This will be Arsenal’s third game in seven days and Chelsea’s third in nine days – and the Blues have had an extra days rest ahead of this fixture, so should be the fresher.

Last season the Gunners won this fixture 3-0, but Chelsea had won four and drawn two of their previous seven league visits to the Emirates Stadium and so it is they who are favourites here on Wednesday, at best odds of 6/4 with Boylesports.

The Gunners, who have won just two of their last seven league games (D4, L1), are available at best odds of 21/10 with the draw available at 5/2 – both with Betfair.

Arsenal have also only won one of their six games against the other ‘Big 6’ sides so far this season (D2, L3) and last season they only won two of their ten league games against those sides (D3, L5).

But Chelsea have only won one of their last four league games on the road (D2, L1) and, on balance, we favour another draw here at that best price of 5/2 with Betfair.

The reverse fixture in September finished 0-0 at Stamford Bridge, while three of the last five league games between these sides at the Emirates also ended scoreless.

So, we also recommend backing ‘No Goalscorer’ in the First Goalscorer market at a huge looking price of 14/1 with Stan James, plus 1-1 at 6/1 with Bet365, who refund all losing Correct Score bets on games that finish 0-0.

Finally, let’s back ‘Under 2.5 Goals’ at 11/10 with Betfair – a bet that would have won in 5 of the last 7 games in all competitions between these sides at the Emirates.
