Arsenal – Chelsea Betting Tip, Prediction & Odds (2.5.2023) 

While Chelsea are having a disastrous season, Arsenal are fighting for the Premier League title. However, the Gunners have mightily struggled over the last few weeks, so they desperately need a win over the Blues. 

Arsenal vs. Chelsea: Initial Situation 

Arsenal are topping the Premier League at the moment. The Gunners (W23, D6, L4; 78:38 goal difference) are a couple of points ahead of Manchester City, but the Citizens have two games in hand on the Arsenal. On the other side, Chelsea are sitting at the 11th spot with 39 points (W10, D9, L13) and a 30:35 goal difference, ten points above the relegation zone and 14 points behind the Europa Conference League qualification spot. 

Arsenal Stats & Form

The Gunners are winless in four straight Premier League matches. After tallying three consecutive stalemates against Liverpool 2-2, West Ham 2-2, and Southampton 3-3, the Gunners suffered a heavy 4-1 defeat to Manchester City on the road this past Wednesday. Arsenal didn’t stand a chance against the Citizens, who had a 3-0 lead after 54 minutes of play. 

Gabriel Martinelli is Arsenal’s leading scorer with 15 goals in 43 appearances in all competitions this season. Bukayo Saka has accounted for 14 goals and 11 assists across 43 matches, while Martin Odegaard has recorded 12 goals and eight dishes in 40 apps this term. The Gunners are without right-back Takehiro Tomiyasu (knee) and midfielder Mohamed Elneny (knee). Centre-back William Saliba has missed the last six matches due to a back injury and is doubtful to play against Chelsea.

Chelsea Stats & Form

The Blues have dropped five straight games in all competitions. During that stretch, Chelsea have suffered three defeats in the Premier League (Wolves 1-0, Brighton 2-1, and Brentford 2-0) along with a couple of 2-0 losses to Real Madrid in the Champions League quarterfinal. In their previous 13 outings away from home, the Blues have registered nine losses, three draws, and just one victory. 

Chelsea have only scored one goal in their last seven matches overall. Kai Havertz is their top scorer with nine goals in 2022-23, while Mason Mount is the team’s best assist-maker with six dishes. Both Havertz and Mount missed Wednesday’s clash against Brentford due to injuries and are questionable to play against Arsenal.

Arsenal – Chelsea: Head-to-Head

Arsenal have won three straight matches against Chelsea, and in their last eight encounters with the Blues, the Gunners have recorded six wins and two losses. In their first meeting of the season, Arsenal beat Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge. 

Arsenal – Chelsea Odds

The bookmakers favor Arsenal over Chelsea, and Unibet Sportsbook offers the best odds at the moment (1.70). Both Teams to Score YES pays 1.80 at bet365 Sportsbook which is surprising given Chelsea’s struggle to find the back of the net, while Over 2.5 Goals sits at 1.85 at BetVictor Sportsbook. 


Betting tip and prediction: Arsenal – Chelsea (2.5.2023)

Arsenal shouldn’t have any problems beating the slumping Chelsea team. The only thing I’m worried about is pressure because victory is a must for the Gunners. Also, Arsenal’s defense has struggled without William Saliba in the starting eleven, so I’m backing the Gunners to score at least two goals in this match. The Blues have allowed two goals in four straight matches and will struggle to contain the Gunners’ prolific frontline.
