Both Managers Unai Emery and Maurizio Sarri will be hoping to get the first derby win before the start of the new campaign.

The Gunners will enter this game on the back of a 5-1 win over French Champions PSG. Chelsea are playing their first game after a 1-1 draw against Inter Milan in the previous game.

Lacazette found the net twice in the previous game, while Ozil was running the show having quit International football.

Chelsea are missing a lot of world cup stars as they are still on break while Arsenal have most of their stars at their disposal.

Arsenal vs Chelsea: Head to Head

The Gunners have defeated Chelsea 76 times while they have lost 62 games to the blues and drawn 57 times.

Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 3 meetings against the London Blues which were all played in January. The Gunners won 2-1 in the last game and drew the previous 2.

Arsenal vs Chelsea: Prediction

This will surely be a strong affair with both sides hoping to grab the first rivalry win and we hope for it edge out other off season games.

Unai Emery’s side have only Lucas Torreira and Danny Welbeck as the missing players as they are yet to return. On the other side, Chelsea are missing a handful of stars and also Kurt Zouma is out of the pre-season tour due to injury.

With Arsenal’s fire power available for this game, we expect a win from them. But it won’t be an easy one as we hope to see goals on both sides of the pitch. We expect the game to record more than 3 match goals.

Arsenal vs Chelsea: Bet Tips

  • Arsenal to win @ 2.45
  • Over 3.5 Match Goals @ 2.65 odd.
