Arsenal v Chelsea Betting Preview
Arsenal have recorded just 3 wins from 9 Premier League games at the Emirates this seasonArsenal picked up a point coming from a goal down at Bournemouth (1-1) on Boxing Day, in what was the first match under Mikel Arteta as head coach. The team had 17 shots against the Cherries, the most they have managed in a Premier League away game this season and more than they managed in their previous two league games. It was the second stalemate in succession after holding Everton at Goodison Park and their fourth winless match in a row. In the last 14 outings, the Gunners have collected just one victory, with 9 draws and 4 defeats. They are closer to the relegation zone than they are the top four.
Arteta will have Calum Chambers available once again as he served his suspension after accumulating five yellow cards. David Luiz will be his defensive partner at the centre, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Bukayo Sako playing as full backs. Having missed out at the weekend, Nicolas Pepe could be handed a starting role, forming with Mesu Ozil and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang the offensive trio behind Alexandre Lacazette. Granit Xhaka and Matteo Guendouzi may get the nod in midfield ahead of Lucas Torreira. The likes Hector Bellerin and Gabriel Martinelli are major douburs while Rob Holding and Dani Ceballos remain sidelined.
Chelsea have netted only six goals in their last seven matchesChelsea lost 2-0 to relegation-threatened Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Boxing Day, their fifth defeat in their last seven Premier League games. The Blues are still fourth in the EPL table but six points from the last available 21 have seen their nine-point cushion cut to just three over the last month.The only two victories in this disappointing run came at home against Aston Villa (2-1) and at Tottenham (0-2) - another north London side – in their last away game just before Christmas. Only City and Liverpool have a better away record in the Premier League than Chelsea this season. Defense is a concern also for the Blues - Frank Lampard's men haven't kept a clean sheet in each of their last nine matches in all competitions.
Frank Lampard will certainly make changes from the side that lost at St.Mary's last time out. The former Derby County manager will desperately hope Mason Mount is fit enough to start, while Mateo Kovacic will feature from the off after missing out on Boxing Day through suspension. Ross Barkley was an unused substitute and could feature for the first time since October after recovering from injury. Christian Pulisic is another option out wide but has perhaps suffered a slight dip in form of late. Tammy Abraham having been the undisputed first-choice option up front in the so-called bigger fixtures but he could face competition from Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud.
