Arsene Wenger’s side will be gunning for their first win over Roman Army in two years as both teams meet in a fourth round clash of the Capital One Cup
Arsenal welcome Jose Mourinho’s men to the Emirates Stadium in Tuesdays’ night Capital One Cup fourth round encounter as both teams aim to move a step closer towards reaching the grand finale.
The Gunners bounced back from their Champions League loss against Borussia Dortmund to a comfortable win at Crystal Palace on Saturday. Ladbrokes prices a home win at 13/8 (2.62) considering the fact that have won nine of their last 10 home League Cup ties.
Jose Mourinho’s team will hope to secure another win 48 hours after a dramatic win against Manchester City. Chelsea is available at 13/8 (2.62) to breeze past the hosts, a result which will be a repeat of the 2007 League Cup final.
The draw is a 23/10 (3.30) place with the same firm.
In Chelsea’s last 23 encounters with Arsenal in all competitions, they have won 13 times and losing out on four occasions. It will be recalled that the Blues won the League Cup twice in Jose Mourinho's first spell in charge while the trophy remains a wild goose chase for Wenger who has never won the competition. You can back the Blues to win either half at 3/4 (1.75).
Arsenal have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last eight matches in this competition, a sequence that began with defeat to Birmingham in the 2011 final wonder the Emirates giants are at long odds of 13/5 (3.60) to keep a clean slate against an impressive Roman Army that have won their last three away games in all competitions.
Both teams to score is offered at 4/7 (1.57) and while it is not the biggest price in the world it is well worthy of consideration.
