betting tip & odds comparison 21/01/20 Chelsea FC - Arsenal FC

Betting Tip for matchday 24 of the 2019/2020 Premier League between Chelsea FC and Arsenal FC. The game will be played at Stamford Bridge on the 21.01.2020 at 21:15.

Chelsea - Arsenal

Just a few weeks after the reverse fixture at the Emirates, Chelsea host Arsenal at Stamford Bridge in the midweek matchday 24 EPL fixture. In the last meeting between the two sides, Chelsea won thanks to a late Tammy Abraham goal. After disappointing results in the last match, both sides will be keen to get back to winning ways. We review both teams’ chances, possible line ups and provide a betting review of this rivalry.

Chelsea

Despite losing 1-0 in their last match at St. James’ Park, Chelsea remain in pole position to clinch the last Champions League spot, thanks in no part to the inconsistencies of the other teams around them on the table. The Blues currently occupy the 4th spot on the table, miles behind Liverpool, Manchester City and Leicester City; they are five points ahead of fifth-placed Manchester United and 10 points ahead of their opponents on Thursday. In their previous 23 matches, Frank Lampard’s men have earned 39 points with 12 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses (the most out of the top seven teams on the EPL table).

With upcoming matches against Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur on the horizon after their FA Cup clash against Hull, Chelsea will be keen to get all three points on Tuesday to at least give them a buffer for those matches. Going by their current home form though, that may be easier said than done, as the Blues have lost three of their last five home games at the Bridge. In the eleven games they’ve played at home, Chelsea have won only five and dropped points in the remaining six – four losses and two draws. In those eleven home matches, they have only scored fourteen goals and conceded ten goals.

Arsenal

Despite hiring Arteta, Arsenal’s results have not really improved; the only win they’ve enjoyed under the Spanish manager is the 2-0 victory over Manchester United at the Emirates. The Gunners seem to be stuck in a rut where they can’t seem to convert draws into wins. They’ve drawn almost half (11) of their 23 matches this season. If they could only have converted one or two of those draws into wins, then they would definitely be much higher on the table. Against a team they have such a bad away record at, their chances of adding to the win column on the EPL table seem slim.

Mikel Arteta’s men warmed up for this short trip to London with a 1-1 draw against Sheffield United at the Emirates; a match they led before succumbing to a deflected goal. The Gunners took the lead thanks to Martinelli. Chelsea will have to be wary of the young Brazilian, who is proving to have a knack for scoring goals. In the absence of Aubameyang and the continued impotence of Lacazette in front of the goal, he is the goal threat. Arsenal’s away form in the league leaves a lot to be desired. The North London club have only earned 12 points in 11 away matches, registering 2 wins, 6 draws, and 3 losses. They have, however, drawn their last three away matches at Everton, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace.

Chelsea vs Arsenal Betting Tips and Predictions

At Stamford Bridge, Chelsea have been dominant against Arsenal, winning 9 of the last 12 meetings. The last time Arsenal won away at Chelsea was over nine years ago. Considering that their home form has been poor of late, losing three of their last four matches, the Blues winning is not a given. In the same breath, you cannot overlook Arsenal’s poor away record this season, and at the Bridge. The Gunners have drawn their last three away matches, and a draw seems the most likely result. In terms of goals, Mikel Arteta’s men have only kept two clean sheets in their last fifteen matches. Even at that, their recent games have featured less than 2.5 goals. The Gunners have recorded less than 2.5 goals in four of their last five matches, while there have been less than 2.5 goals in three of Chelsea’s last five games. This points to a low-scoring affair. Check 1xbet for the highest odds. For the less than 2.5 goals option you get 1.70. For information on 1xbet take a look at our 1xbet review.
