Chelsea have enjoyed mixed fortunes against Arsenal in all competitions of late but their Premier League record against the Gunners at Stamford Bridge makes impressive reading.
The Blues have won the last five encounters between these sides at this venue by an aggregate score of 15-2 and are worthy favourites to come out on top again here in our book.
We’re kicking off our Chelsea vs Arsenal betting tips by taking 4/5 for a home victory.
A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds
Chelsea have shown great fortitude to bounce back from a shock loss to Burnley in the first round of Premier League fixtures, rallying with three straight wins in this competition.
The champions followed up triumphs over Tottenham and Everton by putting in a strong performance to prevail 2-1 at Leicester.
Jamie Vardy’s 62nd-minute penalty set up a tense finish, but Chelsea had been well in control up until that point and could have been out of sight with more clinical finishing.
Antonio Conte was pleased to see Alvaro Morata make it three league goals so far, with the striker having also netted for Spain versus Italy during the international break.
“It is always important for a striker to score, but for me it is important he is improving and always more involved in our football,” said the manager.
With Eden Hazard sure to get sharper after returning from injury, things are looking good for the Blues and they appeal at 7/2 to win 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 in our Chelsea vs Arsenal betting tips.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal can obviously take heart from their FA Cup final and Community Shield triumphs when facing Chelsea at Wembley.
The Gunners also put back-to-back league defeats against Stoke and Liverpool behind them in fine fashion when easing to a 3-0 win over Bournemouth last weekend.
Like this weekend’s opponents, Arsenal were buoyed by the form of their forwards, with Danny Welbeck bagging a brace and Alexandre Lacazette on target too.
More can also be expected of Alexis Sanchez as he comes to terms with missing out on a move to Manchester City.
However, this is the type of fixture where the Gunners’ fragile defence and lack of steel in midfield can prove crucial, although eye-catching wing-backs Sead Kolasinac and Hector Bellerin can create chances at the other end.
Looking at the Chelsea vs Arsenal odds, we just think 23/10 for a home win and both teams to score is the way to go.
