Pires: If Chelsea win, it’s done


Former Gunner Robert Pires says that if Chelsea beat Arsenal tomorrow then the Gunners involvement in the title race is done for another season.

Currently 9 points behind the league leaders, a win would basically end any chance of Antonio Conte’s team over the final 14 games of the campaign.

On the other hand though, an Arsenal win would tighten things up to just 6 points, and from there you never know. I mean, we probably do know, but you also never know. The world is a weird and strange place these days where nothing is impossible anymore.

Speaking the Premier League, Pires, said, “For me this is a final for the Premier League,” Pires said.

“If Chelsea beat Arsenal it’s done, the Premier League. But if Arsenal beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, anything is possible.

“The key for this game is the battle between Laurent Koscielny and Diego Costa. Koscielny is one of the best in the Premier League. Diego Costa loves to defend the ball, loves the fight and is a very good striker.

“So this is the key at Stamford Bridge: Koscielny v Costa.”
