Arsenal Preview & Betting Tips


David Lenton

Recommended Posts

We've got quite the game in prospect between Chelsea and Arsenal at the Bridge to kick off Super Sunday. Both teams, and managers, are feeling the heat and a win for either should could really kick start their campaign.

Chelsea come into this home fixture having only managed to win one of the last seven games they've played at the Bridge whilst Arsenal have lost only 3 of their previous 19 away fixtures in the Premier League.

The same fixture last season produced a 5-3 thriller in which Arsenal came out on top. Whilst I can see the same kind of high scoring game taking place this time around I'm not sure it's the Gunners who'll be walking away with all three points.

Form

Chelsea: WWLWD

Arsenal: WWWDL

Last Meeting

Arsenal 1-2 Chelsea - Premier League 29th September 2012

Previous Line Ups

Chelsea: Chech, Cole, Luiz, Cahill, Azpilicueta, Ramires, Lampard, Mata, Oscar, Hazard, Ba

Arsenal: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Diaby, Wilshere, Walcott, Coquelin, Giroud

Team News

Chelsea are still without Romeu who isnt expected back any time soon and Victor Moses is unavailable for selection currently on international duty in the African Nations with Nigeria. Neither would be considered a huge miss for Chelsea.

More importantly Ivanovic and John Terry both made the bench against Southampton in the week and both will face late fitness tests to determine their involvement against Arsenal.

Arsenal welcome Koscielny back into their side after his one match ban picked up against Man City but are still without Arteta and Rosicky who both have calf injuries. Gervinho is also unavailable due to the African Nations.

Chelsea v Arsenal Betting Tips

I managed to nail my over 3.5 goals tip in the previous game against Southampton and Chelsea to win both halves was looking good until they capitulated in the second 45 of the match. Here are my tips for this week:

Over/Under 3.5 Goals Given that Chelsea have been so rocky at the back lately and their home form has been so poor Im sticking with my over 3.5 goals prediction for this fixture. If last year is anything to go by then it could easily be way over 3.5.

Also factored into this tip is the quality goalscoring form of new signing Demba Ba who clearly has what it takes to get the best of the Arsenal defence, scoring a brace last time he faced them in a black and white jersey. Best price on this is 7/4 with BetVictor.

Demba Ba To Score Anytime: My second Chelsea v Arsenal betting tip is for Demba Ba to score anytime during the match. Currently the best odds youll find on this are at evens with Boylesports.

Ba will certainly feature for Chelsea in this game and really does look the real deal. We know he can score against Arsenal and every time hes played in a blue shirt so far this season hes looked seriously dangerous.

Tips Summary

- Over 3.5 goals priced best with BetVictor at 7/4

- Demba Ba to score anytime during the match at evens with Boylesports

Pretty sure Iva was not injured, mate. He was just rested against Southampton.
