Reasons for beting on Chelsea vs Arsenal tip
Chelsea and Arsenal are meeting once again in just a few weeks. Only this game has a trophy involved, unlike the one in Bejing. Community Shield final is a unique chance to make final adjustments before the season starts, and also to make a good start with winning one early trophy. It can boost the morale enormously ahead of the Premier League opener, and this is why most of the coaches take it very seriously.
Wembley is going to be the venue of the first major game of the season, and we can’t wait for it to start.
The Blues haven’t played very well in this pre-season warm up. Only one win was recorded, but it was against Arsene Wenger’s team, and it was pretty convincing, 3-0. Afterward, they have lost against equally bad Bayern Munich 2-3, and against Inter Milan, 1-2. The efficiency of the team is still on the solid level, but the defensive part of the team still hasn’t created a chemistry. Antonio Rudiger and David Luiz have a fantastic quality. However, Chelsea is allowing many goals at the moment. To be honest, the two guys from above didn’t spend much time together on the field, and they will have to adjust to each other quickly. Chelsea’s last 6 games ended with over 2.5 goals. In 5 of the last 6 both teams scored.
The Gunners played more games than their city rival, but in the final test, they lost against Seville in the finals of Emirates Cup, 1-2. Prior to this match, their results were in fact, very good. Victories against Benfica, Bayern Munich after the penalties, and two Australian clubs were encouraging for Wenger and the boys. The defensive part of the team looks a little bit uncertain Arsenal has allowed at least one goal in the previous 5 games. Both teams have scored in 4 of those 5 games, and this is something which needs to better if Arsenal wants to attack the title in the Premier League.
Head to head matches
Chelsea and Arsenal met two times before in the Community Shield. Back in 2005, the Blues won 2-1, and in 2015, the Gunners got their revenge 1-0. In the most recent 5 games, Chelsea has 3 wins, and Arsenal has one fewer. 4 consecutive games between these two clubs have ended with over 2.5 goals.
Prediction for Chelsea vs. Arsenal tip
Chelsea is still improving its form, and they are still fitting all the pieces of the puzzle together. Alvaro Morata needs to click with his teammates, and he will be the crucial player in this match. Arsenal, meanwhile, has an enormous motive to win in this game. It is because of the loss in Bejing, and also, because of all the money spent in this transfer window.
Our hunch tells us that this is going to be a high-scoring affair. Over 2.5 goals is a sure bet, and we would suggest to play over 3.5 goals. If the game opens properly, we will have a specialty at Wembley.
