It’s the third meeting between both London giants in as many months and the stats favour Arsene Wenger’s side for this one.

Arsenal and Chelsea go head to head in the FA community Shield at the iconic Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners finished fifth in the previous season, thus failing to qualify for the Uefa Champions League for the first time in Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal tenure. They however lifted the FA Cup in May by beating Chelsea and are (3.10) with LionsBet to coast to victory again.

The Blues sealed a fifth Premier League title thanks to the genius of Antonio Conte. The former Juventus boss will however be pained that Wenger’s men denied his side from securing a domestic double. The same firm quotes Chelsea for a revenge win at odds of (2.15).


A draw at the end of 90 minutes is available at odds of (3.35).

The last three Community Shield games have been won by the previous season’s FA victors. With Arsenal taking honours in 2014 and 2015, they are quoted at (1.50) to avoid defeat.

Chelsea have lost their last three games in the season’s curtain raiser. This could play into the Gunners hands to find the opening goal of the game at odds of (2.15).
