Chelsea vs Arsenal by Marcelino
Chelsea have had a very poor start this season as champions. In the first 5 games, they won only 1 game and lost 3. Performances have been better than results though, they had 2 sending offs so far and the fixtures have been quite challenging. They conceded 12 goals already in the first 5 games. The stats so far don't give them much hope, but they are playing the same team that won the league last year comfortably, so they have a lot of potential and they need just 1 good game to turn things around. I believe this is their game to turn things around.
Arsenal won 3 games, drew 1 and lost 1. Their games have been quite tight with 5 goals scored and 3 conceeded. They started poorly with a home loss to west ham but turned things around to get 3 wins, against not great opposition, in 4 games with a draw at home to Liverpool.
The odds here have reflected the form of the 2 teams. However, I think the odds for Chelsea win are very good and worth taking. This is the perfect game for Chelsea to turn things around. They have a very good record hosting Arsenal, winning 5 of the last 6 meetings. Arsenal will have a tougher fixture in the Champions league on Wednesday away to Zagreb, while chelsea are home to Maccabi. I think Chelsea will be rested better, regain some confidence with Champions league win, get some more confidence from good head to head record and will win this game, make a statement and turn their season around.
