Tottenham Hotspur legend Osvaldo Ardiles has his say on Sunday’s Premier League clash between Chelsea and Arsenal.

Arsenal will lose the London derby against Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday.

That’s the prediction of Tottenham Hotspur legend Osvaldo Ardiles, who believes that the Gunners will suffer a 3-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge.

Ardiles, a World Cup winner with Argentina in 1978, made his prediction on BBC Sport’s website.

The 62-year-old's predicted scoreline may seem a bit harsh, but not many neutral fans will disagree with his belief that Chelsea will win the contest.

Despite Arsenal’s comprehensive 4-1 victory over Galatasaray at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Wednesday, Chelsea will head into Sunday's encounter as the favourites.

Jose Mourinho’s side have been by far the most impressive and best team in the Premier League so far this season.

Star striker Diego Costa is on fire, while defensively the Blues are strong as ever. Arsenal should not be written off just yet, but a win at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea may just be out of their reach.
