Competition: Premier League
Market: Chelsea to beat Arsenal
Odds: 31/20 @ Bet365
The Premier League moves into its first fixtures of January in midweek as the league continues to heat up. Every side was given the chance to pick up a glut of points of December, and while some succeeded in doing this, others failed massively. With the season now well into its second-half, every side knows how important it is to embark upon a positive run of form. With this in mind, there is a huge battle at the top as Arsenal host Chelsea on Wednesday.
Arsenal have been in fairly good form lately, but it has not stopped them from losing ground on the teams above them. After 21 games they have 11 wins, five draws and five losses, while they have scored 38 times and conceded 26 goals. The 38 points they have accumulated has seen them into fifth-place, six points behind Liverpool, while they will likely slip further down the table as Tottenham are a mere point behind them with a game in hand over the Gunners. A win over Chelsea is therefore vital if they are to keep up with Spurs and Liverpool.
For Chelsea, this is a chance to re-claim their position in second-place. After 21 games they have 14 wins and three draws, while they have scored 39 goals and conceded just 14 times. They are currently two points behind Manchester United with a game in hand, and they will feel that Manchester City may be liable to drop more points in the weeks to come, which means they must keep on winning to have any chance of chasing the leaders down. With all of this in mind, we are backing Chelsea with odds of 31/20 from Bet365.
