Chelsea vs Arsenal Prediction 17 September 2017

Tournament: English Premier League
Location: Stamford Bridge Stadium
Match date: 17.09.2017 at 13:30

On September 17 2017 at 13:30 in the main game of the 5th matchday of the English Premier League the London Derby will be played at the Stamford Bridge between Chelsea and Arsenal.

Some changes were made in the squad of Chelsea after their great previous season and those changes seemed rather controversial to us and yet they appeared to be efficient. The beginning of the championship was really unexpected for the Blues as they lost to Burnley 2:3 and yet we must remind you that Chelsea had two of their players sent-off in that game. That mistake is still the only one for Chelsea in the current championship. In the next games they outplayed Tottenham 1:2, Everton 2:0 and Leicester. At the beginning of the current season Chelsea played their game in the first round of the Champions League where they outplayed Qarabag with the devastating 6:0.

As for Arsenal, they don’t seem to be in good psychological conditions now. Last time they won the league was 12 years ago in the season 2003/04 and since then they only got trophies in the secondary English tournaments. For example, they won in the Community Shield game which made their critics silent for some time. In the first game of the national championship Arsenal hardly outplayed Leicester 4:3 and after that lost to Stoke City and had probably their worst game in a few latest years as they lost to Liverpool 4:0 at the Anfield. Last weekend Arsenal played against Bournemouth and won 3:0 without any serious problems.

Chelsea and Arsenal have already played 191 games against each other which make this derby a historical one. Arsenal won in 74 of them while Chelsea won 2 times and the teams drew 55 times. Anyway, Arsenal got that advantage during their first years while Chelsea have an advantage in the latest matches against the Gunners. We must admit that Chelsea won all of the latest five games played against Arsenal at the Stamford Bridge. Considering the poor performance of Arsenal in the away games, we think that Chelsea are the favorites of the upcoming game.
