Past Chelsea v Arsenal Meetings

Last season, the side playing at home won the points, with Arsenal winning at the Emirates in both the league and the FA Cup, and the Blues winning the match at the Bridge.

Arsenal then began the new season with a penalty shootout victory over Chelsea in a feisty Community Shield clash at Wembley.

 


Chelsea v Arsenal Stats

There have been five sending offs in their last six head-to-heads, with the Blues getting a man expelled in the last two.

Chelsea have enjoyed 120 Premier League London derby wins, more than any other side and two more than the Gunners.

The Blues have won their last five home encounters with the Gunners, conceding just twice in the process.


Chelsea v Arsenal Team News

 

Alexis Sanchez could make his first start of the season, having come off the bench last weekend against Bournemouth. That could be the only change to the starting lineup from the side that convincingly beat the Cherries.

For the Blues, Eden Hazard could also make his first start of the 2017/18 campaign. New signing Danny Drinkwater is still absent due to an ankle injury, but Gary Cahill returns from a three-match suspension.


Reason for Chelsea v Arsenal Bets

Few matches have been feistier than Arsenal versus Chelsea in recent years. The fixture has produced a staggering five red cards (Arsenal 3, Chelsea 2) in the last six head-to-heads, with Chelsea receiving a red in the last two matches. The aggressively-contested Community Shield back in August, which is normally a bit of a drab affair, was a clear sign of their rivalry.

Both sides managed three points last weekend, the Gunners thrashing Bournemouth and the Blues seeing off Leicester. They both then had to play mid-week European matches, although Antonio Conte’s side have benefitted from an extra two days rest due to playing on Tuesday. Whilst a win would help keep the Blues within reach of top spot, a loss for the Gunners would see them lingering mid-table, and doubts could resurface over Arsene Wenger’s future.

Both clubs should be welcoming back key men –Alexis Sanchez and Eden Hazard are both likely to make their first Premier League starts of the season and their influence could be vital here.

When picking a winner between these two, it’s normally a good idea to back the home side, especially at the Bridge where Chelsea have win their last five matches against the Gunners. Home win has actually happened in six of the last eight head-to-heads in all competitions, excluding the Community Shield. A Chelsea win can be found at 5/6 with Paddy Power.

In terms of a specific bet, it’s interesting to note that both teams to score (BTTS) has only happened in one of their last eight Premier League encounters. For that reason, back a Chelsea win to nil at 23/10 with William Hill.
