Book cheap London hostels for upcoming North London derby

A Premier League clash which could alter the swing of the title race takes place on Boxing Day when Chelsea travel to the Emirates Stadium to take on Arsenal.

Football fans are sure to find some entertainment by booking up some cheap London hostels and packing into the 60,000 plus seater venue, no matter if they support either of the clubs or are neutral fans looking for some sporting action over the Christmas period.

The pair have already clashed once in the league so far this season, with Chelsea fans able to claim the bragging rights after sweeping aside their London rivals at Stamford Bridge at the start of October.

Fans of the blue side of the capital have also had plenty of success over the Gunners in the 2009/10 season, when they were on the right side of 2-0 and 3-0 scorelines.

However, both London teams have had plenty of success to keep their fans in good spirits in the current campaign, with Chelsea currently leading the table with 22 points after nine games, whereas Arsenal are sitting close behind in second, where they having racked up 17 points.

The Blues started the season very strongly, with five back-to-back wins over teams such as newly-promoted West Bromwich Albion and Blackpool, as well as a 6-0 thrashing when playing away to Wigan Athletic.

Arsenal supporters snapping up a room in some cheap hostels in London to catch their team in action on Boxing Day have also had plenty to cheer about.

That is because the Gunners have so far managed to pull out wins over teams like Blackpool, Birmingham City and a 3-0 win over big-spending and title-chasing rivals Manchester City.
