Chelsea keep on going from strength to strength under Thomas Tuchel and get the nod to see off Arsenal in Wednesday’s Premier League showdown.
The Blues are firmly on course for a top-four finish and have powered through to FA Cup and Champions League finals in impressive fashion.
Tuchel has enough strength in depth to shuffle his pack for this contest and still make 7/10 for a home win a solid Chelsea vs Arsenal prediction.
A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds
Chelsea followed up a convincing 2-0 victory over Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge by battling for a 2-1 triumph at Manchester City in this competition.
The Blues were given a reprieve via Sergio Aguero’s awful penalty attempt when City were 1-0 ahead but capitalised fully on that let-off.
Hakim Ziyech levelled just after the hour mark and Marcos Alonso grabbed a stoppage-time winner as Chelsea followed up their FA Cup triumph over the Citizens.
Tuchel stated: “These wins, these big games, you need to be lucky, but the players did everything to force the luck on our side.
“It is a huge win, a big reaction and a fantastic team performance.”
Saturday’s FA Cup decider is a distraction but Chelsea have kept seven clean sheets from eight Premier League home matches under Tuchel and will be aiming for another clinical victory here.
Looking at the Chelsea vs Arsenal odds, we like 11/4 for a home win and under 2.5 goals in the game.
Last Chelsea line-up: Mendy, Rudiger, Alonso, Christensen, James, Azpilicueta, Kante, Pulisic, Ziyech, Gilmour, Werner.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Emile Smith Rowe, Nicolas Pepe and Willian were on target as the Gunners bounced back from a Europa League semi-final exit.
Mikel Arteta said: “It is always the best way to put a remedy to the pain that we had – to win the game, to score the three beautiful goals that we have done.
“I think when we conceded the goal, we looked nervy for a period but overall, not going through to the final, it is always very important to win.
“I think we have a huge responsibility to win every game we play when we represent this football club.
“Our attitude is a non-negotiable and right up to the end we have to try to win our matches and see what happens.”
However, Villarreal had previously shown how a well-drilled outfit with smart defensive players can contain the Gunners.
In what could be a tight tussle, let’s add 7/2 for Draw HT/Chelsea FT to our Chelsea vs Arsenal betting tips.
