Chelsea vs Arsenal Premier League Betting Tips

Premier League: Chelsea vs Arsenal

Stamford Bridge, London, United Kingdom.

Tuesday 21st January. 

Kick-off: 20:15 (UK).

English Premier League.

TV: BT Sport 1 (UK).

The highlight of the midweek Premier League games sees Chelsea at home to Arsenal. 

A quick recovery?

Chelsea enter this match after a tough last-minute loss to Newcastle on Saturday night. They were the better team in that game, but didn't have a killer instinct in front of goal; something that has been the bane of their season. To amend that, they will hope to add a few players in the January transfer window after their transfer ban was reduced. If you think Chelsea can make a quick recovery from their weekend defeat and triumph against Arsenal, they are currently at 3/4 to win.

The Blues are still in a strong position to make next season's Champions League, but that’s mainly due to their usual league rivals not playing very well.

Draw specialists

Arsenal are the draw specialists of the league with 11 so far in the season, and they’ve racked up four draws in six games under their new manager Mikel Arteta.

They need to start converting those draws into wins if they are to have any chance of climbing the table and playing European football next season.

They are still in the FA Cup and the Europa League; so their priorities will lie there for the remainder of the season.

The Gunners will hope to make a few additions to their squad during the January transfer window after their disastrous start to the season. The midfield and defence are their leading causes for concern.

Match preview

It has only been a few weeks since the last time these two played. Chelsea were lucky to escape with a win at the Emirates after Arsenal had dominated much of the match. Arsenal will hope for a similar performance, but a better result at Stamford Bridge. You can get odds of 10/3 for an Arsenal win on the STS website.

This match will likely be an even game with Chelsea being the slight favourites due to home advantage. 

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham scored a late winner in the previous fixture between the two, and he is currently at odds of 77/100 to score against Arsenal again at Stamford Bridge.

Injury news

Chelsea: Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Christian Pulisic and Marcos Alonso.

Arsenal: Calum Chambers, Kieran Tierney, Reiss Nelson and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (suspension).
