Arsenal vs Chelsea predictions- Arsenal did what they’ve done far too often this season on Sunday when they were held to a 1-1 draw against a West Brom side who haven’t won a Premier League game since August. They were held by The Baggies until an 83rd minute own goal put them ahead, but a late and controversial penalty saw West Brom claim a point.
This makes it four wins and four draws in their last eight competitive matches, and leaves them in a disappointing 5th position in the Premier League with a three point deficit on the last of the top four spots.
Things have been even more difficult in league fixtures alone, where they have won just two of their last seven games. Admittedly their only loss in this period was that sensational 3-1 defeat against Manchester United, but The Gunners are dropping far too many needless points at the moment.
Chelsea, on the other hand, are in fine form. Their last outing was a 5-0 drubbing of Stoke on Saturday, a result which makes it five wins and one draw in their last six outings. This has seen The Blues rise to 2nd in the Premier League and make it to the League Cup semi-finals, so things are definitely looking up for Antonio Conte’s men.
Away from home they have struggled a bit though, winning just three of their last seven in the Premier League and only keeping three clean sheets in the process. Considering they are coming up against an Arsenal side who have scored in every home game this season their chances of keeping a clean sheet on Wednesday look very slim.
However, The Gunners did ship three against Liverpool in their last home match and have done the same against both Manchester United and Leicester this season. Their own chances of a clean sheet look slim too, so we could be in for a very neutral friendly game on Wednesday.
Six of the hosts’ ten home games this season have seen at least three goals this season, and Chelsea have also seen the same in their away matches. Given both teams’ attacking credentials backing Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score looks a great option, along with a 2-2 correct score predictions.
