There are so many London derbies that the individual match-ups inevitably have ebbs and flows.
Chelsea versus Arsenal is a case in point.
The Gunners used to be the dominant force in the capital before Chelsea’s emergence saw them first compete as equals and, in more recent years, have greater success than their London rivals.
The Blues are certainly in a much better spot at the moment and Chelsea looks a good bet to beat Arsenal to nil on Wednesday night at 7/4 with bet365*.

Chelsea vs Arsenal Betting Odds:
The reasoning behind backing Chelsea to win to nil is two-fold.
Firstly, they have been transformed into an excellent defensive unit under Thomas Tuchel’s management.
Secondly, Arsenal have flattered to deceive this season and simply cannot be trusted to put in a good performance.

That is not to say that Arsenal are a poor side.
The Gunners played some good stuff against West Brom on Sunday and individuals showed their undoubted quality.
Chelsea are a completely different challenge to the relegated Baggies though and with the home side expected to control this match we recommend backing the Chelsea/Chelsea half time/full time selection which is available at 7/4 with 888sport.

The main hope for Arsenal fans ahead of this match is that Tuchel rests his key players ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup final and a weakened Chelsea side are gettable.
The problem with that suggestion is that Chelsea have a strong squad full of players ready to step into the first team and are incredibly well coached so whoever starts will know their role inside out.
Tammy Abraham is one of those players desperate for a chance to shine having found his playing time limited since Tuchel’s appointment.
He is still battling for a place in England’s Euro 2020 squad and Abraham can do his slim hopes a boost with a goal at 13/8 with BetVictor.
