Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Chelsea have found the net in 10 of their 11 games since Graham Potter took over, while Arsenal haven’t failed to score in the league so far this season. The Blues are missing key players in defence and they’ve seen both teams score in each of their last four.

Draw 2-2

Reason for tip

Graham Potter has a great recent record against Arsenal, but Chelsea have struggled against the Gunners of late. The Blues are unbeaten in nine home league games but four of those have finished level. With both in scoring form and given Chelsea’s defensive issues, back a 2-2 draw in this clash.

Magalhaes Gabriel To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Gabriel has had a shot in each of his last five away trips with Arsenal in the league and he’s averaged just under a shot per game in the league this term. Chelsea have conceded a large chunk of their league goals from set-piece situations this term and they could be vulnerable to a consistent aerial threat like the Brazilian centre-half.

Chelsea vs Arsenal Predictions

  • Arsenal have scored in every Premier League game this term
  • Chelsea have significant availability issues in defence
  • The Blues have scored in 10 of their 11 games under Graham Potter
  • Chelsea’s last four games have seen both teams score

Blues bounce back at a cost

Graham Potter wanted his side to regain confidence in midweek against Dinamo Zagreb, naming a strong side that produced a 2-1 victory. Chelsea have sailed through to the last 16 as group winners, but they lost Ben Chilwell to injury in the process.

The Blues are now weakened heading into a huge game on Sunday. They meet Premier League leaders Arsenal, knowing another slip would be a major blow to their top four hopes. Chelsea haven’t lost consecutive league games since 2020, but can that hold against an impressive Gunners side?

Arsenal can hurt Blues

Arsenal have all the ingredients to cause problems at Stamford Bridge and they can do it early on. The Gunners have scored 11 goals in the opening 30 minutes of Premier League games this season, more than any other side.

They average 1.83 goals per away trip and have scored in every league game so far, so back them to hurt a Chelsea defence which has been weakened through injury.

The Gunners can also exploit Chelsea’s set-piece issues, with the Blues conceding four goals from that method so far this term. Defender Gabriel Magalhaes has been a consistent set-piece threat for the Gunners, averaging just shy of a shot per game. He’s had a chance in their last five league trips, so he’s a great outsider in the anytime scorer stakes in this clash.

Can Gunners shut out Blues?

Chelsea head into this one with defensive injury concerns, with their two first-choice full-backs, their first-choice goalkeeper and record defensive signing all out. N’Golo Kante will also miss out with Mateo Kovacic a doubt, so the Blues’ defensive foundations have been shaken.

However, they have a fine record going forward having scored in all their home games this term. They meet an Arsenal side who have conceded in 17 of their last 22 league games, with the Blues scoring in 10 of their 11 games under Graham Potter. With the hosts’ last four games seeing both teams score, that’s my main selection for Sunday.

Chelsea have lost three of their last four league games against Arsenal (W1), more than they had in their previous 17 against the Gunners. However, Graham Potter has a good record against Arsenal and he’s lost just once as Blues boss. The hosts are unbeaten in nine at home in the league, drawing four of those. Back them for another draw with 2-2 my correct score prediction.
