Arsenal News and Form – Will Arsenal beat Chelsea?

Once again Arsenal failed to deliver a league win. They went to Bournemouth on Boxing Day and left with a 1-1 draw. That was new boss Mikel Arteta’s first game in charge. Arsenal have now claimed just one victory in their last eleven league fixtures and are winless in three (D2 L1). Arsenal had to fight back to get their point against Bournemouth on Thursday. Arsenal have conceded the opening goal in 7 of their last 8 Premier League games. The one exception there was a 0-0 draw against Everton just before Christmas. Only six teams have a worse home record than Arsenal have this season.

The Gunners have played three games against top four sides this season. They have lost them all, conceding at least two goals in each of those defeats. Indeed, the Gunners have not taken a win from eight games (home and away) against any team who finished Boxing Day inside the top ninet. Arsenal’s home record is W3 D4 L2 this season where they have averaged 1.5 goals per game. It is a five match winless streak of home form that the Gunners are on, losing their last two there against Brighton and Man City. They have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three home games.

Chelsea News and Form – Can Chelsea win at Arsenal?

The Blues had another collapse at home on Boxing Day. They suffered a 2-0 loss against Southampton in a result which few would have seen coming. But that was the third loss in four home games for Chelsea. Away from home they have lost two of their last three. So they are having some struggles. They did produce what was arguably their best performance of the entire season in their last away game. That was a 2-0 success which they secured at Tottenham. The overall away record this season for Chelsea is a positive W6 L3.

Chelsea have averaged 2.4 goals per away game in this campaign. But they have also had their defensive struggles, conceding an average of 1.9 per road fixture. With all of that, 67% of Chelsea’s away games have ended up going over 3.5 goals. Chelsea have been to three of the top six (after Boxing Day’s action) and have a W2 L1 record. The Blues have taken only the one clean sheet on the road, but two-thirds of their away wins have been recorded by at least a two goal margin. Chelsea have also been leading at half time in five of nine away games, having scored two-thirds of their road goals in the first period of action.

Arsenal vs Chelsea Predictions

Chelsea to win: If the Blues play like they did at Spurs in their last away game, there is more than a decent chance that they can pick off Arsenal. The Gunners just don’t look capable of closing out a game and new boss Mikel Arteta is going to need more time to sort them out. Away win.
