Arsenal and Chelsea will lock horns this weekend for a massive London derby as both London sides look to take control in the title race.
Arsenal have started the season far better than many would have expected them to. They are playing well at home after a slightly slow start and they are picking up points on the road against some of the biggest sides. They know they have to keep beating the bigger sides in the league this season if they are going to have a shot at the title. Arsenal are 13/10 with most bookies for the win.
Chelsea have been the early pace setters in the Premier League and they look as though they could be serious title contenders if they can keep it up. They look very balanced and will be a big threat throughout the season as long as they avoid injuries to key players in the attack. Pinnacle offer the best price on Chelsea winning the game at 22/9.
Arsenal will have a lot of the ball in this match and how they use it will decide the game. If they can get their most influential players in possession then it’s difficult to see past them not winning the match. They create a lot of chances, it’s just a case of how lethal they are in the attack. Arsenal look good to win this match 2-1 at odds of 17/2 with Stan James.
Chelsea pride themselves on having a brilliant defence and leading from the back. They will back themselves to see out any spell of pressure that Arsenal put together and will focus on the counter attack during these periods. They have many talented players who can all create chances and score goals when they are allowed to build pressure themselves. Chelsea to steal the match 1-0 is 10s with Bet365.
Santi Cazorla is a great bet to score the first goal of the game for Arsenal because he is involved in every attack. He pops up in the key areas which means that if he can find some space, he’ll be in a great position to get a shot away on goal and put his side in control. Cazorla has been very effective in his short spell at Arsenal and will want to maintain this momentum.
Juan Mata has been quiet at the start of this season but there is only so long a player as good as him can go without being involved. Mata is one of the play makers who makes everything in the side tick. Mata will pop up all over the pitch looking to link up the play and get involved in attacks. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see him score the first goal of the game as he also takes a lot of the set pieces in dangerous positions for the team.
