Arsenal play host to Chelsea in a top of the table Premier League on Sunday 26th April, find out how the football betting offers at William Hill can benefit your Arsenal v Chelsea bets.
Arsenal are going great guns at the moment with a costly home defeat to Monaco in the Champions league the only blot on their copybook in the last 13 outings. Arsene Wenger's side made it to a second successive FA Cup Final after a 2-1 extra-time victory over Reading last week and can close the gap to the league leaders to just 7 points with a win in this match.
The Blues meanwhile, weathered the storm against Man Utd to record a 1-0 success at Stamford Bridge last weekend and take another step towards securing the Premier League title. Even if they do slip up in this match, it's hard to see Chelsea not winning the league, but Jose Mourinho is not known for resting on his laurels and his side will as ever be hard to beat.
Chelsea won the reverse fixture 2-0 at Stamford Bridge with goals from Eden Hazard and Diego Costa securing the 3 points and the Blues are unbeaten on their previous four visits to the Emirates.
Sunday's match will be shown live on Sky Sports 1 at 16.00 and will be eagerly watched by both casual and professional gamblers looking to make a profit on what should be a thrilling encounter. One way that you can increase your chances of winning long term, is to take advantage of the free bet offers available at William Hill, to add a level of protection to your Arsenal v Chelsea bets.
Bore Draw Insurance
Jose Mourinho is a master of setting his side up to avoid defeat and the Blues kept unnecessary risks to a minumum against Man Utd last weekend. There have been 2 goalless games in the previous 7 meetings between these sides, both of which were at the Emirates, so a bore-draw is not beyond the realms of possibility, despite the attacking talent that will be on display.
Most of us will be hoping for an entertaining game, but if Arsenal v Chelsea does finish 0-0 and ruin your bet, William Hill will refund all losing Correct Score and Double Result(HT/FT) bets on the match as a Free Bet equal to your stake, capped at a maximum of £50.
Goalscorer 2nd Chance
Olivier Giroud is the man of the moment for Arsenal with 7 goals from his previous 7 Premier League games, while Alexis Sanchez netted a brace against Reading in the FA Cup and both players will have their admirers in the First Goalscorer market for this game. From midfield, Santi Cazorla and Aaron Ramsey have chipped in with a few goals and may be of interest to those looking for longer odds on the market.
Chelsea's forward line is looking rather depleted of late with Diego Costa still ruled out with a hamstring injury and both Loic Remy and Didier Drogba doubts for this game. But Eden Hazard has ensured that their goals have not dried up and will be a hugely popular bet to open the scoring as he has done in 4 of his last 6 matches, while Cesc Fabregas who scored first against QPR two games back may be doubly determined to get a goal against his former club.
Whoever you plump for in the First Goalscorer market, use William Hill for the added protection of a free bet refund, should your losing selection then go on to score the second goal of the game. Goalscorer 2nd Chance entitles qualifying customers to a free bet refund of up to £50.
