Chelsea vs Arsenal Predictions

  • Both teams have scored in seven of the last ten competitive meetings between these sides
  • Arsenal remain unbeaten after eight league games this season
  • Chelsea have scored six goals across their last two league matches

Gunners out to maintain unbeaten start

Arsenal are one of only two remaining unbeaten teams in the Premier League this term and the Gunners should be full of confidence for their trip to London rivals Chelsea after their recent win over defending champions Manchester City.

A dramatic late winner from Gabriel Martinelli gave Arsenal a 1-0 win at home to City prior to the international break, which leaves them locked level at the top with Tottenham on 20 points from eight games.

Mikel Arteta’s side have dropped points in only two of those outings – 2-2 draws at home to Fulham and Spurs – and they have been clinical on their travels, recording wins to nil against Crystal Palace, Everton and Bournemouth.

Their fast start to the season means they are favourites to triumph at Stamford Bridge, although there have been signs that Blues boss Mauricio Pochettino may be working things out.

Chelsea’s only win from their first six games came at home to promoted Luton but they recorded back-to-back away victories at Fulham and Burnley prior to the international break.

They were fully deserving of those successes and those performances, which featured six goals for and only one against, suggested that things may be starting to click.

Blues should be buoyed by recent efforts

A mass turnover in personnel over the summer and a long list of injuries have proven problematic and, while they are far from full strength, there are reasons to be encouraged.

According to Understat, Chelsea are 4.4 points worse off than they should be and their xG metric of 15.79 is way behind their current goal tally of 11.

That highlights that they have been way better than their current results and that is something that should balance out as the season progresses.

In what was their first home game of the campaign, Chelsea were the better side in a 1-1 draw with Liverpool and goals may be the way to go with the Gunners.

Arsenal have dominated this rivalry recently, winning five of their last six Premier League meetings.

However, both teams have scored in seven of their last ten competitive meetings and, although Chelsea are depleted defensively, they have been creating plenty of chances.

So although an odds-on shot, both teams to score looks a good bet given the attacking talent on show and that did click in Arsenal’s league games with Manchester United and Tottenham earlier in the campaign.

The Gunners may have won their opening three away fixtures but they have come against soft opposition and it is worth noting that they failed to prevail in four of their final five outings on the road last term.

With that in mind, a 2-2 draw, which has the scoreline in each of Arsenal’s two draws with Fulham and Spurs this season, could be the approach for correct-score punters to take.
