The two sides went head to head in last season’s FA Cup final and again in the Community Shield with the Gunners coming out on top on both occasions. But it’s the Blues who have enjoyed a brighter start to the new Premier League season.
After losing to Burnley on the opening day Chelsea have bounced back in style with four consecutive victories including victory at Wembley against Spurs and a six nil demolishing of Qarabag in the Champions League midweek.
No Costa, no problem! Summer signing Alvaro Morata has hit the ground running scoring three goals in four games and was rested in the Champions League with Sunday in mind.
His ability in the air will cause Arsenal’s vulnerable defence bags of problems and at 7/2 he looks good value to open the scoring.
As for Arsenal they’ve recorded back to back wins following two defeats on the road and rested a number of key players during their clash with Cologne in the Europa League – a decision which didn’t go down well with Arsenal fans – the Wenger Out brigade look to be surfacing once again.
Arsenal have conceded 9 goals in five games already this season and Wenger can ill-afford another disappointment so early in the campaign.
Eden Hazard featured from the bench during the week for the Blues and is expected to start against Arsenal on Sunday. Wenger meanwhile is expected to recall Petr Cech, Mesut Ozil, Laurent Koscielny and Alexandre Lacazette for their trip to Stamford Bridge.
The stats don’t read well for Wenger and Arsenal who have lost seven of their last eight visits to Stamford Bridge. In fact The Gunners last won an away game against one of last season’s top-six teams almost 1000 days ago, when they beat Man City in 2015.
Chelsea have scored at least two goals in 8 of their last 12 home games against Arsenal, and I fully expect the trend to continue on Sunday.
Chelsea to win and over 2.5 goals looks a great bet at 8/5, and thats what we’re on today. And, if you take advantage of the Paddy Power offer, you’ll get your money back if it loses.
