Premier League: Chelsea vs Arsenal

Chelsea vs Arsenal Betting Tip and Predictions. In the opening match of Round 24 in Premier League, in the big city derby, Chelsea host Arsenal at Stamford Bridge. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Chelsea vs Arsenal.

Chelsea stand at the top of the table in Premier League and they are the main candidate for the title this season. If they continue with the good performance in the next period, Antonio Conte‘s men will definitely lift the trophy at the end of the season. Home side play very good this season and they are playing fantastic especially against not strong teams, but when they faced with stronger opponents results are not impressive. Chelsea have already lost this season against Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal, but upfront their supporters they are amazing. In the first part of the season Arsenal smashed Chelsea 3-0, so home team will be fully motivated to revenge them. Their defender, Branislav Ivanovic, who didn’t play too much after Chelsea’s manager switched formation to 3-4-3, left the club and joined FC Zenit Saint Petersburg. Except him, home team have full squad available and have no problems with injured and suspended players. In the previous round, Chelsea took an important points against Liverpool (1-1), so if they manage to stay unbeaten against Arsenal, the title will be closer.

Arsenal stand at the 3rd position in Premier League with 9 points less than their opponent. If they lost this game, the title race for them will definitely be over. Visitors unexpectedly lost against Watford 1-2 in the previous round, so they have to wake up and start playing better. The match against Chelsea maybe is not the great chance for easy win, but they have already beat them this season, so they hope that can repeat the success from the first part of the season. Their coach Arsene Wenger will probably have to make some changes, especially in the attack. Giroud, who had some good performance in the recent period, wasn’t impressive in the last few games and he’s doubtful for this game, could start the game on the bench, which means that their top scorer Alexis Sanchez could start in the attack and replace him as central striker. Theo Walcott has recovered from an injury and he could start this game, but it depends of vision of their manager.
