Chelsea travel north to take on Leeds at Elland Road with relegation places and the top-four still to be decided.
It would still take a huge collapse but stranger things have happened in football.
The Gunners beat Leeds United at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon and with Everton getting the better of Leicester, Jesse Marsch’s men slipped into the relegation zone with just three matches left to play.
A clash with Chelsea will have been one of the last fixtures the American will have wanted but they will be boosted with the backing of a vocal home crowd.
After a dramatic late win against Norwich at the start of his spell in charge, Marsch spoke of the impact the fans had on his side and himself.
It is a secret weapon he will no doubt be hoping will spur on his struggling side to a much-needed three points in midweek too.
“I feel like I played 96 minutes! Obviously there’s a lot of emotion in the late stages of the match,” the former RB Leipzig manager told the club’s website following the win.
“I’ve heard a lot about the magic of Elland Road, it’s certainly an incredible experience. My family were here for the first time today.”
“When you talk about individual moments in your career, that was certainly special. I know I’ll remember that one for a long time.”
It is a secret weapon that Chelsea will have to be prepared for.
Given the precarious situation of their side, the boisterous home support is likely to only be intensified.
