Chelsea v Arsenal Predictions

Arenal to win - 13/10

Arsenal made a huge statement before the international break with a 1-0 victory over Manchester City at the Emirates and they even managed that result without talisman Bukayo Saka.

While the Gunners could be without the England international for this trip to West London, they still have plenty of attacking options to choose from and that should enable them to come away with the spoils.

Mikel Arteta’s side are yet to taste defeat in the league this season - winning six and drawing two - and they have won four of their last five top-flight encounters on the road, all of those without conceding.

Arsenal are full of confidence and a trip to Stamford Bridge, a venue where they are unbeaten at since 2018, should pose no fears for the title contenders.

The Gunners are running into a Chelsea side that have started to pick up under Mauricio Pochettino after a slow start to the campaign, with the Blues on a three-game winning streak across all competitions.

But their last two wins were against Fulham and Burnley and this visit of Arsenal will be substantially tougher than their recent outings.

Enzo Fernandez to be booked - 12/5

There are sure to be some tackles flying in across the course of this clash and Argentina international Enzo Fernandez could find himself falling foul of the referee.

The Chelsea midfielder has been booked three times in the league this season, only Nicolas Jackson (5) has been cautioned more for the Blues, while his foul count of eight is only surpassed by Conor Gallagher (16).

With the attacking talent that the Gunners possess, it could be a busy evening for Fernandez and the 12/5 on him To Be Booked is hard to ignore.

Gabriel Martinelli to score anytime - 10/3

Gabriel Martinelli’s return to fitness has been a welcome boost for Arsenal, especially given the absence of Saka, and he scored the crucial goal in the victory over the Citizens before the international break.

The Brazil international came off the bench in that victory and, while he may not be handed a starting spot on Saturday, he is likely to be called upon from the substitutes bench and can have a similar impact as last time.

Chelsea Team News

Wesley Fofana, Christopher Nkunku, Ben Chilwell, Romeo Lavia, Trevoh Chalobah and Carney Chukwuemeka are all unavailable for the hosts.

They also have doubts over the fitness of Marcus Bettinelli, Axel Disasi, Benoit Badiashile, Cole Palmer, Armando Broja, Nicolas Jackson and Reece James.

Arsenal Team News

Bukayo Saka, Leandro Trossard and William Saliba all missed the international action with their respective nations and the trio are facing races to be fit for this contest, while Jurrien Timber remains a long-term absentee.
