A North London derby victory on Sunday, allied with Chelsea’s defeat to Aston Villa have thrust Arsenal right back into an intriguing title race and indeed the Gunners will arguably be jostling for favouritism with the Blues for the Premier League crown if they manage to acquire maximum points against Jose Mourinho’s table-toppers at Stamford Bridge this weekend.
However, Arsene Wenger’s men are William Hill’s 3/1 outsiders ahead of the mouth-watering showdown while Chelsea are 21/20 at BetVictor to emerge triumphant, effectively putting paid to Arsenal’s title hopes and it’s 5/2 with bet365 to finish all square.
That was the outcome when the pair met at the Emirates Stadium back in December and Ladbrokes mark 10/1 against a repeat of the goalless scoreline from that encounter. However, prior to the victory at White Hart Lane, the Gunners had taken just one point from their previous three away fixtures and as the Blues are just so strong on their own patch, a slender home win gets the nod.Ladbrokes chalk Chelsea up at 27/10 to shade it by a one-goal margin, they’re 13/2 at Winner.com to record a 1-0 victory and 4/1 (Stan James) to only secure the spoils following an inconclusive first period.
