On May 2, Emirates Stadium (London) will host the match of the 34th round of the English Premier League, in which Arsenal will compete with Chelsea. The battle will start at 21:00 CET.
The club managed to lose almost all of its achievements of the previous season in just a couple of weeks in April. It goes without saying that there have been failures before, such as knock-outs from the cups or losing on penalties in the Europa League to Sporting Lisbon at the home arena. The higher mentioned results were justified by Mikel Arteta’s desire and the desire of his wards to fully focus on the championship race in the Premier League. And the team was really able to be in a sensational lead for a long time. However, “the Gunners” had destroyed their advantage with a series of draws before the head-to-head meeting against Manchester City: 2-2 scores in the matches with Liverpool and West Ham and a 3-3 equality in the battle against Southampton. Moreover, the first two opponents had been losing a pair of balls during the games. On April 26, almost nothing special happened in the struggle with “the Citizens” – that was a typical performance, especially for De Bruyne and Haaland. As a result, the competitor won with a crushing 4-1 score.
The team has already said goodbye in the mind to the current season. There is nothing left to fight for. “The Aristocrats” flew out from every possible tournament. The last one was the Champions League, where Real did not leave a chance in the quarter-finals, winning both matches with the same score – 2-0. Speaking about the Premier League, it is already uncomfortable to talk about the terms like “prestige” or “dignity”. Potter didn’t do much, but Lampard, with his status of the legend, returned to the position in the Premier League with the defeats – a 0-1 failure in the match with Wolverhampton and a 1-2 misfire in the battle against Brighton. Nothing happened with seemingly out of shape Brentford – the opponent also ended the game by means of two unanswered goals. However, “the Blues” do not want to think about the current season any more, waiting for a new one. And, it seems that the work of Pochettino at Stamford Bridge, which may be officially announced before the starting whistle with “the Gunners”, has already started.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Taking into account 6 previous matches, Chelsea has got only 1 victory and 5 defeats. Arsenal won both matches in 2022.
Bookmakers believe that it’s time for Arsenal to break the disastrous streak, and the opponent is pretty suitable. Thus, we recommend betting on the victory of “the Gunners” with “a -1 goal handicap” (odd: 2.14).
