Chelsea vs Arsenal Preview and Prediction 2021

Chelsea vs Arsenal predictions for Wednesday’s Premier League contest at Stamford Bridge. In-form Chelsea are favourites to claim three points against London rivals Arsenal. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.

Chelsea have lost only two of their 25 matches since Thomas Tuchel’s appointment.

Chelsea have kept seven clean sheets in their last eight Premier League home games.

Seven of Chelsea’s 18 wins in the league this season have been by a two-goal margin.

Both teams not to score was a winning bet in seven of Chelsea’s last eight Premier League home games.

Chelsea in the groove

Chelsea delayed Manchester City’s title celebrations and strengthened their own hand in the race for a top-four finish on Saturday when they came from behind to beat the Citizens at the Etihad Stadium and with the wind in their sails, the Blues are favourites to breeze past Arsenal on Wednesday.

Thomas Tuchel has seen his charges lose only two out of 25 assignments since his appointment in January and a string of impressive recent displays in a series of showpiece fixtures seems to have pushed Chelsea’s confidence to new, even higher levels.

The Blues continue to look superb in defence and on Wednesday they will be targeting their eighth clean sheet in nine Premier League home games under Tuchel’s instruction.

Gunners send Baggies packing

Arsenal warmed up for their London derby with Chelsea by relegating WBA and Sam Allardyce at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday thanks to a routine 3-1 victory.

First Premier League goals of the season either side of a sumptuous Pepe strike for Emile Smith-Rowe and Willian pocketed the points for the Gunners who ended a six-match winless run on their own patch with their timely triumph.

Arsenal have fared much better on the road, though their five-game unbeaten run on their travels could end with a thump on Wednesday.

Stick with in-form Chelsea

A win for Chelsea over London rivals Arsenal on Wednesday evening would see them all but officially home and hosed in the top-four, and the Blues are worth backing to get the job done against the misfiring Gunners.

Thomas Tuchel’s men are playing with a real swagger thanks to recent wins over Real Madrid, West Ham and Manchester City (twice), and the Blues are priced generously to maintain their momentum at Arsenal’s expense this week.

The Gunners’ attacking play has all too often looked clunky and unimaginative under Mikel Arteta, and with the football in the final third grinding instead of gliding, Arsenal could struggle to penetrate Chelsea’s rock-solid defence.

With that considered, our 2-0 correct score prediction tips the hosts to secure a clean sheet and to notch a brace for the fourth fixture on the spin.

Chelsea injuries and team news

Mateo Kovacic is nearing a return and could make the squad for Wednesday’s game. Andreas Christensen picked up a hamstring strain against Man City and is a major doubt however.

Arsenal injures and team news

David Luiz and Pablo Mari could rejoin training this week, though the Chelsea game might come too soon for both. Granit Xhaka is expected to miss out further up the pitch with a groin complaint.
