Arsenal: Eight unbeaten games ( Recent Form: W W D W D )
At Arsenal, they were able to win only one of the last three games in 2017. The Gunners came no further than a draw against Liverpool (3-3), were able to win 1-2 Crystal Palace last week and played last week. Sunday immediately on a visit to West Bromwich Albion. The match between West Bromwich Albion and Arsenal was not much, until a free kick in the final phase of Alexis Sánchez's match via James McClean disappeared into the goal of WBA. Still, Arsenal did not succeed in defending a 0-1 lead at The Hawthorns, as West Bromich was on a level with the Gunners in the 89th minute after a rather dubious penalty kick. Incidentally, it was the thirteenth penalty that Petr Čech faced as goalkeeper of Arsenal and the Czech was also thirteen times passed from the penalty spot. Arsenal now has 38 points and The Gunners are six points behind at number four Liverpool. The team of Arsène Wenger has one point ahead of Tottenham at the time of writing, but The Spurs came into action yesterday (Tuesday) with Swansea City. Wenger sat against West Bromwich Albion for the 811th time on the bench on behalf of Arsenal and Wenger, who has been head coach at The Gunners since 1996, passing Sir Alex Ferguson on Sunday afternoon. Against Chelsea Wenger will be back on the bench at Arsenal, but the FA has indicted Wenger after the duel with WBA after an eruption of Wenger towards the referee and it seems that the English Football Association will suspend the Frenchman in the short term. While visiting West Browmich Albion, Sead Kolašinac and Laurent Koscielny had to leave the field with injuries and Kolašinac does not play against Chelsea anyway, while playing Koscielny is still doubtful. Mesut Özil was not there on New Year's Eve because of a knee injury and at Arsenal they will decide just before the match if the German is fit enough to play against Chelsea.
Chelsea: Three clean sheets in a row ( Recent Form: W W D W W )
At Chelsea they managed to win their last game before the match with Arsenal. The current champion played Saturday against Stamford Bridge against Stoke City and left nothing of the visitors from Stoke-on-Trent: 5-0. Within 25 minutes Chelsea was already leading 3-0 and it was partly thanks to the visitors that The Blues managed to win 5-0, as with Stoke Chelsea-out was clearly not the highest priority. Against Stoke there were five different goal scorers at Chelsea and the Brazilian Willian also put his name back on the scoreboard. In addition, the striker also gave Stoke City two assists and Willian was now involved in six goals of Chelsea in his last four games on behalf of The Blues. In addition to Willian, Thibaut Courtois is undoubtedly in his own right: the Belgian goalkeeper managed to keep the zero in eight of his last twelve league matches. As Manchester United played a draw against Southampton (0-0) on Saturday and José Mourinho's team won 0-2 on Monday at Everton, Chelsea now has two points behind The Red Devils. Against Stoke City, players like Eden Hazard and Cesc Fàbregas got the rest of Antonio Conte, but they will probably just start again in the basic team of the Italian against Arsenal. Conte still has to compete against Arsenal without Charly Musonda and David Luiz, who this week was linked to a departure to Arsenal, but this season they are already very rare in Conte's plans.
NOWGOAL BETTING VERDICT:
After all, Arsenal thus lost in two of the last three games points and Chelsea is doing very well in the Premier League lately, apart from the 0-0 draw to visit Everton. Since Arsenal not everyone is fit and Chelsea generally has more quality than The Gunners, I think the Chelsea +0 is certainly playable in this game. For those who like a bet, a red card in the game is also worth it. In six of the last seven matches between both teams, players were sent off the field.
