Arsenal-Chelsea Wasted Opportunity, Champions League Hot Zone

Arsenal and Chelsea missed the opportunity to be in the front position to qualify for the Champions League next season. The disappointing results of the two London teams in the 35th week of the English League made the competition in the big four zone even more exciting.

Arsenal failed to take advantage of the opportunity to win three points when playing in their home. Unexpectedly, the Gunners defeated 1-2 of Crystal Palace while playing at Emirates Stadium, London.

Former Arsenal player Ray Parlor regretted the defeat of the Gunners from Crystal Palace at the weekend. Parlor said the defeat made Arsenal lose a golden opportunity to secure a position in the Champions League zone.

Parlor believes that the defeat was a golden opportunity wasted by his former team. “After seeing Manchester United and Spurs lose, I think they have a very good chance because they are playing at home,” Parlor told Talk Sport.

Parlor himself was surprised that the Gunners’ troops had fallen in the hands of Crystal Palace at the weekend. He considered Arsenal to have a good home record so that the defeat was an anomaly for the North London stronghold.

“Arsenal have a very good record at the Emirates this year. They only lost to Manchester City among the other six big teams, where they held on to Liverpool and beat Man United, Spurs and Chelsae there.”

A similar situation was experienced by their rivals, Chelsea at home to Burnley at Stamford Bridge, early this morning. Although not inferior, the score 2-2 draw when playing in home itself became a big loss for the Blues.

Maurizio Sarri’s side had a great chance past Tottenham when they won over Burnley. However, this draw makes them have to settle for just one level up to fourth place displacing Arsenal with a score of 66 points.

The failure of Chelsea and Arsenal to win at home is good news for Tottenham and Manchester United. The Lilywhites defeat 0-1 by Manchester City and Man United were slaughtered by Everton 0-4.

The third and fourth place in the English Premier League are currently occupied by Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea. Both teams both gained 67 points.

The position of Spurs and Chelsea was closely followed by Arsenal with 66 points and Manchester United with 64 points.

Chelsea are likely to have the most pressure to be able to secure a Champions League ticket. Because the Blues only have three games left.

While Spurs, Arsenal and Man United still have four matches before the Premier League this season ends.

In terms of schedule, the hardest chance to qualify for the Champions League is blocking Man United because it will still meet Chelsea and Man City. While Arsenal and Tottenham will only meet the middle and bottom board.
