Arsenal have been quite poor over the last few weeks and the victories over strugglers Burnley and Fulham have provided the only joy for the team in the last six league outings. Chelsea are much better compared to the form shown by Arsenal, but there is a lack of offensive threat from Maurizio Sarri’s men. As the Blues try to improve their squad with a vast outlay in January, a lot could change in the squad between now and the start of the match. Still, Chelsea’s recent record at the Emirates Stadium is not so great. Our preview would pick a draw.

Arsenal win odds: 2.90
Chelsea win odds: 2.30
Correct Score odds
Arsenal have been struggling to create chances over the last few games. Even when they have done, the low confidence of the players has translated into a poor conversion rate. Chelsea also struggle to create chances with their underperforming forwards resulting in Eden Hazard being used out of position as a forward. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This match could see both teams cancel out each other in a number of aspects. Chelsea’s recent run of matches have witnessed a low turnaround of goals with only two out of the last eight games producing more than 2.5 goals. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang remains in the hunt for the Golden Boot title but he faces stiff competition from Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah. Eden Hazard may be Chelsea’s top scorer but he has been less influential as a ‘false nine.’ After scoring three goals in his last two appearances at the Emirates Stadium, Aubameyang is our pick in the first goalscorer prediction.
