Arsenal will be the first title contender to play midweek, with Liverpool and Manchester City playing on Wednesday and Thursday respectively. This gives them the chance to cement their lead and put extra pressure on the other two sides.

The 2-0 win on the visit to Wolverhampton was a necessary boost for the team after the elimination in the UEFA Champions League, and the home defeat against Aston Villa. Now fully focused on the Premier League, the best thing they can do is take it game by game and hope for their rivals to slip up in the chase.

Chelsea arrives at the game after suffering a crushing elimination to Manchester City in the FA Cup semifinals last Saturday. It was a 1-0 defeat at Wembley, despite the fact that they had the best chances. Yet, they could not transform them into goals and City was clinical on the other end. To make it even more painful for Chelsea fans, a penalty shout for handball inside City’s box did not go their way.

However, the Blues are on a good run in the Premier League that, bringing them back into the fight for European spots. Their last league defeat was right games ago, collecting four wins and four draws since. A win on Tuesday will place them over Manchester United into seventh spot with six games to play.

Arsenal vs Chelsea Prediction

Arsenal win at 1.53

Arsenal has not lost a Premier League game against Chelsea in their last four encounters, with three wins and a draw. Besides the recent defeat against Aston Villa at home, the Gunners have been very strong at the Emirates, collecting 12 wins in 16 games.

Chelsea has struggled this season playing away from home with just five wins in their 15 games. The only away win against the top teams came back in November when they beat Tottenham 4-1. Their last win at the Emirates came back in 2021 with Tomas Tuchel as manager.

Arsenal vs Chelsea Tips

Both teams to score at 1.57

The game promises goals in the build-up with a Chelsea team very strong on transitions to hurt teams like Arsenal. The Gunners themselves are currently the league’s highest-scoring team with 77 goals in 33 games played. They have scored in their last four games against Chelsea, adding up to a total of 10 goals.

Pochettino’s side could not find the net in their last game, but they was on an eight-game scoring streak before that, showcasing their ability to create chances. Cole Palmer is currently the top joint goalscorer with 20 goals together with his ex-teammate Erling Haaland. Thus, the young Englishman will look to beat last year’s Golden Boot winner in what has been fantastic debut season in Chelsea blue.
