Competition: Premier League
Market: Chelsea to score over 1.5 goals
Odds: 5/6 @ 888sport
Simply looking to shore up their spot in the top-four on Wednesday night, a high-flying Chelsea will welcome Arsenal to an empty Stamford Bridge in midweek.
Starting with the hosts, mounting that stunning turnaround away at Manchester City over the weekend, there is no doubt that the mood in Chelsea’s camp will be at a red-hot high. Leaving it late and snatching a dramatic 2-1 victory away at the soon-to-be champions, The Blues have only made a string of improvements since bringing in Thomas Tuchel earlier in the year. Skyrocketing their way back into the top-four and with both an FA Cup and Champions League final fast approaching, the former PSG boss has only seen his side gain a long list of admirers. Now claiming back-to-back eye-catching wins against Manchester City and Real Madrid over the past week, Chelsea should be smelling a golden chance to keep up their red-hot momentum on Wednesday night. More impressive, it should also be noted that Tuchel’s squad have bagged themselves a pair of strikes in their last three contests on the spin.
As for the visitors, while Arsenal might have managed to confirm West Brom’s immediate relegation over the weekend, it does not cover what has been a woeful campaign for The Gunners. Despite landing that 3-1 victory on Sunday night, the pressure is really mounting on Mikel Arteta’s shoulders. With many around the red half of North London feeling that a change in the Emirates dugout is needed, the former Premier League champions find themselves sat way down in ninth. Crashing out of the Europa League at the hands of Spanish outfit Villarreal last week, a result that was billed as one of the worst nights in the club’s history, Arsenal are on the verge of missing out on a European finish for the first time in 25 years. Facing a stern test when they travel across the capital on Wednesday, we’re backing what should be a long night for Arteta’s scrappers.
