Saturday’s early kick off sees a heavyweight clash at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea take on Arsenal and Chelsea look value odds to secure victory at home with Hills pricing them a favourable 21/20. The Blues come into this clash nine points clear at the surface of the Premier League after drawing 1-1 with Liverpool on Tuesday night, where Arsenal and Spurs failed to capitalise on the draw.
Antonio Conte would’ve been pleased with the outcome never the less. Arsenal missed the opportunity to close the gap on the leaders after suffering a disappointing loss against Watford. The Gunners went down to an embarrassing 2-1 defeat at the Emirates which again raised the pressure on Arsene Wenger from the Arsenal faithful.
It’s been a spectacular season for everyone involved within the Chelsea camp and they’re looking a shoo-in for the Premier League title. The Blues have been in top spot for the majority of the campaign and their looking like a completely different side that finished way down in tenth position last term. Antonio Conte has rejuvenated the club, especially when he switched up the tactics to suit his own preferred needs back when Chelsea succumbed to an embarrassing 3-0 loss to Arsenal earlier this season.
But they didn’t have things all their own way in their last outing when they made the trip to Merseyside to face Liverpool. The Reds more than matched Chelsea for the ninety minutes and they played out a pulsating 1-1 draw, which benefited Chelsea still as Arsenal and Tottenham dropped points around them.
This game could have huge implications in the title race and fans are expecting a full blooded affair in this big London derby. Chelsea come into this clash with the advantage, being nine points above The Gunners in top spot and they’ve been formidable at home – winning their last eight. Arsenal have lost two of their last four away league games and another defeat here could have a fatal effect on their title hopes. Arsene Wenger is desperate for a result here but I can’t see it coming.
I can see a low scoring affair here with both sides playing out an extremely cagey and tactical match as no one wants to lose this match, especially The Gunners as it will end all of any potential title hopes. https://mobile.bet365.com/ offer a good value price of EVENS for UNDER 2.5 Match Goals.
