Chelsea V Arsenal 13:30 Kick Off
Available on Sky Sports 1 HD
Chelsea are 9 points clear of joint second place Tottenham and Arsenal and the gunners will be looking to close the gap tomorrow on their trip to Stamford Bridge.
Last trip out Chelsea earned a draw against Liverpool in a match that could have gone either way; David Luiz beautiful struck 25th minute free kick found Mignolet unready and put Chelsea ahead Liverpool equalised in the 57th minute through a Wijnaldum header off a deflected cross. Things got tense when referee Clattenburg point at the spot in 75th minute and when Costa stepped up it seemed all but over, fortunately for the Reds Mignolet redeemed himself with a great save and denied Chelsea a further 2 point lead at the top of the table.
Chelsea have an impeccable home record this season having won every home game with the exception to a 2 – 1 to Liverpool back in September, these wins include victories over Spurs and a 4 – 0 demolition of Man Utd.
Arsenal beat Chelsea in a convincing 3 – 0 win at the Emirates stadium last time they both met on 24th September and have already had 7 games in 2017 bagging 5 wins, a draw and a disappointing 2 – 1 home loss to Watford last Tuesday. So they’ll being going into this tie looking to rectify that and take the game to Chelsea but manager Arsene Wenger is still serving his 4 match ban and it is believed he will be somewhere in the East Stand for the match.
Both Chelsea’s Costa and Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez are joint Premier League top scorers with 15 goals a piece and only Liverpool have more goals than these two sides this season, so you’re looking at Over 2.5 total goals it’s currently best priced @10/11 with Bet Fred and Bet Victor.
Chelsea to win are currently best price of even money with newly formed Bet Stars but you can get Arsenal win @16/5 with Boyle Sports, Bet Victor and William Hill.
Personally I’m looking at the Match Result And Both Teams To Score market for Chelsea to win with both teams to score best priced @3/1 with William Hill.
