Here are Tom Clee's football betting tips for Chelsea v Arsenal.
Chelsea to win to nil
Having both already had their weaknesses exposed by Manchester City, it’s hard to know exactly where these two teams stand.
The safest option, then, is to stick to what we know.
Our Big Bet Manifesto said to never back Arsenal against the big guns and trust Chelsea to keep clean sheets.
Given the Gunners’ have only scored one goal in their last six visits to Stamford Bridge, that’s good enough for me.
Eden Hazard to score
Hazard has scored three goals in his last five starts against Arsenal, and looked lively when coming off the bench to set up Chelsea’s third last weekend.
Sure to reclaim penalty duty from Jorginho – and with Alvaro Morata continuing to flounder – he’s the most sensible option when picking a home goalscorer.
Granit Xhaka to be carded
Half of Xhaka’s 10 Premier League yellow cards last season came against top-six opposition, while he was also booked away to Chelsea in the EFL Cup.
He didn’t let us down last week after having his name taken against City and, with Matteo Guendouzi more likely to make way should Lucas Toreira come into the side, he’s well worth another punt on Saturday.
Under 4.5 Arsenal corners
Arsenal only managed 24 corners in five matches against Chelsea last season, and won just two at home Man City last weekend.
Chelsea’s new flat back four has only conceded six in two games so far, so unders is definitely the way to go when it comes to away-team corners.
