Arsenal 2/1 to beat Chelsea this weekend following European hangover
Competition: Premier League
Market: Arsenal to win against Chelsea
Odds: 2/1 @ Coral
It’s been three years since Arsenal last won at Stamford Bridge, but with both sides chasing the title this season, there’s all to play for in this weekend’s meeting.
Chelsea are coming off the back of their Champions League win against Galatasaray and could be feeling the effects of just a few days rest in between the matches, while Arsenal have had just shy of a week to prepare for the game – after beating Spurs on Sunday. As a result, this could be Arsenal’s best time to face the Blues – who, in the league, are coming off the back of a 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa.
Coral are giving odds of 2/1 for the Gunners to beat their London rivals, in what would be Arsene Wenger’s first ever league win against Jose Mourinho. The two fierce rivals managers have typically been trading insults all season, but one other constant remains – Wenger’s inability to beat Mourinho in six attempts in the Premier League.
But with Chelsea being afforded little time between games, the Gunners should look to take advantage of any potential fatigue with their opponents, as they could narrow the lead at the top to just one point if they beat Chelsea this weekend.
