Chelsea is seen as a favorite this evening, according to the odds offered by betting agencies, being a slightly better team, which also benefits from its own land, where it is very difficult to beat, supporters also playing an important role many times. “Blue” have a fairly good season, at the moment they are engaged in all possible competitions, in the Champions League, reaching the eighths, where they will fight with Barca, in the English Cup will resume the match with Norwich, while in the domestic championship is in third place, being far away from Manchester City’s detached leader. As we mentioned, Chelsea did very well on the ground, being unbeaten in the last 11 games played on Stamford Bridge, with no fewer than nine wins. Antonio Conte, the coach of the home team, has no big bumbles, so tonight he has the opportunity to send the top 11 to the field.
• PROBABLE TEAM: Courtois – Cahill, Christensen, Azpilicueta – Alonso, Fabregas, Kante, Bakayoko, Moses – Hazard – Morata
Arsenal on the other hand, starts with the second chance at the bookmakers, as expected, with value being close to his opponent, but with weaker developments in the current season, being also disadvantaged by the fact that he will evolve away , on a field he has not won since 2011. “Gunners” does not impress in the current season, in the Europa League reaching sixteen, from a lightweight group, being eliminated early in the Cup of England, losing by 4- 2 in the Nottinghat Forest match, and in the championship he only occupies a modest sixth place, being five points in the Champions League. Arsenal is not going through a good form, in the last five official games managed a single victory, in dispute with Crystal Palace, managed to win with 2-3 in the away. Arsene Wenger, unlike his counterpart, has more unavailable players, Cazorla, Monreal, Giroud, Kolasinac, Koscielny and Ramsey being injured so they will not evolve.
• PROBABLE TEAM: Ospina – Holding, Mustafi, Chambers – Maitland-Niles, Wilshere, Xhaka, Bellerin – Sanchez, Welbeck – Lacazette
Judging by the evolutions of the two teams this season, it is not excluded that Chelsea will win today, but we expect Arsenal, the highly offensive team, to score at least once, having the resources to succeed.
Prediction Today: Chelsea – Arsenal: Both marks
