Arsenal v Chelsea Betting Preview: Latest odds, team news, tips and predictions

The Gunners held Conte's men to a goalless draw in the reverse encounter, and Al Hain-Cole thinks goals could be few and far between at the Emirates

Arsenal will be hoping to gain ground on Chelsea when the sides come face-to-face at the Emirates Stadium in Wednesday’s big Premier League clash.

With just two wins to their name in the last seven league fixtures, Arsene Wenger’s men are currently seven points adrift of their third-placed London rivals in sixth position.

Match Odds

However, having run out 3-0 winners when the sides met at this ground last season, the Gunners are available at 9/5 (2.80) with dabblebet to close the gap with a high profile victory in this one.

No away side has won more games at this stadium than the Blues, who can be backed at 8/5 (2.60) to come out on top for the sixth time here.

The sides shared a 0-0 draw when they met at Stamford Bridge back in September, and you can get odds of 12/5 (3.40) on them cancelling each other out once again on this occasion.

Clean sheets

That goalless stalemate marked only the second time in 19 league visits that the Gunners had kept a clean sheet in West London, and the first since way back in 2005.

Having also kept them at bay in the previous encounter at this stadium last campaign, the hosts should feel fairly confident of putting up some strong resistance once again considering they have kept 10 clean sheets in their last 15 league matches in front of their own fans.

What’s more, Antonio Conte’s side have actually drawn a blank in two of their most recent three away matches in the league, failing to score against both Everton and West Ham.

Nevertheless, having gone four consecutive league matches without conceding, the guests will also back themselves to keep it tight at the back against an opposition they have shut out in seven of the last nine encounters.

Tips and Predictions

All in all, odds of 7/5 (2.40) seem generous on no more than one side finding the net in another tight encounter between Arsenal and Chelsea.
