How fresh will the Blues be entering this contest? Chelsea took on Tottenham in the EFL Cup semifinals on Tuesday with many of the important players playing, like Eden Hazard and N’golo Kante. After a busy time around the holidays, will this be the time where we start seeing some tired legs for the Blues?

Commenting on the West Ham vs Arsenal game, Owen said: “Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 11 away games against West Ham in all competitions, but if there is to be a winner at the London Stadium I feel it will be the hosts, as I still have my reservations about the Gunners defensive capabilities.
