Dixon: Chelsea may target Arsenal's right

15 Aug 2018

Former right-back says how his successor Hector Bellerin deals with Eden Hazard may decide Saturday's match

Lee Dixon believes that Saturday’s match between Chelsea and Arsenal could be decided in the position where he used to play for the Gunners.

The former right-back says that after Arsenal were tested down their right by Manchester City and Raheem Sterling on the opening weekend, Chelsea and Eden Hazard might target this same area at Stamford Bridge.

How much support Mesut Ozil provides to Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin could be crucial, Dixon believes.

"Hazard will come wide and go inside and Bellerin must decide whether Ozil goes with him or he goes tight," says Dixon. "So there are a lot of question marks to be asked about that [Arsenal] right-back, right-midfield area."
