiah and Tavares both flash shots wide as Arsenal almost go 3-2 up. What is this game!?

GOALLLL! Cesar Azpilicueta makes it 2-2. This game is nuts. What a finish from the Chelsea skipper. Brilliant cross from Mason Mount to set him up.

WHAT A GOALLL! Arsenal 2-1 up. Xhaka did superbly to avert the danger at one end, then launched a lightning-quick Arsenal counter as Saka brilliantly set up Smith Rowe to sweep home. That was coming. Arsenal have looked so dangerous.

Bukayo Saka just absolutely bamboozled Marcos Alonso. Incredible run, skill and ball to pick out Nketiah… but he scuffs his shot wide. Moments late Saka crosses but Nketiah can’t flick home.

Wow. What a game.

GOALLLL! Timo Werner equalizes. His shot deflects off Granit Xhaka, who turned his back, and beats Aaron Ramsdale. If anybody deserves a slice of luck in the final third, it’s Werner. Moments later Mason Mount spanks a shot just over.

GOALLLL! Arsenal 1-0 up. Eddie Nketiah slots home after a terrible mistake from Andreas Christensen. Clinical finish. The away fans go wild. Huge moment for the Gunners. Christensen slaps his own head in disbelief.

WIDE! Romelu Lukaku, who has a rare start, sends an effort across goal which is not particularly close to the target. Perhaps he should have looked for Werner at the back post?

SAVE! Edouard Mendy makes a good stop with his feet after Xhaka did well to find Gabriel (yess the center back) in the box.

Good chance for Chelsea as Marcos Alonso has a shot deflected just wide. The Blues go close from a few corners after that.

KICK OFF: Lots of friendly banter between the two sets of fans early on.

“There’s nobody here, there’s nobody here, just like the old days, there’s nobody here!” sing the Arsenal fans to the Chelsea fans at Stamford Bridge, as there are close to 12,000 empty seats due to the current restrictions on Chelsea’s operating license.

Here are my thoughts ahead of kick off.

Quick reminder before kick off: I’ll be hosting a Twitter spaces Q&A from the press box here at Stamford Bridge after the game today. Join the chat and send me your questions on this game, and anything else you want to, by clicking below!

Very subdued atmosphere here tonight. Why? Well, there are only Chelsea season ticket holders allowed to attend due to the sanctions on outgoing owner Roman Abramovich from the UK government. No match tickets are allowed to be sold for Chelsea’s home games under their current license. That means around 25,000 Chelsea season ticket holders and a few thousand Arsenal fans.

Intriguing team news as Lukaku comes in for Chelsea, while Elneny starts in midfield for Arsenal and it looks like Ben White is in at right back.

The weather is absolutely perfect here in west London as two rivals collide in the spring sunshine. There will be nothing pleasant about this battle.

Chelsea team news, injuries, lineup

Mateo Kovacic is out after suffering an ankle injury in the FA Cup semifinal. He joins Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi on the sidelines, while Ross Barkley has been missing through illness. Christian Pulisic, Thiago Silva and Hakim Ziyech remain on the bench, while Romelu Lukaku starts up top with Malang Sarr and Ruben Loftus-Cheek coming in to the starting lineup.

Arsenal team news, injuries, lineup

Tierney, Partey, Tomiyasu and Lacazette all missed the defeat at Southampton and Arteta is really struggling to replace their experience in his lineup. Ben White starts at right back, while Eddie Nketiah continues up top but Lacazette is back on the bench. Elneny starts in midfield.

Chelsea vs Arsenal preview

Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea have had a mixed few weeks as they were knocked out of the Champions League at the quarterfinal stage but reached the FA Cup final at the weekend. Timo Werner and Mason Mount have been the main men in recent weeks, while Kai Havertz continues to lead the line superbly. Despite all of the uncertainty about the ownership situation, Chelsea sit comfortably in third place and have games in-hand over the chasing pack of teams behind them. They have struggled against Arsenal in recent seasons though. The Gunners won at Stamford Bridge last season and Chelsea have won just one of their last four PL home games against Arsenal. After defeats to Brentford and Real Madrid in their last two home games, Chelsea haven’t lost three on the trot at home since 1993.

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are desperate for a win to turn around their alarming slump in form which has seen the top four hopefuls lose three games in a row to Crystal Palace, Brighton and then Southampton at the weekend. Injuries to Kieran Tierney, Thomas Partey and Takehiro Tomiyasu have hit Arsenal hard and they lack a cutting edge in attack as they continue to create chances galore. All is not lost in their top four push but this is their game in-hand over Tottenham and Manchester United and they have to make it count. Arteta has seen his young side deliver statement wins against the big boys over the last few years and the stakes are extremely high for this encounter in west London.

