Chelsea v Crystal Palace betting tips

Chelsea v Arsenal betting tips for the lunchtime kick off on Saturday. Our tipster has picked out 3 of the best bets for the tasty loooking encounter




Chelsea may well have grabbed a solid 4-0 win against Maccabi Tel-Aviv on Wednesday, but Jose Mourinho is firmly under pressure given Chelsea's ridiculously poor domestic form. With Arsenal the visitors to the Bridge. Can Chelsea finally turn up and save Mourinho from the howls of derision from the home support?


Chelsea v Arsenal betting tips:


Arsenal lost midweek to Dinamo Zagreb, and to be quite honest, they were extremely poor. With Oxlade-Chamberlain putting past his own keeper on 24 minutes and with Giroud managing to get himself sent off after only 40 minutes, Arsenal’s day rarely looked like ending on a positive note.


Theo Walcott grabbed a late consolation, but it was too little too late for Arsenal. 


After their Champions League win, things looked to be on the up for Mourinho, finally. However, both Willian and Pedro look set to miss out through injury and Oscar is in a race against time to be fit for the match.


Petr Cech looks set to face his old club on Saturday, with Wenger bizarrely decided to rest his keeper for the midweek clash against Zagreb. Per Mertesacker also looks to be in line for a return after missing 4 games with a virus.


Chelsea have been pitiful in defence so far this season and I have no doubt that they will concede against Arsenal. Thibaut Courtois is set to miss out on a large chunk of the season due to requiring surgery on a knee injury, which means that Asmir Begovic will once again take the gloves for the West Londoners. 

Whilst Begovic is an able deputy, he does not provide the same security the the Belgian number 1 does in both his shot stopping ability or his distribution.


Chelsea haven’t failed to score at home for ages. It’s been at least 20 games now, and after that I gave up looking. Chelsea always pose a threat and they will also score in this match.

Under Mourinho Chelsea were famed for having an almost perfect home record. They very rarely even conceded, let alone lost a game at The Bridge. However, with the decline of John Terry, as well as the apparent lax attitude and lack of desire displayed by many in Blue, those days seem to be long gone.

However, my gut is telling me that the misery will keep being piled on Mourinho after this game. Arsenal have the ability to keep the ball, whereas Chelsea have been sloppy in possession all season. I think Arsenal will dominate and will emerge victorious to secure a famous win in Chelsea’s back yard.
