Chelsea at Arsenal 1/19/19 - Premier League Picks & Predictions

Yet another London Derby is upon is this Saturday, when Arsenal will play host to Chelsea in a very tough match. The Gunners are coming off a tough loss on the road against West Ham and have been pretty bad against Chelsea in recent years. The Blues did a solid job against Newcastle last week and are coming here looking for points.

Arsenal (12-5-5) will be looking to keep their Champions League dreams alive when they will host Chelsea. Arsenal played a really balanced match on the road against West Ham last week, where they eventually lost by 0-1 thanks to a goal at the start of the second half. They have not been in the best of shapes lately, winning just two of their last five matches in all competitions (2-2-1). They are now sitting at the 5th spot of the league table with 41 points, six behind Chelsea. A loss here would be catastrophic for their hopes of a top-four finish. Chelsea (14-3-5) did not have an easy job against the visiting Newcastle last week but managed to win by 1-2. It was a really balanced first half but Chelsea were better in the second where they scored the winning goal. Prior to that they met a tough elimination in the Carabao Cup semi-finals against Tottenham by 0-1 on the road. Even so, that was their only loss in their last six (4-1-1). Chelsea are now sitting at the 4th spot with 47 points, six ahead of Arsenal and just one behind Tottenham.

Chelsea overcame Arsenal by a tough 2-3 at home earlier in the season and have been excellent in Premier League matches against the Gunners lately, losing just once since 2011 (8-1-5). Matches between the two sides usually feature a lot of goals so the Over 2.75 Goals is the way to go here.