England vs Ukraine: How to watch live, team news, updates


England host Ukraine in a UEFA EURO 2024 qualifier at Wembley with an extremely emotional atmosphere expected in London.

[ LIVE: EURO 2024 qualifying scores – England vs Ukraine ]

As the war rages on across Ukraine following the Russia invasion just over a year ago, the United Kingdom have been one of Ukraine’s key partners in the fight against Russian forces.

The English Football Association have given away close to 1,000 free tickets to Ukrainians who were forced to flee their country and resettle with families in the UK. Over 4,200 Ukraine fans will be in the away end at Wembley amid a sea of blue and yellow and you can expect plenty of mutual respect and support from fans of both countries towards each other. This match is Ukraine’s first of 2023, as they narrowly missed out on qualifying for the 2022 World Cup after losing to Wales in a playoff last summer.

England beat Italy 2-1 in Naples on Thursday as Harry Kane became their all-time leading goalscorer with his 54th goal for the Three Lions and they held on after going 2-0 up as Luke Shaw’s red card with 10 minutes to go complicated matters. Gareth Southgate’s young side are developing but will they be able to finally win a major tournament?

They have to qualify for the Euros in Germany next summer first, but a first win away in Italy since 1961 was a great start to this qualifying campaign.

Here’s everything you need for England vs Ukraine.

Key storylines, in-form players

The last time this nations met England ran out 4-0 winners in the quarterfinals of EURO 2020. They will be the heavy favorites in this game but Ukraine should not be underestimate as the No. 26 ranked team in the world have the likes of Oleksandr Zinchenko, Mykhailo Mudryk and Vitalii Mykolenko all playing in the Premier League.

England’s forwards ran riot in the first half against Italy with Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka sensational, plus Jude Bellingham’s driving runs from midfield give this Three Lions side an extra dimension. There is more creativity and cutting edge about this England side compared to recent years and it feels like they are ready to win something. There will be a ceremony before this game to honor Harry Kane becoming England’s all-time goalscorer as he passed Wayne Rooney with his goal in Italy on Thursday.

England team news, lineup options

Luke Shaw will be suspended for this game after his red card in Italy, so Kieran Trippier or Ben Chilwell will come in at left back. It is likely Jordan Henderson will come in for Kalvin Phillips in midfield, while Phil Foden could start over Jack Grealish out wide. Reece James and Conor Gallagher could also come into the team as Bellingham limped off towards the end of England’s win against Italy.

Ukraine team news, lineup options

Andriy Yarmolenko (three goals away from equalling Andriy Shevchenko as Ukraine’s all-time leading scorer) has been struggling with a hamstring injury so he may start on the bench, while Bournemouth’s Ilya Zabarnyi and Shakhtar’s Oleksandr Zubkov are both out. Yevhen Konoplyanka and Roman Yaremchuk offer real quality in attack, while Zinchenko is the heartbeat of this Ukraine side.

Three key questions for USMNT in March


The United States men’s national team returns to competitive action with an interim coach at the wheel and a spot in the CONCACAF Nations League finals still uncertain.

The Yanks clobbered Grenada at home in their first CNL group match but could only manage a 1-1 draw with El Salvador thanks in no small part to a sloppy pitch and a red card. The USMNT was also down several first-choice players including Christian Pulisic and Giovanni Reyna.

[ MORE: How to watch Premier League in USA ]

The U.S. will be favored to advance and will hope to be in the catbird seat following Friday’s match with Grenada at Kirani James Athletic Stadium in St. George’s.

Grenada lost 3-1 to El Salvador away but drew Los Cuscatlecos at home and need to beat the visiting U.S. to qualify for Gold Cup.

But the USMNT’s aforementioned 1-1 draw with El Salvador looms large: Even if the Yanks were to falter in Grenada, they’ll be the Group D winner by beating Los Cuscatlecos on March 27 in Orlando.

Three key questions for USMNT in March

1. Center forwards still needed, but is there anyone ready for the task? The Nos. 1, 2, and 3 non-Reyna-related question for Gregg Berhalter when the World Cup ended was why he chose his center forwards, how he used them, and why they didn’t score goals. Haji Wright was the only CF to score at the World Cup and that was the first center forward goal in six USMNT matches. Jesus Ferreira scored four the previous game, but that was against Grenada and the FC Dallas star has three more goals in his 15 other caps. And Timothy Weah, a danger up top when called upon but often a wide man, is injured and will miss the international break.

So where will interim coach Anthony Hudson turn against Grenada and El Salvador?

World Cup cut Ricardo Pepi is back and so is Daryl Dike.

