Arsenal vs Chelsea Betting Tips
It’s the London Derby that’s on the program this Sunday, with Arsenal welcoming Chelsea. Neither side can be too proud of their latest performances but both teams are very hopeful the good days are coming. Arsenal, who are in the bottom half of the Premier League table, now got a new manager Mikel Arteta. Chelsea, on the other hand, are now free to shop around in the January transfer window with their transfer ban being lifted finally.
Both teams wish to finish the year successfully, wining at least a point. For Arsenal, a win would mean that the club has made the right choice appointing Arteta as the manager. His managerial debut happened on the Boxing Day, when the Gunners played draw with Bournemouth. Not too impressive start of the career, but Arsenal didn’t look too bad in that match, at least not as bad as they were only a few rounds ago.
Chelsea, on the other hand, have started the season very well, but lately, they’ve been dropping points all over the place. In the previous four rounds, they lost three games, namely against Everton, Bournemouth, and Southampton. They did, however, beat Mourinho’s Tottenham, which suggests that Chelsea play best when facing a tough opponent.
Arsenal might not be thought of as the toughest opponent in the league, but the Gunners do play attacking football. And that means that Chelsea will have their chance to play their favorite tactic, which is to employ quick counter-attacks. Knowing that Arsenal have been very poor at the back, it seems very likely that the Blues will be able to score at least one goal.
The question is can Chelsea win the London Derby? Arsenal are famously good when playing at home, even though they lost their previous three home matches. Still, this team usually wins most of their points every season at their stadium. Speaking of home turf advantage, Arsenal are without a home defeat in competitive games against Chelsea since January 2016.
