888sport has a great welcome offer for new customers giving treble odds on their first bet placed, which is ideal for this Saturday’s Premier League clash between Chelsea and Arsenal.
Chelsea dominated their way to the Premier League title last season, but the defending champions have looked a shadow of their former selves so far in the current campaign.
Jose Mourinho’s men have won just one game in the Premier League so far - a battling 3-2 win over West Brom - and, with an opening day 2-2 draw with Swansea and defeats to Manchester City, Crystal Palace and Everton in their other four games, the Blues currently sit just above the relegation places and are in dire need of a kick-start to their season.
While Chelsea may be fourth-bottom at present, Arsene Wenger’s men occupy fourth spot and will look to continue their fine start to the season. Arsenal have managed to put their opening day defeat to West Ham firmly behind them, by picking up 10 points in their next four games and climbing up into the Premier League’s top four places.
Chelsea fans will hope that the Stamford Bridge side can emulate the Gunners’ ascent up the table, starting with a much-needed win on Saturday. However, the Blues have only managed to win 55 of their previous meetings with Arsenal in all competitions, with the Gunners claiming 66 victories and 49 draws in their 170 clashes.
Better news for the Premier League champions is that they hold the edge in their 81 games on home soil against the Gunners, with 29 wins to Arsenal’s 26 and a further 26 draws in 81 previous home games in this fixture.
Arsenal have not beaten Chelsea since a 5-3 win at Stamford Bridge in October 2011, so Arsene Wenger will surely hope to take advantage of the disastrous start that Mourinho’s men have endured and put to an end an eight-game winless run in this fixture - with only three 0-0 draws giving the Frenchman a respite from defeat during that time.
Chelsea to win is 27/20 on 888sport, but the bookmaker is enhancing those odds to around 8/2 with treble odds (5.05 to be exact.) An Arsenal win at Stamford Bridge is boosted to 6/1 from the normal odds of 2/1, while the draw will pay better at 7/1 when the price is tripled.
Open an account with 888sport and you will get treble odds on your first bet, up to £10 maximum stake.
You’d be crazy to let the offer pass if you don’t have an account with 888sport and the great thing about this treble odds offer is that all the winnings will be paid in cash, which means it can be withdrawn straight away and there is no obligation to make another bet with the extra winnings like some other enhanced odds offers.
The offer applies to any sport and 888sport has an extensive choice with thousands of markets on over 20 different sports. However, it’s this Premier League clash that will create most interest this Saturday lunchtime - as two of last season’s Premier League top three sides do battle in another heavyweight clash.
