Chelsea – Arsenal is the derby from the second round in the Premier League featuring two teams that have big expectations from this season. Arsenal made an awful debut while Chelsea had a flawless performance. The game will start at 18:30 and it will take place on Stamford Bridge in London, England.
Chelsea made a really good first game against Huddersfield where they won with 3-0. It’s obvious that their opponents weren’t from the top of the food chain but all things considered they were a dominating side. Even with Olivier Giroud and Eden Hazard managed because of the World Cup fatigue they still managed to take all the three points in great fashion. This one will be a much tougher one as they take on one of the contenders for the title this season. Maurizio Sarri’s team have a really good home record and they will hope to extend their winning streak from this season to two.
Chelsea: Arrizabalaga – Alonso – Luiz – Rudiger – Azpilicueta – Loftus-Cheek – Jorginho – Kante – Hazard – Morata – Pedro
Arsenal unlike their opponents from tonight made a terrible first game but with the Champions from the last season. They lost with 2-0 and had really few chances in that game. With their new coach, Unai Emery, things are not looking so good at the moment but it’s only the start of the season and things are only getting in shape. This one isn’t easy either but Chelsea is a weaker side in my opinion than Guardiola’s team. They have one of the worst away records from the last season and they will hope to end that terrible one now against Chelsea.
Arsenal: Cech – Lichsteiner – Sokratis – Mustafi – Bellerin – Guendouzi – Torreira – Ramsey – Aubameyang – Lacazette – Ozil

Chelsea – Arsenal: Prediction
Last time out when these two teams met in a competitive game Arsenal were on top in the Cup. Four of the last five games ended in draws. Judging from the first two games Chelsea should not have any problems taking all three points from this one. From what we saw in the first game of Arsenal I can’t give them many hopes in this one because Chelsea is a big team as well. I still fancy them to score their first goal in the Premier League in this season. For this game I prepared a good value bet which I think we must take advantage of and hope that it’s a winner as well.
Prediction: Chelsea To Win And Both Teams To Score, Yes, Odds: 3.35
