Arsenal vs Chelsea Betting Tips & Odds│22 AUGUST, 2021

Arsenal vs Chelsea, a classic confrontation of English soccer. Arsenal are going through a hard time, and Chelsea are going to defend their title, having spent €115 million on Romelu Lukaku. Will Chelsea succeed, or will Mikel Arteta stop them from achieving this goal once again?

Arsenal form

Arsenal threw away €147 million to get mid-table players: Ben White, Martin Ødegaard, Aaron Ramsdale. Whoever selected them have proven themselves incompetent. The first-round match against Brentford, which ended in a 0-2 defeat, showed how hopeless the Gunners are their lack of prospects at the same time. Their limit seems to be going down to the middle of the standings.

Chelsea form

Chelsea handled Crystal Palace gracefully, beating the opponent 3-0. What Chelsea can achieve with Romelu Lukaku on the team remains to be seen. His acquisition means that Timo Werner failed, scoring less goals than Anton Zabolotny. But Thomas Tuchel being the head coach levels out any weaknesses in the team, making the Blues one of the contenders for the title.

Injuries and suspensions

  • Arsenal: Gabriel, Partey, Lacazette, Runarsson, Nketiah, Aubameyang, Ødegaard;
  • Chelsea: Loftus-Cheek, Pulisic. Ziyech and Kante are questionable.

The London teams had 203 head-to-head encounters, Arsenal still ahead with a score of 79-65. Mikel Arteta managing Arsenal made it harder for Chelsea to handle the opponent. How else could one explain the fact that the Blues haven’t had a single win over the Gunners in their last 4 games? Last season, the first match at the Emirates Stadium ended in a 3-1 win for the hosts. The return leg at Stamford Bridge ended in another 1-0 win for Arsenal. In their last encounter, Thomas Tuchel was already coaching the Blues. He seems to have someone to work more with.

Key stats

  • Total Over 2.5 played out in the last 4 home games with Arsenal;
  • Total Over 2.5 played out in the last 3 games with Chelsea;
  • Chelsea failed to beat Arsenal in their last 4 head-to-head encounters.

Expert Betting Tips

The current Arsenal is even more hopeless than it used to be under Arsène Wenger and Unai Emery. Right now, the Gunners are an average team in the EPL in terms of their level and player selection. In turn, Chelsea are still among the top teams, seeming to have no plans to go down. That’s why it’s safe to believe in Chelsea’s victory. Moreover, bookmaker Parimatch offers odds of 1.80 for the Blues’ win. Pretty generous, so go for it.

Romelu Lukaku knows how to debut in the new clubs. He has proved it at Everton, Man United and Inter. He’ll do the same for Chelsea, as Arsenal's defense is ludicrous. Melbet offers odds of 1.995 for Lukaku to score a goal at any time.

And in conclusion, we believe that we will not see both teams score, as Chelsea knows how to play a balanced game. But we shouldn’t underestimate Arteta, too. Therefore, we recommend the bet on Both Teams To Score - No for 1.88 from Marathonbet.