Meet the candidates and their forms:

  • Pepi, 20, is on loan at Dutch side Groningen from Augsburg. He started off hot with Groningen and has nine goals, though he’s scoreless in his last three matches.
  • Dike, 22, is fit and firing for West Bromwich Albion, where he’s scored four times in his last five Championship appearances, all starts.

This is one of those “prove it” camps, with Christian Pulisic and Giovanni Reyna among those helping to cue up chances for their center forwards. If you’re not gonna get the job done against Grenada and El Salvador, you’re missing the boat.

2. Who steps into the Tyler Adams role? Tyler Adams has unflinchingly been Leeds’ most consistent and steady player in a year of tumult, and he’s proven the same time and again in a USMNT shirt.

But he’s not here!

So there will be no “MMA” midfield of Weston McKennie, Yunus Musah, and Adams. The first two pieces are here from Leeds and Valencia, but it’ll be a third piece to complete the trio. Luca de la Torre of Celta Vigo and Alan Sonora of Juarez have been called into camp and Johnny Cardoso is the most defense-minded of the bunch if the team is to go “like-for-like.” Cardoso, 21, is starting for Internacional in Brazil, who trails only Gremio on the Gaucho table.

3. What’s the state of mind? Look, the “youth soccer” and “extremely childish” incident has made for plenty of discussion online, but the U.S. group seemed plenty bonded after Giovanni Reyna’s World Cup camp incidents had happened but were yet to be exposed by Gregg Berhalter at a “private” speech.

So, in theory, Reyna will arrive back into a USMNT camp in need of consistent effort and good attitude but as a member of the fold. The problem may be that the fold thought it left the World Cup with Berhalter either returning as head coach or with a search being conducted for a new coach.

It turns out, it’s only mostly the latter; Berhalter remains a candidate for the U.S. job and has been in Europe to see his “former” players. His assistant, Anthony Hudson, remains in charge of the first team on an interim basis and who can really know how much input Berhalter may currently have on the group.

All of that said, the USMNT is better than both of its opponents, regardless of venues, and should look superior to them even without Adams and Weah. Should is still pretty conditional, so let’s see what statement comes out of these two games in the favorites role, because it’s going to be quite a while before the Yanks are a clear underdog again.

Projected USMNT lineup for Nations League games in March


The USMNT have two intriguing CONCACAF Nations League games coming up at Grenada and at home against El Salvador over the next week and interim head coach Anthony Hudson has some big decisions to make.

[ MORE: How to watch Premier League in USA

Who is the starter in goal? Who will replace the injured Tyler Adams in midfield? Will Gio Reyna start in attack? And perhaps the biggest question for the USMNT over the last few years: who is going to start as the No. 9?

Below is a look at the projected USMNT lineup for the key Nations League games, with this international window a key window ahead of the Gold Cup this summer.

Projected USMNT lineup for Nations League games vs Grenada, El Salvador

—– Turner —–

— Dest — M. Robinson — Ream — A. Robinson —

—- McKennie —- Musah —-

—- Reyna —- Aaronson —- Pulisic —-

—– Pepi —–

Analysis of the USMNT lineup options

There is a real battle between Matt Turner, Ethan Horvath and Zack Steffen emerging. Not quite Friedel, Meola and Keller, but it’s still very good. Turner has looked understandably shaky for Arsenal in his recent Europa League outings and he needs to head out on loan to play regularly next season. That is what Steffen and Horvath have done and their moves from the Premier League to the Championship have worked out perfectly as they’re both regulars for teams battling for promotion to England’s top-flight. Don’t be surprised if Steffen starts over Turner in at least one of these games.

The back four pretty much picks itself with three of the four starters from the World Cup included in this squad in Sergio Dest, Tim Ream and Antonee Robinson. Having Miles Robinson back is a huge boost and it will be intriguing to see his partnership alongside Ream.

In midfield, captain Tyler Adams is missing through injury but you can expect Weston McKennie and Yunus Musah to both be deployed in their usual areas in the engine room. It would be great if Brenden Aaronson was given a free role in the No. 10 position to roam and create just ahead of them but Luca de la Torre could come straight in for Adams in a more defensive kind of role.

In attack Christian Pulisic is a lock on the left wing, while on the right it is time for Gio Reyna to come back into the fold as a regular now that he has finally had regular minutes under his belt at Borussia Dortmund with his injury issues hopefully behind him.

Up top it is one of Daryl Dike, Ricardo Pepi or Alex Zendejas with Taylor Booth an intriguing option following his first senior call-up. It will be fun to see if either Dike or Pepi can take this chance to nail down a starting spot as both have been in good form for West Brom and Groningen respectively, while Zendejas has been in good form for Club America.
