Arsenal v Chelsea Team News

Arsenal hope Mesut Ozil will be passed fit after he missed the draw with West Brom due to a knee problem. Sead Kolasinac is also a doubt after hobbling out of the game at The Hawthorns. Aaron Ramsey, Santi Cazorla, Nacho Monreal and Olivier Giroud remain out.

For the Blues, Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas and Tiemoue Bakayoko will likely return after being rested against Stoke. Andreas Christensen recovered from an illness to make the bench against the Potters and could start in north London.


Reason for Arsenal v Chelsea Bets

Arsenal and Chelsea have already met twice this season, and this fixture will be the first of another three head-to-heads to be played out in January 2018. This Premier League clash comes exactly a week before the sides meet at Stamford Bridge for the first leg of their League Cup semi-final.

Manchester United’s poor form of late has allowed Chelsea to march into second place in the league, and they currently sit eight points above their London rivals in red, albeit having played an extra game. The Blues are on a good recent run with five wins a draw from the previous six matches in all competitions.

The Gunners meanwhile were disappointing in their draw with the Baggies, although they’ll feel they deserved more from the game after being struck by a soft last-minute penalty.

They’re a different entity at home however, and they’ll fancy themselves against any side at the Emirates, especially after easily dispatching London rivals Spurs there earlier in the season.

Arsenal’s impressive home form, coupled with the Blues’ recent form in general, makes this one too close to call. For that reason, a draw looks the most likely outcome at 5/2 with Betfred.

The Gunners recorded a clean sheet at the Bridge earlier this season, as well as another at home in this fixture last year.

They’ve kept 10 clean sheets at home this season from 15. Furthermore, Antonio Conte’s side have actually drawn a blank in two of their most recent three away matches in the league, failing to score against both Everton and West Ham.

The Blues have also gone four consecutive league matches without conceding themselves, so two decent defensive records means that both teams to score: no is a very tempting bet at 7/5 with Unibet.
