FA Community Shield: Arsenal vs Chelsea Betting Tip and Predictions

Arsenal vs Chelsea Betting Tip and Predictions. In the pre-match of the season, in the final of FA Community Shield will meet two big city rivals, FA Cup winners Arsenal and Premier League champions Chelsea.

The Premier league start next week, so this match could be the first big match this season in England for watching.

Arsenal had very good season behind, they finished the last season at the top 3 teams and will play in the upcoming UEFA Champions league and win the trophy of FA Cup after they beat Aston Villa in the final 4-1. After that match and short break, Arsene Wenger‘s team played four preparation matches in the last two weeks and won all. First, they played at Premier League Asia Trophy and smashed Singapore XI 4-0, while in the final they beat Everton 3-1 and won the first trophy this season. After that they played at the Emirates Cup and made another two win. Lyon has been humiliated 6-0, while in the second match on this competition Arsenal beat Wolfsburg 1-0. In four matches they scored 14 goals and conceded one single goal and announced that they could one of the favorites to win the Premier League this season. Arsenal didn’t make many changes in team from the last season and all players who played the last season will be together. The only new face in team is ex-Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech, who could make his debut against their previous team.

Chelsea showed the best football last season and they deserved to win the title. The ambitions for this season are the same – to win the Premier League again and make better success in the UEFA Champions league. Jose Mourinho‘s team played few preparation matches – in the last two matches they beat two very strong teams – PSG and Barcelona. Chelsea look stronger than the last season, despite the fact that didn’t make many changes in team. All players will play again this season, they know each other better and without any doubt they are the main favorites to retain the title. The only new player in Chelsea is Radamel Falcao who will help Mourinho’s side to be more effective in the attack.

Arsenal vs Chelsea injuries and suspensions

Arsenal will miss Alexis Sanchez and David Ospina who both got extra time off after their Copa America 2015, while Danny Welbeck still have a problem with a knee injury.

Diego Costa (hamstring) and Gary Cahill (nose) had some problems with injuries, but they should play today. Falcao could make his debut against Arsenal.

Arsenal vs Chelsea possible lineups:

Arsenal: Cech, Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Coquelin, Cazorla, Ramsey, Ozil, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Walcott.

Chelsea: Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Ramires, Matic, Willian, Fabregas, Hazard, Costa.

Arsenal vs Chelsea Betting Tip and Predictions

Both teams are in the good form and this could be very interesting match between Arsenal vs Chelsea in which we could see many battles at the middle of the pitch. In the matches like these, every result is possible, but Arsenal and Chelsea have very good defences, so I believe that we will see no more than two goals on this match.
