Chelsea vs Arsenal Stats

  • Chelsea have seen under 3.5 goals in 14/16 league games under Thomas Tuchel.
  • Chelsea are undefeated in 15 of their last 16 league matches.
  • Chelsea have kept a clean sheet in seven of their last eight home league matches.

Betting Tip: Chelsea to win and under 3.5 goals

Chelsea have a big weekend ahead of them with the FA Cup final against Leicester on Saturday on the horizon but first they have a home game against Arsenal to tackle. The Blues have had a lengthy schedule of late with domestic cup games as well as European and league commitments and that makes their sheer consistency in performance levels under the impressive Thomas Tuchel all the more admirable.

There’s a clear gulf in quality between these sides, who were once equals. Arsenal have toiled in recent weeks, exiting the Europa League in a nothing performance against Villareal was a worry, but they have done ok on the road in the league this year, a difference to their terrible away form of last season. Even if Chelsea make wholesale changes to their starting eleven here it’s likely to be stronger than the Gunners and Tuchel has shown himself to be a much better manager than Mikel Arteta.

Chelsea don’t look a bad price to win but we can get attractive 13/10 quotes on them to do so in a game featuring fewer than 4 goals and that looks a clever way of boosting the price. Chelsea have only seen over three goals in two of their 25 games under Tuchel and they’ve kept clean sheets in seven of their last eight at Stamford Bridge.
