Chelsea v Arsenal Betting Preview
Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 7 competitive matches (W3 D4)Chelsea have already secured Champions League football after finishing third in the Premier League this season, although they failed to beat Leicester on the last day of the Premier League season. The Blues required a penalty shootout to come through against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League semifinals, after both legs ended 1-1. Maurizio Sarri's men have been almost perfect in this competition so far, winning 12 and drawing just two of their fourteen games.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek ruptured his Achilles in the friendly against New England Revolution - ruling him out of action for around nine months. The midfielder has joined Callum Hudson-Odoi on the sidelines for the same reason. Antonio Rudiger's season was ended after he underwent surgery on his left knee meniscus while N'Golo Kante missed the last two outings and remains a major doubt for the final. Ross Barkley and Mateo Kovacic are the likely replacements in midfield, while Andreas Christensen should partner David Luiz at the heart of the back. Up front, Olivier Giroud should get the nod over Gonzalo Higuain for the central berth. The Frenchman is likely to be flanked by Pedro and Eden Hazard.
Arsenal's Champions League qualification hopes now rest on this finalArsenal were last in action when they brought the curtain down on their domestic season with a 3-1 win at Burnley. They fell just short in finishing fifth behind London rivals Chelsea and Tottenham in the Premier League, so Champions League qualification can only be secured by lifting the Europa League trophy. The Gunners eased past Valencia in the semifinals, they beat the La Liga outfit 3-1 at Emirates and scored 4 goals at the Mestalla Stadium to seal an overall 7-3 win on aggregate. Prior to that, Arsenal beat Napoli both at home (2-0) and away (0-1). Unai Emery's men have failed to keep a cleen sheet in the last 7 matches in all competitions.
Outgoing midfield star Aaron Ramsey will miss out for the Gunners. Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding, Danny Welbeck and Denis Suarez are the other injured players. Petr Cech will start between the post in what will be the last game of his professional career, with the likes of Sokratis, Laurent Koscielny and Nascho Monreal protecting his goal. Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Sead Kolasinac are the likely wing-backs while Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira should form the central pair in the middle of the park. Mesut Ozil and Alex Iwobi are in contention to start as number ten behind the offensive duo formed by Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang while Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be unable to travel due to safety concerns.
