Arsenal vs Chelsea Predictions
Arsenal to Win @ 1.73 (8/11)
Arsenal endured a tough defeat to Man City in the league, but there was very little they could do against one of the best teams in the world. They have been better than Chelsea this season, and there is a 36-point gap between these two teams ahead of this game. Arsenal dominated Chelsea in the reverse fixture earlier this season, and with the Blues on a steady decline, this should be another comfortable win for the Gunners.
Chelsea has been sitting outside the top ten for weeks, and they have lost their last five games with just one goal scored in that period. This is the kind of game where the Gunners should easily bounce back, and Arsenal’s winning odds are quite valuable.
Total Goals – Chelsea – Under 0.5 @ 2.50 (6/4)
Chelsea’s lone Premier League goal in April was a deflected strike at home to Brighton, and their attack has been very poor. They have managed just 30 goals in 32 league games this season and are not even averaging up to a goal per game. Chelsea couldn’t find the net against the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Aston Villa and Brentford. Arsenal has kept two consecutive clean sheets against Chelsea, and with the Blues looking very blunt in attack, the Gunners can keep a clean sheet in this game.
Team to Receive More Bookings – Chelsea @ 1.83 (5/6)
Chelsea players have been in the books more often in their last few games, and they are averaging more than two bookings every 90 minutes. Coincidentally, a huge number of Chelsea’s bookings have come away from home. This season, Arsenal has received 21 fewer bookings than Chelsea in the English Premier League. A bet on Chelsea to receive more cards than Arsenal has very valuable odds on the best football bookies.
