Arsenal v Chelsea: Preview
Both teams are sitting on 10 points, and a win for either would give them a much needed boost up the table at this early stage of the competition.
Surprisingly, bookies offer Arsenal as favourites to win this clash, and you’ll find some great free bet offers on both teams’ performances, and also on the outcome of the game.
Even though Arsenal are the bookies favourites to win this game, Chelsea haven’t lost any of their last 9 Premier League games against The Gunners.
They also haven’t lost any of the last 6 at the Emirates, with 3 wins and 3 draws.
The last time Arsenal beat Chelsea was in last seasons Community Shield, when they walked away with a 1-0 victory. Even though Arsenal are favourites, it'll be a tough match.
In the lead up to the Saturday evening's game, we've taken a look at each teams form, the bookies offering best odds, and the free bet offers to claim for Arsenal v Chelsea.
Arsenal's Best Odds: 7/5
If you think Arsenal will take all 3 points from Chelsea on Saturday then William Hill offers the best odds on Arsene's men doing just that at 7/5.
Arsene Wenger’s men are currently holding 4th place after their first 5 games of the season.
They may have had a shaky start to their Premier League campaign, but it looks as it Arsenal have finally returned to form, taking yet another victory against Hull in last weekend’s game.
Arsenal have a pretty poor record against Chelsea, but given their form of late, it’s easy to see why bookies offer the best odds on them winning.
It won’t necessarily be an easy game, but if they can play as well as they have been, they could easily take a full 3 points.
Unfortunately The Gunners have a bit of an injury list, with Aaron Ramsey, Danny Welbeck, Giroud, Jenkinson and Mertesacker all injured.
Things may change before kick off, and Wenger is optimistic that Giroud and Ramsey will be back in the line up for Saturday’s game.
Chelsea's Best Odds: 21/10
If you think Chelsea will manage to beat Arsenal at The Emirates on Saturday evening, then PaddyPower offers punters the best odds on an away win at 21/10.
PaddyPower also offer new account holders a 'bet £10, get £30 in free bets' deal - which is a massive 300% bonus on the first bet you place with Ireland's best bookie.
Chelsea are currently sitting in 5th place in the Premier League table, with the same points as Arsenal, however they’re just behind on goal difference.
Conte’s men may have started the season well, winning their first 3 games, but they’ve struggled in their last 2 outings against Swansea and Liverpool.
While they haven’t played amazingly of late, it’s still surprising that they’re the underdogs for this game, given their epic record against Arsenal.
It won’t be a walk in the park for Chelsea, but if they can pull it together on the day, they could easily secure another win over Arsenal and return to a top 4 spot.
Luckily there aren’t too many injury concerns ahead of Saturday’s game.
Van Ginkel and Zouma have been ruled out of the line up, but it looks as if John Terry will be back in time for this game, which could have a massive impact on their performance!
Odds On A Draw: 5/2
Two out of the last six Premier League games between these two teams have ended in draws, and so a draw at The Emirates could be a realistic outcome.
If you’re betting on Arsenal v Chelsea ending in a draw, SkyBet offers the best odds at 5/2 as well as a generous 'bet £5, get £20' deal for new members.
