Chelsea Women v Arsenal Women: Predictions, Tips and Odds

All eyes will be on Stamford Bridge on Friday night as Chelsea take on Arsenal in a heavyweight Women's Super League clash.

The Blues lost 4-1 to the Gunners in December but have won five of their subsequent six league matches and are in the hunt for an unprecedented quadruple.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are fresh from a 4-0 win over Aston Villa in the semi-finals of the Women's FA Cup, coincidentally setting up a final with the Blues at the end of the month.

Chelsea to win - 11/10

Arsenal stunned Chelsea 4-1 at the Emirates Stadium in December but that was arguably a harsh reflection of the game and the Blues can get their revenge at Stamford Bridge.

Despite that result, Chelsea have still been the best team in England this season and sit top of the WSL on goal difference ahead of Manchester City, who are also on 37 points.

As well as leading the WSL pack, they are through to the quarter-finals of the Women's Champions League, the final of the Women's FA Cup and the semi-finals of the Women's League Cup.

And prior to their 1-0 defeat to Manchester City last month, Chelsea were on a remarkable 33-game unbeaten run on home soil.

They head into this game without the likes of Sam Kerr, Mia Fishel and Millie Bright but have coped well with those absences recently, winning each of their last three games against Leicester, Manchester City and Everton without conceding a goal.

And Arsenal are missing personnel themselves, with Vivianne Miedema still sidelined along with Lina Hurtig, Laura Wienroither and Teyah Goldie.

Chelsea are well-versed in these kinds of matches and Emma Hayes will expect nothing less than a win on home soil, so back the Blues to get the better of their London rivals.

Over 3.5 goals - 13/8

Chelsea's recent games have been short of goals, but that could change when Arsenal come to town.

Their last clash with the Gunners produced five goals in December and both of these sides like to play on the front foot, having scored a combined 78 goals in the WSL this campaign.

From Alessia Russo to Lauren James, both sides are full of players who have a moment of magic in their locker and over 3.5 goals looks a decent pick at 13/8.

Chelsea have been tight at the back recently, but a defence missing both Bright and Maren Mjelde may struggle to keep tabs on a hungry Arsenal team who have scored 12 goals in their last four matches.

As suggested, Chelsea should get the win, but they will have to work for it and this should be an entertaining match-up.

Lauren James to score at anytime - 6/4

In the absence of key striker Kerr, Chelsea winger James has had to step up to the plate and she has excelled this season.

James scored the decisive goal in Chelsea's 1-0 win over Manchester City in the Women's FA Cup semi-finals earlier this month and she has been a reliable source of goals in the WSL.

She has scored 12 goals in 13 matches in the WSL this term, averaging a goal every 80 minutes, with only City forward Khadija Shaw (15 goals) ahead of her in the league's scoring charts.

Arsenal are unlikely to adopt a conservative approach to this game and there should be opportunities on the counter-attack for Chelsea, so James can capitalise.
