Arsenal vs Chelsea Betting Pick
This game will be played at Stamford Bridge at 7:00 AM ET on Sunday, November 6, 2022.
Why Bet On Arsenal:
✅ Arsenal have lost just once this season, winning ten out of their 12 matches as the best club in the Prem.
✅ Manager Mikel Arteta has an outstanding record at Stamford Bridge. The Gunners boss has guided the club to away wins in their last two away matches against Chelsea in the Premier League.
✅ Arsenal has scored 13 more goals than Chelsea this season. The Gunners +19 goal differential this season also dwarfs Chelsea’s +2 GD.
The Gunners had a productive week in the lead up to facing Chelsea. After beating Nottingham Forest 5-0 last weekend, Kieran Tierney’s goal gave Arsenal a 1-0 win over FC Zurich to top their Europa League group.
Tierney’s goal was a big win as Arsenal’s win over FC Zurich provided them a bye in the first Europa League knockout round. Arsenal won’t have to face an eliminated Champions League opponent and save themselves two matches that could prove crucial in their longterm quest to potentially win the league.
Competing in the Europa League gives the Gunners an immediate disadvantage with less rest than Chelsea. The hosts enjoyed 24 extra hours worth of rest that Arsenal will have to overcome.
Bukayo Saka is expected to travel with the club to Stamford Bridge and could feature in the Starting XI or as a substitute on Sunday. Saka was feared to be potentially out for the World Cup after an ankle injury forced him out against Nottingham but reportedly only missed two training sessions.
Chelsea’s last league match was a disaster as manager Graham Potter’s return to Brighton ended in a 4-1 romping for the hosts. Potter and Chelsea were humbled in what was their first loss under their latest manager, falling behind 3-0 in the first half.
The blues rebounded in Europe, getting over their embarrassment against Brighton with a well earned result against Dinamo Zagreb. Chelsea fell behind in the seventh minute before Raheem Sterling and Denis Zakaria quickly replied to give the Londoners a 2-1 win. The win secured Chelsea top spot in Group E, edging AC Milan with 13 points.
Getting a win over Arsenal is crucial to any plans of Chelsea making a comeback to competing for the league title. Should the hosts lose to the Gunners, they will fall 13 points out of first place. A near death sentence should Potter and his men fail to get a result against the league leaders.
