Why should you support Chelsea?
The Blues are playing with a lot of zeal, having won 3-2 against Real Madrid after a 6-0 thrashing of Southampton in their last league encounter. Then they dominated Crystal Palace in the FA Cup semifinals on Sunday, winning 2-0.
They lost on aggregate to Real Madrid in the Champions League quarterfinals, but it was still a thrilling road performance at the Bernabeu. Mason Mount has 12 goals and 14 assists in all competitions after scoring four times in just three games. Timo Werner scored three goals in those games and now has a total of ten.
Werner and Kai Havertz (12 goals) have the speed to cause problems for any defense, and Arsenal has let up six goals in its last three games. Chelsea sits third in the league in terms of goals scored (64), with the third-fewest goals conceded (23). Edouard Mendy, the club’s goalkeeper, is second in the league in save percentage (78.4) and has 12 EPL clean sheets and 20 overall.
Why should you support Arsenal?
The Gunners should play with a sense of urgency, and they have the talent to contend, but their depth has been an issue. In their last two visits to Stamford Bridge, they have a 1-0 win and a 2-2 draw, and they haven’t lost both games in a season since 2015-16.
The Blues have also struggled at home, having lost their last two games in all competitions and just won half of their league games (seven of 14). Chelsea has been one of the best defensive teams this season, but in its previous five games, it has conceded nine goals.
Even the finest defenders may be troubled by players like Bukayo Saka (nine goals, five assists), Emile Smith Rowe (nine goals), and Martin Odegaard (six goals). When these two sides last met at Stamford Bridge, Smith Rowe scored the lone goal, and he hasn’t scored since February. In fact, the entire club is due to break out of their funk, with Odegaard’s solitary goal this month coming in a 2-1 loss to Brighton two weeks ago.

Green has examined Arsenal vs. Chelsea from every perspective, and he believes the goal total will be under. He also offers a detailed breakdown of the contest and two confident best bets, including a powerful play on one side.
Green is well aware that the Blues are coming off a strong run that included a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace in the FA Cup semifinals and a 3-2 win over Real Madrid at the Bernabeu last week. They lost the Champions League quarterfinal on aggregate to Los Blancos, but they still have optimism going into this match.
Mason Mount scored a goal against the Eagles, giving him a league-leading 10 goals and eight assists. Chelsea ranks third in both goals scored (64) and surrendered (23), with Timo Werner scoring 10 goals in all competitions.
Arsenal will be desperate to break a string of poor performances, according to the expert. It has dropped three consecutive games, including a 2-0 loss against the Blues at the Emirates in August. The Gunners, on the other hand, have not lost in either of their past two journeys to Stamford Bridge, and have not lost both meetings in a season since 2015-16.
Chelsea has also struggled at home, losing two of its last three games and winning only half of its home games (seven of 14). The prominent players will be Bukayo Saka (nine goals, five assists) and Martin Odegaard (six, three).
