Chelsea vs Arsenal match preview

Arsenal need to win to have any genuine chance of sneaking into European football next season. Chelsea are currently in 3rd and 1 more win will surely be enough for them to qualify for the competition next season, though Arsenal will be hoping that they have 1 eye on winning the Champions League this season when they play Man City In the final later this month.

Chelsea have scored in 5 of their last 6 league games and they scored an average of 1.83 goals per game in those 6 games. Chelsea have kept 7 clean sheets in their last 10 league games. Arsenal have scored in 8 of their last 10 league games and they scored an average of 1.80 goals per game in those 10 games. Arsenal have conceded in 12 of their last 14 league games and they conceded an average of 1.28 goals per game in those games. 

The only doubt with goals is will Arsenal score? Chelsea have been rock solid at the back in recent games, but with an FA Cup final and Champions League final both coming up, you feel they will have to rotate their squad and that could help Arsenal. Also the fact Arsenal really have nothing to lose means they should go for the win to try and claw their way back into the European picture, and get some bragging rights. 

Arsenal average 7 corners per game in their last 5 league games. Chelsea have seen a huge drop in corners in recent games. In their last 4 league games Chelsea have not taken more than 2 corners in any of them and they average just 1.25 corners per game in those 4 games. So Chelsea look a risky bet on corners. There is still a good chance both teams take at least 3 corners as this should be an attacking game, but the stats suggest Chelsea are a team to be wary of right now if you are backing them from a corners angle. 

Chelsea only average 0.88 yellow cards per game in their last 9 league games and Arsenal have been given exactly 1 yellow card in 9 of their last 10 league games. The stats suggest it’s not a game for cards. It would be no surprise to see both teams pick up at least 1 card, just its worth remembering that these fixtures are not what they used to be, especially with no crowd. Also it’s unlikely Chelsea players will be going flying into 50/50 challenges as they don’t want to pick up an injury at a crucial part of the season.

So a tricky game to weigh up, card and corners both have reasons to be careful and the best bets look to be based around goals. The best bets in this game are

Over 1.5 goals

Both teams to score
