Arsenal vs Chelsea – After losing to Manchester City 4-1 in the previous Premier League match, Arsenal will be trying to improve on their previous performance here.

In that game, Arsenal had 48% of the possession and 1 of their 8 shots on goal was successful. Rob Holding scored the lone goal for Arsenal in the 86th minute.

Manchester City’s 14 shots on goal at the other end, 4 of them were on target. Manchester City scored goals from Kevin De Bruyne (7′, 54′), John Stones (45′), and Erling Haaland (95′).

Arsenal games have recently proven to be entertaining ones, with a lot of goalmouth action being the usual. 29 goals have been scored overall for both teams in their last 6 meetings (at an average of 4.83 goals per game), with 16 of those coming from Arsenal.

Pre-match statistics show that Chelsea hasn’t defeated Arsenal in their last two league games. They have won all five of their previous league home games.

Chelsea will be looking to right the wrongs from their most recent Premier League loss to Brentford. Chelsea enjoyed 73% of the possession in that game and made 15 attempts on goal, four of which were successful.

César Azpilicueta scored the winning goal for Chelsea (37′ Own Goal). Brentford’s opponents had 7 attempts at goal with 1 of them being on target. Brentford’s goal was scored by Bryan Mbeumo (78′).

The numbers speak for themselves; Chelsea has allowed goals in 5 of their last 6 games, and their opponents have scored 9 goals altogether. Chelsea’s weaknesses have been made obvious at the defense. We’ll soon find out if this tendency can continue.

Arsenal vs Chelsea – Betting Analysis

Looking at their previous head-to-head matches dating back to 01/08/2020 reveals that Arsenal has won 5 of them and Chelsea has won 1, with 0 of these matches ending in draws.

During those matchups, they scored a combined total of 17 goals, 11 for The Gunners and 6 for The Blues. That equals 2.83 goals per game on average.

In their most recent league encounter, Chelsea defeated Arsenal 0–1 on Premier League Match Day 15 on November 6, 2022. Michael Oliver served as the official.

With Aaron Ramsdale, Ben White, Rob Holding, Gabriel, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka, Bukayo Saka, Martin degaard, Gabriel Martinelli, and Gabriel Jesus as starters, we anticipate The Gunners to perhaps open off this match in a 4-2-3-1 system.

Frank Lampard, the manager of Chelsea, is currently dealing with fewer team alternatives. Both Armando Broja and Kalidou Koulibaly will be absent due to cruciate ligament ruptures.

With Kepa Arrizabalaga, Wesley Fofana, Thiago Silva, Trevoh Chalobah, Cesar Azpilicueta, Ngolo Kante, Enzo Fernández, Mateo Kovacic, Benjamin Chilwell, Raheem Sterling, and Joo Félix as their starting goalkeepers, the Blues appear to be most likely to choose a 3-5-2 formation.

We think Arsenal ought to have a lot of shots on goal and convert them. Chelsea, on the other hand, will have a difficult time scoring, though we do believe they will ultimately succeed here at least once.

What are the top odds for this match?

Looking at the betting prices for the match on the win-draw-win market, a win for Arsenal can be had for 1.67, betting on a draw is 4.1 and taking a punt on a victory for Chelsea comes in at 5. They’re the best of the bets offered as of now.
