There’s a huge story sweeping the Premier League at the moment, as Chelsea face financial ruin after the UK sanctioned Roman Abramovich.

The Blues are currently unable to sell tickets or merchandise from the club shop, and their credit cards have now been frozen by Barclays.

With the situation yet to be resolved, Arsenal could soon receive a major boost from the perilous situation at Chelsea.

What is the story?

Well, according to The temperaturea nine-point deduction could soon head to Chelsea.

Unless the Blues find a buyer quickly, they run the risk of triggering an insolvency event.

For Arsenal, that would be good news.

The Gunners are currently fourth in the Premier League, although they are eight points behind third-placed Chelsea.

If Thomas Tuchel sees his side drop nine points, that would propel Arsenal into third place, giving them a very, very good chance of qualifying for the Champions League.

Will Arsenal take advantage of Chelsea’s troubles?

To put it simply, Chelsea must find a buyer quickly.

The Blues pay £28m per month in wages, so you can understand the implications of that, as they are currently unable to purchase fuel for the team bus.

According sky sportsthere are ten parties interested in buying Chelsea, although Abramovich has reportedly placed a £3billion price tag on the Blues.

However, it is now up to Chelsea to sort out the sale after Abramovich’s sanction, and any interested buyers must then work with the UK government.

The sanction imposed on Abramovich aims to ensure the 55-year-old does not make money in England and profit from the sale of Chelsea.

Keep an eye on this saga as things will get tougher for Chelsea with each passing day unless a buyer is found.
