Chelsea: Injury issues

Graham Potter's first defeat as Chelsea manager last weekend was when he lost 4-1 to his former team, Brighton. The Blues immediately bounced back, beating Dinamo Zagreb 2-1 in the Champions League, earning a spot in the knockout stages of the most important European competition.

If something was wrong with the Chelsea team, one could argue it's about their lack of attacking firepower. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joined Chelsea on deadline day in the summer transfer window after leaving Arsenal earlier this year, but he’s not a starter. He only scored three goals in 11 games across all competitions for the Blues.

Chelsea has the joint-worst attacking record in the top nine Premier League teams, with just 17 goals scored in 12 games. The hosts are dealing with some critical injuries on defense which will be challenging to overcome. Ben Chilwell, Mateo Kovacic, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Reece James, Wesley Fofana, and N'Golo Kante are all absent from the Chelsea squad.

Let’s be honest, the title race is over for Chelsea, but they're looking for a top-four finish. Potter did not have a pre-season to work with his new players. On average, he has been overseeing two games per week, and he needs more time to adjust and implement his working methods and tactics. Chelsea is undefeated at home this season, with three wins and two draws.

Arsenal: Flying-High

If Arsenal wins, they will go 13 points clear of Chelsea and secure the two-point gap between them and Man City. They dropped just four points this season, losing just one in 12 games. The Gunners were in action on Thursday, finishing off their Europa League campaign with another win against Zurich, but Mikel Arteta's men have managed well with the demands of juggling UEL and the EPL fixtures.

Not even the most optimistic fan could have anticipated Mikel Arteta’s troops making such a brilliant start to their domestic season. The anti-Arsenal people will say that the Gunners are yet to play Man City, Chelsea, and surprise package Newcastle and six of their 12 games were against all three promoted sides and three more struggling teams like Aston Villa, Leicester, and Southampton.

Arsenal is the best road team in the league, with 13 points picked up in six away fixtures and just four goals allowed in the process. Arsenal’s attack has been well-balanced this term, with Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli contributing on the scoresheet five times each, while Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard have scored four goals, as well.

Chelsea vs. Arsenal Stats & Betting Picks

Arsenal kept their fifth clean sheet of the season last time out, and Arteta will probably be happy with the draw here. Chelsea claimed seven wins in the previous 10 matches at home across all tournaments. Both teams scored in eight of the last 10 home matches for Chelsea. The same happened in four of the last 10 league games away from home for Arsenal. Arsenal has scored in each of their previous five away matches.
