Football – England – Premier League Betting Tips

Wednesday brings us an important London clash between Arsenal and Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium with sixth placed Arsenal looking for all three points in tonight’s encounter which would see them overhaul their north London rivals, Tottenham, into fifth spot.

But there’s a small matter of their opponents, Chelsea, who sit in third spot and hold a seven point cushion over Arsenal, but the hosts are unbeaten in their last six matches overall, a run that includes wins over Newcastle united and Crystal Palace.

However, one too many draws (four in these last six matches to be precise), have cost Arsenal valuable ground on the top five clubs in their quest for a Champions League place, and manager Arsene Wenger may perhaps be rueing a lack of cutting edge up front. Nevertheless, Arsenal hold a solid home record of  8-1-1  25/10.

Chelsea will also be keen to grab all three points in this all-London affair as a win tonight would see them leapfrog Manchester United into second place, but even if they do manage the win this evening, they’ll still be 14 points adrift of the runaway league leaders, Manchester City.

Chelsea come into this clash having won four of their last five with wins over Huddersfield Town, Southampton, Brighton and Stoke City, along with a point away at Everton, but it’s worth noting that three of these four recent wins were recorded at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea’s recent form on the road has seen them win three, draw two and suffer one defeat amidst an overall record of  6-2-2  18/7 and they hold the second best defensive record away from home in the Premier League behind leaders, Manchester City.

Arsenal and Chelsea seem closely matched and neither will want to lose against another top six rival.
