Arsenal may have kept back-to-back clean sheets in the league, but they have both come at The Emirates, and away from home they have shipped six in three games (though they’ve scored seven), which will give Aleksandar Mitrovic and friends plenty of encouragement.
BTTS is pretty self-explanatory for this; Arsenal are looking strong while Fulham may just fancy an upset.
Maurizio Sarri’s side can count themselves a tad unfortunate not to have beaten West Ham a fortnight ago, but their victories on the road against Huddersfield and Newcastle show that Chelsea are well-equipped to overturn a very poor Southampton.
The Saints won just four home matches last season (and yet somehow remained in the division), which convinces me there’s no chance of an upset.
Chelsea to win with a -1 handicap is hard to overlook in this one.
What a revelation Raheem Sterling has been under Pep Guardiola. The England man enjoyed his best goalscoring season last campaign (18) and also registered 11 assists. People like to bash Sterling due to his less-than-impressive scoring record for the national team, but that’s neither here nor there – Sterling clicks in this City side, and Guardiola sees him as a key component of it.
While Aguero is still City’s main man up front, Sterling has already scored four times this season, and he is looking more dangerous by the game. I’m backing him to score at any time against his former club and continue the wonderful form he’s been consistently showing
