Arsene Wenger will be renewing rivalry with the team he’s faced most so far in his tenure as Gunners boss on Wednesday

The first London derby of the New Year in the Premier League will see rivals Arsenal and Chelsea slug it out for bragging rights at the Emirates Stadium.

2017 ended for Arsene Wenger on a sour note as he was denied victory on his record 811th top-flight game with a draw against West Bromwich Albion.

The result leaves them in fifth place, five points behind Liverpool. They would want to start the New Year on a positive note and are quoted at (2.80) with Nairabet to win.

The Blues came off an impressive 5-0 win over Stoke City last Saturday which pushed them up to second spot. However with Manchester United beating Everton 2-0, Chelsea are third but will be back to second with another victory at odds of (2.55).

The reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge ended in a goalless draw and another stalemate is available at (3.55) with the same betting firm.

Arsenal won this fixture at this venue 3-0 last season but Chelsea remain the team tied with Manchester United to have claimed more victories at the Emirates which stands at five. Either team sealing a victory is priced at (1.35).

Before this triumph, the Gunners had failed to score in seven of their last nine games against the Blues. Bookies however predict that both teams will find the back of the net at odds of (1.60).

The opening goal could play an important role in the direction this game goes and Chelsea are the favoured side to do so at (1.90).

Alexis Sanchez has been in the transfer rumour mill as he has just six months left to run on his contract. The Chilean got the opener in the 3-0 win last term and is offered at (6.75) to score first in the match.
