Chelsea v Arsenal Betting Tips & Preview – Sunday 17th September 2017

Antonio Conte’s Chelsea and Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal lock horns at Stamford Bridge this Sunday for a heavyweight clash in the Premier League. These two have met four times in three separate competitions since September last year, so they should know all there is to know about each other.

It’s always a thrilling game when these two London rivals go head-to-head, and we’re expecting fireworks in the capital on Sunday. As expected, the home team are the bookies’ favourites to add another three points to their tally. However, the Gunners will be looking to build on last weekend’s big win over Bournemouth. Which way will this tasty clash go in west London on Sunday?

Top Tips

  • Chelsea to Win -1 - 11/5 at Betfair
  • Chelsea to Win to Nil - 27/10 at BetVictor


Chelsea are on a fine run of form having won four out of four since their opening weekend humiliation by Burnley. Since then, the Blues have beaten Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Leicester City to fire themselves up to third in the table. The Premier League champions also began their UEFA Champions League campaign with a bang on Tuesday, thumping Qarabag 6-0 at the Bridge.

As for the Gunners, they have made another indifferent start to their season. However, after falling to back-to-back away defeats to Stoke City and Liverpool respectively, Wenger’s troops got back to winning ways last weekend, easing past Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium. That win leaves them in 11th place on six points from a possible 12.

These two met in the Emirates FA Cup final and the FA Community Shield final recently, which were both won by Arsenal. The Gunners also beat Chelsea 3-0 in their home PL fixture last term, meaning they have won three of the last four against the Blues.

That said, now Conte’s boys have kicked into gear, we can see them easing past Arsenal at the Bridge on Sunday. Betfair are offering the tempting price of 11/5 for the hosts to win -1. We also believe there’s good value in BetVictor’s 27/10 for Chelsea to win to nil.

Other Bets

We’ve seen plenty of goals in this fixture in the Premier League over the years, including seven between the pair last season. Chelsea, who hit six in Europe on home turf in midweek, always score at Stamford Bridge. With that in mind, have a punt on Betfred’s 29/20 for the home win and over 2.5 goals.

Alvaro Morata has hit the ground running at Stamford Bridge, netting three times in four Premier League appearances so far. We’re backing him to continue that fine run this weekend, with BetVictor’s 10/3 for the Spaniard to score first standing out.
