Chelsea v Arsenal tips – 2/1 Chelsea can give Gunners the Blues
Arsenal set to crash to another defeat at Stamford Bridge on Sunday
October 3rd, 2014
Danny Welbeck’s hat-trick helped Arsenal to a memorable 4-1 win against Galatasaray on Wednesday night although we shouldn’t read too much into that result when it comes to assessing the Gunners’ chances on Sunday.
The Turkish side were easily beaten at the Emirates and had clear defensive frailties, although that is not an accusation which can be pointed at a Chelsea side who produced a professional performance to claim a 1-0 victory in Portugal on Tuesday.
Indeed, the Blues created enough chances to beat Sporting several times over and they can produce another clinical performance in this London derby, a fixture which saw Chelsea run away with a 6-0 victory last term.
Jose Mourinho makes sure that his team are well prepared for these big games and William Hill offer 4/6 about a home win, with Cesc Fabregas lining up against his former club for the first time since making the switch from Barcelona.
Fabregas is the ticking heart of this team and felt rebuffed that Arsene Wenger passed over the opportunity to sign him, with the midfielder set to pour misery on an Arsenal team who are admittedly free-scoring at the moment.
Danny Welbeck is enjoying a new lease of life as the central striker and enjoyed a Champions League hat-trick against Gala, with Coral offering 9/2 that the visitors claim victory in this encounter.
Bet365 offer 17/2 that Welbeck produces the goods again by breaking the deadlock, although let’s not forget he is no Thierry Henry and a Chelsea win to nil makes plenty of appeal at 2/1.
Thibaut Courtois isn’t beaten easily and the Blues don’t ship many goals at the Bridge so we can back the win and shut-out with a reasonable level of confidence.
