Arsenal vs Chelsea Betting Picks EPL
The Gunners must now be more careful with each step they take, as the few mistakes they have made have reduced the gap with their nearest rival. By their 24th game, Arsenal had 18 wins, 3 draws, and 3 losses. The matches in which they barely picked up a point, or nothing at all, paved the way for the Cityzens to enjoy their stumbles. They now face games that could be a cakewalk, but they must give it their all. Such is the case of Arsenal vs Chelsea, a match they were able to dominate throughout 2022, and a victory would be fantastic for them.
Chelsea is gradually falling with irreparable stumbles and mistakes from their losses. There is little stability in Chelsea’s ability to produce good results in each game they play. Occasionally, they manage to win matches, but they are followed by bland draws or tough defeats. There are no traces of the great Pride of London team that was already in tenth place by matchday 23 with the possibility of further descent. Their last five games to date have resulted in 4 draws and 1 victory and defeat, but it is not enough to climb up the rankings. The upcoming Arsenal vs Chelsea match will make their outlook even more difficult.
Arsenal vs Chelsea Preview Games and History
The last Arsenal vs Chelsea was on November 6, 2022, and it was not a match that Arsenal could win easily, as Stamford Bridge would not allow a rout. The visitors’ attacking attempts were frustrated by the Blues, who did everything to seek the result in their favor, although it would not be enough.
The ball was mostly in the hands of the Gunners, with 56% possession, which could help define the match, but it would not make a significant difference on the pitch. Chelsea had 44% ball control, and it was evident that they were making efforts not to falter and concede the game.
Arsenal achieved an 82% pass accuracy, which was regular for their level of play. The hosts had a 73% success rate in their combinations, which undoubtedly set a precedent for missed passes not allowing a more incisive approach toward the opposing team’s field. The visitors had two shots on target, converting one, while the hosts generated only one shot on goal, unable to score.
The first half passed without any changes in the scoreline, and the activity of the teams was barely noticeable. It was in the second half, in the 63rd minute, when Saka served a ball to defender Gabriel Magalhaes to score the only goal of the match, securing a win for Arsenal away from home against Chelsea.
