Arsenal vs Chelsea Prediction & Betting tips
A London derby Sunday afternoon in the Premier League: the Arsenal of Mikel Arteta is visited by Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium. In his first game, Arteta ran into a loss of points with a hit-and-hit Arsenal, but Chelsea is also performing very mixed this season.
The Arsenal players did not enjoy Christmas dinner last Wednesday and Thursday. Arsenal is not performing this season and Arteta has to change that in the coming months. The 37-year-old Arteta has been Pep Guardiola’s right-hand man at Manchester City in recent years and therefore undoubtedly knows how to put good football in a team. The only question is: can Arteta manage to bring good football to the table with some lesser players – because those are those from Arsenal in general -?
There was not much to see on Boxing Day. Arteta played 1-1 at the AFC Bournemouth in his first game in the service of The Gunners. At the Vitality Stadium, Arsenal even trailed 1-0 in the first half, but with a bit of luck Pierre-Emerick made Aubameyang the equalizer after just over an hour of football. So that was it and Arsenal has not won four games in a row anymore. In-house, the series of The Gunners is even worse: Arsenal lost the last three home games and the three matches before that all ended in a draw. The last home win of Arsenal dates from October 24 when the Portuguese Vitória Guimarães was with some luck beaten 3-2 in the Europa League. Moreover, Arsenal won only one of the last ten league games and The Gunners can only successfully close this season by winning the Europa League and qualifying for the Champions League. That will no longer work through the Premier League.
It is not just bad news at Arsenal. No, it is also not running at Chelsea this season. Nevertheless, Chelsea’s expectations are less high than those of Arsenal, and that has everything to do with the fact that Frank Lampard, a young coach, was saddled last summer with mostly talents and was not allowed to buy new players due to a transfer ban. Nevertheless, with Chelsea, Lampard can still hope for Champions League qualification via the Premier League. Chelsea’s biggest competitors are currently Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The last seven games of Chelsea resulted in The Blues having four defeats and three wins. A defeat of Chelsea was alternated with a victory in the next game and as a result, The Blues have lost a lot of points in recent weeks. An example of this volatility: Chelsea last Sunday won 0-2 against Tottenham Hotspur and went down on its own home against Southampton on Boxing Day with the same figures. Also at Chelsea there is no way to tie this season, but that is inherent in working with a relatively young and inexperienced selection. Chelsea has not won five games in a row at the Emirates Stadium, but against this Arsenal anything is possible for The Blues at the moment.
