Chelsea vs Arsenal Prediction and Betting Tips

Chelsea vs Arsenal – Premier League :This Saturday afternoon in Stamford Bridge, Chelsea hosts Arsenal
On a match counting towards the 2nd round of the Premier League.
Chelsea finished in 5th place of the Premier League with 70 points conquered, thanks to a record of 21 victories, 7 draws and 10 losses.
On the goals’ chapter, they counted with 62 goals scored and 38 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2.6 goals per match. Their record at home was the most productive, but their performance away from home wasn’t much worse.
The Blues have played 4 friendly matches, recording 3 draws and 1 victory.
The side led by Sarri has also already played 2 official encounters, losing the Super Cup to Man City (2-0) and starting off the league with a victory at Huddersfield (3-0).
Arsenal finished in 6th place of the league table with 63 points conquered, thanks to a record of 19 victories, 6 draws and 13 losses.
In terms of goals, they counted with 74 goals scored and 51 goals conceded, presenting an average of 3.3 goals per match.
Their record away from home isn’t as strong as when they play at the Emirates.
Unai Emery’s side has already played 5 friendly matches against strong opponents like PSG, Atlético de Madrid, Chelsea or Lazio, not suffering any loss in regulation.
On their first official matches, Arsenal started off on the worst possible fashion in the Premier League, with a loss at home against the champions Man City by 2-0.
Chelsea vs Arsenal – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The arrival of Sarri came to bring some positives, but naturally they are still not working collectively as their manager wants.
That was visible on the matches they’ve already played on the pre-season and Super Cup against better teams and that offer a different kind of problems as Man City, Arsenal or Inter, conceding goals in all of them.
I believe that this Saturday won’t be any different, although I also expect the Blues to score, not only because they play in front of their own fans,
but also because they are facing the Gunners that have conceded goals in 4 of the 6 matches they’ve already played since the start of the pre-season.
That way, it would be a surprise not to see goals from the both sides on this London derby.
