Reasons For Chelsea vs. Arsenal Predictions & Betting Tips

Reigning Premier League champions Chelsea come into the match on a run of 4 successive wins, including a 6-0 midweek thrashing of minnows Qarabag in the Champions League. Antonio Conte’s side will be full of confidence, especially with the return of Eden Hazard to the team.

Although Arsenal were worthy winners in last season’s FA Cup final and also claimed the FA Community Shield on penalties, the Blues have won the last 5 meetings at Stamford Bridge and should be the fresher of the two teams, having had two extra days to rest and prepare for the match.

Conte also rotated in midweek, meaning the likes of star striker and record summer signing Alvaro Morata, David Luiz and Tiemoue Bakayoko will come back into the team having had a break in midweek. This should work in the Blues’ favour, although Arsenal did the same in the Europa League against Koln last night.

Chelsea are renowned for their strength in defence, whereas Arsenal have often looked fragile against the big teams especially away from home, which is why we’re backing Chelsea to win and keep a clean sheet at 3.25 with bet365. 2-0 could be a possible scoreline, with odds of 10.0 at bet365.

The aforementioned Morata is particularly flourishing at his new club, and as the only real out and out goalscorer in the Chelsea team, the Spaniard looks a good bet to score the game’s first goal (4.50 with bet365). He has 3 in 4 Premier League matches so far, and also scored 3 times for Spain in the recent international break.

Chelsea will be desperate for revenge against the Gunners after their two final defeats earlier in the year, and will be motivated by what should be a hostile atmosphere against their London rivals. There is always drama when these two teams meet, so it should be an entertaining match in store.

Chelsea Team News

Chelsea will be without Danny Drinkwater due to a calf strain, which is set to keep him out for a few weeks. Otherwise they have a clean bill of health, with Eden Hazard fit again after injury. Diego Costa remains AWOL and has almost certainly played his last game for the club.

Arsenal Team News

Midfield duo Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla are definitely out, although Calum Chambers may be available after recovering from injury.
