Venue: Emirates Stadium (London)
Arsenal vs Chelsea Preview
Sitting six points behind fourth-placed visitors following the latest weekend’s 1-0 disaster at West Ham, Arsenal (W12, D5, L5) realistically cannot allow losing if they require a Champions League recovery. Yet with only one Premier League win versus Chelsea in 14 matches (W1, D5, L8) since 2011, the ‘Gunners’ will be underdogs here.
The loss we mentioned earlier was the first game in which Emery players did not score a goal this season in the league. This shows how weak they are lately (Since December 2W, 1D, 3L) by comparing them to the previous run of 22 unbeaten matches in all competitions. Still, at home, they perform more than well with only one loss so far and eight wins in 11 games.
Chelsea who have three losses so far is without loss in last five games with 3 wins and one draw in the league (all with one goal margin). Having conceded only eight goals on the road, it makes them the third-best team on this bench.
Arsenal vs Chelsea Head-to-head (H2H)
- Last game Chelsea won with 3:2 back in August.
- 3 of last four have seen more than 2.5 goals
Arsenal vs Chelsea Prediction
Arsenal is the team with the most goals league games (3.55 on average for both teams). I can not imagine that it is possible to watch a match in which to “park the bus” from these two teams.
Chelsea average 1.90 goals per away PL, while the home team will attack too. Better to bet on goals here.
