Chelsea vs Arsenal Betting Tip and Predictions. In the first match of 6th round in Premier League, in a big city derby, Chelsea host Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea started this season very poor and this is their worst start of the season in the last few years. After 5 matches, they are standing at 17th position with only two points more than the first team in relegation zone, so the match against Arsenal don’t coming at the right moment. But, Diego Costa think differently. “There’s nothing better than a game against Arsenal to win and fix this situation. – said Costa.
“It doesn’t matter they beat us in the Community Shield. ‘It’s just Chelsea against Arsenal. It’s a match we want to win.” – said Jose Mourinho.
Home team made a good result in the opening match in Champions league this season, beating Maccabi Tel Aviv 4-0, but Arsenal is much stronger team and it won’t be an easy job for Jose Mourinho to make a good result.
Chelsea are unbeaten against Arsenal in their last seven Premier League matches (4-3-0).
Arsenal stand at the 4th position after 5 matches. After surprising defeat at the first round against West Ham, Arsenal is undefeated and they are looking for points in this match. Four days ago they lost in the first round of UEFA Champions League against Dinamo Zagreb, so the second consecutive defeat is not the option for Arsene Wenger.
These two teams have already met in the Community Shield when Arsenal beat Chelsea 1-0.
