The match is over.
Score: 2-0.

The Premier League continues this weekend with the standout match of the weekend coming in North London in a clash between two top four hopefuls – Arsenal and Chelsea. The visitors are narrow favourites to win but many people may tip a draw in this one.

Predictions

This is a crucial game in the race for the Champions League places with Chelsea, in fourth, sitting six points clear of fifth-placed Arsenal.

The Gunners are badly out of form, they have won just three of their most recent eight league games and only five of their last 13.

That run of results has seen Manchester United draw level with them in the standings and created a gap to the top four above them.

Chelsea’s form has been inconsistent too but they have won five of their last seven league matches and are on course to secure a Champions League place for next season.

The visitors will be favourites to continue their favourable run of form despite not possessing home advantage, as they have superior form and quality over Arsenal.

The away side are favourites to win this game although it may not be that straightforward, and a 1-1 draw may be the most likely outcome.

Betting Tips

Chelsea have failed to score in three of their last seven matches in all competition while they have kept three clean sheets in their last five. Arsenal could not find the net in their recent defeat against West Ham United. These are two teams who are likely to approach this game with an element of caution and there is a real chance that one or both will not score.

Linked to the above prediction, this is among the best online betting odds available for this round of matches. There hasn’t been more than three goals in any of Chelsea’s last 12 domestic matches and they are typically low scoring affairs while Arsenal’s recent results against West Ham, Brighton and Huddersfield would also have fallen into this bracket.
