Chelsea vs Arsenal: Prediction
The two teams are in a superb form which makes none of them favorites in this game. They are good at both ends of the pitch having recorded good offensive and defensive form so far this season.
The game could go either way, but unlike the reverse of this fixture, we are expecting limited goals in the game. The game is expected to be decided in the second half as we expect a stalemate in the first half.
