After the success in the last round in the confrontation with the "townspeople" Tuchel's team rose to the third line in the Premier League standings, displacing Leicester. Now on the balance sheet of the London club are 64 points, which is one point more than the "foxes". It will not be possible to get Manchester United from Chelsea. The distance to the “red devils” is seven points and at the same time the “pensioners” played more for the match.
We must say that Chelsea have often lost points in their home arena lately. So, in their five previous matches at home, in addition to being defeated by the blackbirds, the Londoners drew twice more with Manchester United (0:0) and Brighton (0:0) and they managed to beat Everton during this period (2:0) and Fulham (2:0). The 2:0 score is popular at Chelsea's home games. This is how four of the last seven meetings of the “pensioners” in the Premier League home games ended.
Due to injuries, defender Andreas Christensen and midfielder Mateo Kovacic will miss the match.
In the English Championship, the tournament situation does not look optimistic either. Arsenal are now only in eighth place. From the seventh line, which could become the European Cup, Mikel Arteta's charges are four points behind, but the group of competitors is too strong. West Ham, Liverpool, Tottenham and the same Everton is too early to write off. The Toffees are three points ahead of the Gunners and have played one match less.
Arsenal played the last away matches quite successfully. In five previous trips they managed to beat Leicester (3:1), Sheffield United (3:0) and Newcastle (2:0) and also ended in a draw with Burnley (1:1) and Everton (3:3). In general, Arsenal are seventh in the Premier League in their away game. In 17 matches, Londoners achieved eight victories on fields of rivals, drew three times and lost six meetings.
Due to injuries, defenders David Luis and Pablo Mari, midfielder Granit Jaka will not play in the match. Questionable are Emil Smith Rowe and Matthew Ryan. So, what is the soccer bet prediction for today?
