Chelsea will be looking to cement their place in the top four when they welcome Arsenal to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

The Blues have been in superb form lately with Thomas Tuchel guiding them to the FA Cup and Champions League finals while they are also now established in the top four of the Premier League table.

Chelsea currently sit third – six points ahead of fifth placed West Ham – after an impressive comeback victory over champions-elect Manchester City at the weekend so they look on course to qualifying for Europe’s elite competition again next year.

Arsenal on the other hand are struggling to secure any form of European football for next season following a disastrous campaign. The Gunner are ninth and four points behind seventh-placed Tottenham.

With just three matches left, Arsenal desperately need a positive result against Chelsea on Wednesday night to keep alive any hopes of qualifying for the Europa League next season.

Betting

Chelsea versus Arsenal is always a big occasion and there will be plenty of interest in the betting markets for this game. The majority of bettors still use traditional gambling sites when betting on football but many are turning to a new breed of crypto betting firms. Crypto is still a risky industry as it’s easy for people to be scammed by unregulated companies so it’s important to use a website like ScamCryptoRobots.com to find out the legitimacy of the Crypto bookmaker or for that matter trading systems like Bitcoin Prime before parting ways with any of your Bitcoin, money, etc.

In this game, Chelsea are the 7/10 favourites to collect all three points on home soil and it’s no surprise given their form recently. Arsenal are available at odds of 9/2 but even the most optimistic Gooner wouldn’t fancy their team to win at Chelsea right now. Perhaps a draw is the best they can hope for and that can be backed at odds of 29/10.

Tips

  • Chelsea 3-1 at odds of 12/1: We can’t see past a home win and are backing Chelsea to win 3-1 on Wednesday night. That scoreline is available at odds of 12/1.
  • Havertz first scorer at 9/2: Kai Havertz has been in good form lately and is a solid bet to open the scoring.
  • Havertz scores first in a 3-1 win at odds of 65/1: Combine the two bets for huge 65/1 odds.

Team news

Chelsea will be without Andreas Christensen as he’s out with a thigh injury while Mateo Kovacic is still struggling to overcome a hamstring issue that’s hampered him lately.

Arsenal are set to be without Granit Xhaka due to a groin injury while Pablo Mari is also a major doubt with an ankle problem that’s kept him out recently.

David Luiz will be assessed after returning to training following a thigh injury while Emile Smith Rowe could miss out with a hamstring issue that he sustained against West Brom at the weekend.

Prediction: Chelsea 3-1 Arsenal
