Chelsea 4/5 to beat Arsenal in Wednesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final
Competition: Carabao Cup
Market: Chelsea to beat Arsenal
Odds: 4/5 @ Bet365
The Carabao Cup enters the semi-final stage of the competition as every side still in the tournament will feel they have a real chance of lifting the season’s first piece of available silverware. With this in mind, there is a London derby to be played on Wednesday as Chelsea host Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have been in good form this season and they are looking to transfer this into their final three games in the Carabao Cup. After 22 games they have 14 wins, while they have lost four games and drawn four times, scoring 41 goals and conceding 16 times. In their last five games they have remained unbeaten, winning three times and drawing twice, which has helped the Blues onto 46 points for the season so far, just a point behind second-placed Manchester United. With their Premier League defence all but over, Antonio Conte will be targetting the cup competitions, starting with the Carabao Cup.
Arsenal have been fairly good this season, but they are in danger of being left behind in the league. After 22 matches they have 11 wins, six draws and five defeats, while they have scored 40 goals and conceded 28 times. They are unbeaten in their last five, but they have only won two of these matches, and their points tally of 39 means they are five short of Liverpool in the final Champions League spot. Arsene Wenger will want to make a statement after being knocked out of the FA Cup on the weekend, but we are backing Chelsea with odds of 4/5 from Bet365.
