Chelsea v Arsenal predictions: Premier League preview, line-ups & betting tips

Nowadays the Chelsea v Arsenal derby is just as important as the North London derby against Spurs in most Gooners' eyes, and the fact is that our League record against the Blues has not been very inspiring in recent years, especially at Stamford Bridge where we have lost on our last 5 visits and haven't won since 2011.

The Blues have been in superb form following their shock defeat to Burnley on the opening day.

The West London side now occupy the third spot in the table with nine points from their opening game. This was followed by 1-0 defeat to Stoke City and a crushing 4-0 loss at the hands of Liverpool. It gave us a little bit of a problem of confidence away from home, but I don't really believe in that. And their recent away record against the top six sides doesn't bode well for them.

Attack: Conte has hinted that Eden Hazard could make his first start of the new campaign as he's now close to being 100% match-fit after getting another 30 minutes under is belt in midweek having recovered from a broken foot. Southampton have also failed to score in their last two trips to Selhurst Park so backing the 0-0 here at a tempting 15/2 looks the way to go. Last season, both sides won their respective home games.

Chelsea were 3-1 winners against Arsenal in their last Premier League meeting at Stamford Bridge in February but the Gunners have beaten the defending champions in the FA Cup final and the Community Shield either side of the summer break.

Over the last three months, the shares of the company have changed 17.46% and performed 9.40% over the last six months. Petroleo Brasileiro SA Petrobras (ADR) (NYSE:PBR) has risen 39.56% since September 15, 2016 and is uptrending.

Nonetheless, fans are treating the game with pessimism, with doubts still hanging over whether or not Arsenal are able to beat the best away from home.

"He runs beyond and he'll run them in the channels".

Deadline day arrival Danny Drinkwater is struggling with an injury and is not expected to make the squad.

The column returned a tidy profit in midweek largely thanks to napping an 11/1 victor in the shape of Liverpool to draw 2-2 with Sevilla in the Champions League.

One bright spark from Thursday's game who could feature at Stamford Bridge though is Sead Kolasinac who only played the second half. Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla are still out for the Gunners.

After beginning the game on the bench, Crockett had just 10 carries for 19 yards, fueling injury concerns. Missouri (1-2) has scored a combined 16 points since its 72-43 season-opening win over Missouri State.

"What I like about Chelsea is that even when they are under pressure they always offer a threat on the counter".

"We worked in full consultation with police and UEFA officials on the night and in advance of the game and had taken extensive steps in advance to prevent tickets being sold to visiting supporters", it read.

Just a shame that match isn't happening, an odd thing to say after picking what is literally a fantasy side where technical ability is one of the main factors behind who gets the nod.

A 1-1 draw is the most probable result at 15/2 odds.

The Gunners' last win at Stamford Bridge came nearly six years ago.
