Arsenal Vs Chelsea Prediction, Odds And Team News

Arsenal will host Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium in a tantalising London derby on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners were well below par in their season opener after they were humiliated by newly-promoted Brentford in a damning 2-0 defeat.

Chelsea, on the other hand, comfortably beat fellow Londoners Crystal Palace and will now look for revenge over the Gunners after Mikel Arteta's side completed a league double over them last season.

After Arsenal experienced very little joy against the Bees, we reckon a similar story is more than likely to follow against the champions of Europe.


Ahead of the game, our tipster Robert Mann takes a look at some of the best bets from Arsenal vs Chelsea to get your teeth stuck into.

Arsenal vs Chelsea betting tips & predictions

Arsenal are 19/5 to win, with Chelsea priced at 8/11 to come away with the victory. A draw is priced at 13/5.

Prediction: 0-3 (12/1)

To win to nil: Chelsea (7/4)

Since taking over as manager in January, Thomas Tuchel has transformed Chelsea's fortunes, winning both the Champions League and Super Cup.

The Blues may have lost this fixture 3-0 last season under Frank Lampard, however, Tuchel has turned the side into a different breed and should exact revenge for that defeat.

To score anytime: Romelu Lukaku (1/1)

Romelu Lukaku has scored a staggering 113 Premier League goals to date - and that tally looks to increase in a Chelsea side expected to create plenty of chance for him.

The Belgian powerhouse will, undoubtably, give the Blues the reliable goalscorer that they have been missing and is more than likely to put the Arsenal defence to the test this afternoon.

To be carded: Granit Xhaka (7/5)

Over the past four seasons, Granit Xhaka has received 37 yellow cards in the Premier League and has been booked three times against Chelsea since joining the Gunners.

Interestingly, Paul Tierney - the referee for the fixture - has booked Xhaka twice in the last three seasons - and we're backing for the Swiss midfield maestro to see yellow again today.

Arsenal team news

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette both missed the trip to Brentford due to illness and Arteta has confirmed that the duo will be sidelined yet again.

The Gunners also remain without Gabriel MahalhaesThomas Partey and Eddie Nketiah through injury, while Martin Odegaard has arrived from Real Madrid on a permanent basis, but will not feature just yet due to visa issues.


Chelsea team news

Lukaku, Chelsea's club-record signing, has declared himself fit to face Arsenal, with the only question mark over whether he will start or come off the bench for his second debut for the Blues.

Hakim Ziyech also has a chance of returning from a shoulder problem here, while Christian Pulisic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek have both tested positive for coronavirus.
