Unbeaten Arsenal managed to pass their biggest challenge yet last time when they knocked off defending champions Manchester City at the Emirates. They will face a resurgent Chelsea team that has won its previous two matches. 

The visitors will have a spring in their step, believing they can lift the PL trophy this season. Chelsea will not make it easy for them with Mauricio Pochettino having a fortress at home against Arsenal (3 wins & 3 draws). The tension is electric!

Chelsea might’ve been hoping the international break would solve their injury crisis. However, the problems seem to compound with Captain Reece James suffering a setback.

Mikel Arteta boasts a win rate of 62.5% against Chelsea, coming in third after Dalglish (76.9%) and Guardiola (64.3%). Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 15 London derbies. Can they keep the streak alive?

Chelsea vs Arsenal Predictions and Odds

Chelsea suffered defeats in their last two home games against Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest. On the flip side, Arsenal is on a tear – just one loss in their last 12 games.

Arsenal have yet to concede an away goal this season and hope to continue with this streak. The defence is rock solid, and they’ve averaged two goals per game so far this season. They have won six of their last seven games against Chelsea, and you’d have to go back to August 2018 to find a time when Chelsea prevailed against them at Stamford Bridge. 

Chelsea vs Arsenal Betting Tips

Arsenal have been impressive in defence this season and played with aggression and discipline when out of possession. This is bound to frustrate a Chelsea side that has been collecting yellow cards this season like they’re Pokémon cards. Nicolas Jackson alone has five in just six PL appearances. Chilwell and Enzo have also joined the caution list for Chelsea, with three yellow cards apiece this season. 

On the Arsenal side, only Crystal Palace has received fewer yellow cards than them in the Premier League. The discipline levels are bound to remain at the same level. At the same time, Chelsea will struggle to maintain their composure, especially against a solid opposition aiming to frustrate them and capitalize on their mistakes.

So, the table is set for a blockbuster match you won’t want to miss!
