- 12.00 pm: Chelsea vs Arsenal
Chelsea vs Arsenal betting previewChelsea have underwhelmed in recent weeks and are struggling with injuries, but at least they returned to winning ways in midweek, as they defeated Dinamo Zagreb 2-1 in Champions League. The Blues will be aiming to bounce back in the Premier League after suffering a 4-1 loss at manager Graham Potter's former side Brighton last time out in the top-flight. Anyway, suffering just one defeat in 11 games is far from the worst start for the Englishman.
After Europa League defeat and a slip-up against Southampton, Arsenal also returned to form in style last weekend as they hammered Nottingham Forest 5-0 in front of a jubilant Emirates Stadium, as super-sub Reiss Nelson came on for the injured Bukayo Saka to score a brace. That result allows the Gunners entering this weekend still two points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table. As to European competitions, the Gunners beat FC Zurich (1-0) to secure top spot in their Europa League group on Thursday.
As to direct encounters, Arsenal have won their last two games at Stamford Bridge (with a 2-0 win for Chelsea at the Emirates sandwiched in between), but haven’t won three in a row at Chelsea’s home since 1974.
For the first time in many years, Arsenal don't head into the fixture as underdogs in what is one of the most highly anticipated games this weekend.
Actually, both teams have the same odds in the Win market.
Chelsea (3-4-1-2): Mendy; Chalobah, Thiago Silva, Koulibaly; Loftus-Cheek, Jorginho, Kovacic, Cucurella; Mount; Aubameyang, Sterling
N’Golo Kante, Wesley Fofana and Reece James are medium-to-long-term absentees, while Kepa Arrizabalaga looks set to join them on the sidelines for the remaining two Gameweeks before the World Cup with a foot injury. The other absentees are Ben Chilwell and Denis Zakaria, as Meteo Kovacic has recovered and will start in midfield. Up front, Raheem Sterling and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should get the nod over Kai Havertz and Armando Broja, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Marc Cucurella are expected to start as wing backs. At the back, the fit-again Kalidou Koulibaly will partner Thiago Silva and Trevoh Chalobah.
Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli, Jesus
Emile Smith-Rowe remains out but Oleksandr Zinchenko is finally back in the squad after a troublesome calf injury and is likely to start at left-back. Takehiro Tomiyasu limped off with a muscle injury in midweek's Europa League game, so the former Man City player will complete the four man backline alongside Ben White, Gabriel Magalhaes and William Saliba. No chnanges are expected elsewhere, with the likes of Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus leading the line, and Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka and Martin Odegaard playing in the middle of the park.
Chelsea v Arsenal Betting Tips
Chelsea are unbeaten in 12 consecutive matches in all competitions in front of their own fans. On the other side, all five of the points that Arsenal have dropped in the Premier League this season have come on the road.
Despite that, we expect the Gunners to take advantage of the Blues' depleted line-up and travel back to the Emirates with all three points.
We back Arsenal to win 2-1, with Gabriel Jesus our pick in the Anytime Goalscorer market. We don't expect a high-scoring affair, so the Under 3.5 goals bet should be a smart one.
