Chelsea v Arsenal Betting: Hosts to give Wenger's men the blues

Last updated
Having struggled on the road in the league recently, Al Hain-Cole is expecting the Gunners to fall to yet another defeat at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea will be out for revenge when they welcome Arsenal to Stamford Bridge for Sunday's Premier League clash.

Having lost out to this opposition in last season's FA Cup final before falling to another defeat in the Community Shield at the beginning of August, Antonio Conte's men are available at 4/5 (1.80) with dabblebet to make amends by coming out on top here.

The Gunners bounced back from a 4-0 thrashing at Liverpool by brushing Bournemouth aside 3-0 last weekend, and are priced at 16/5 (4.20) to boost morale even further with a high profile victory in this one.

Penalties were required to separate the sides after a 1-1 draw in the Community Shield clash, and you can get odds of 3/1 (4.00) on them cancelling each other out once again.

That shootout victory at Wembley was actually the third time in four encounters that Arsene Wenger's men had got the better of their London rivals over the last year, however, each of those victories has been achieved away from Stamford Bridge - a ground that has not proved a happy hunting ground for the guests in recent seasons.

Robin Van Persie scored a hat-trick the last time Wenger's men left West London with anything to cheer about, recording an exciting 5-3 victory over Andre Villas-Boas' struggling team back in October 2011.

Since then, the Blues have won all five of the subsequent encounters at Stamford Bridge, scoring 15 goals and conceding just two.

Having started the season by losing both of their opening two away matches to make it seven defeats in 10 on the road in the league, it is hard to see Arsenal putting an end to their miserable run at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Instead, those 4/5 (1.80) odds actually look rather generous on Chelsea securing their 19th victory in 22 Premier League home matches under Conte's management.
