BTTS & Ov. 2.5 Goals

Arsenal vs Chelsea 01.08.2021

Both of these London outfits have been busy with pre-season friendlies as they gear up for the start of the new season that is just around the corner. 

After a sluggish start to their pre-season, Arsenal have seemingly picked up the pace with back-to-back 4-1 wins over Millwall and Watford respectively. 

Chelsea have also picked back-to-back wins. They had to dig deep last time out against Bournemouth though with a couple of late goals from 19-year-old Albanian youngster Armando Broja and academy product Ike Igbo turning around a 1-0 deficit to a 2-1 win.

These teams traditionally provide action-packed games. This being a friendly doesn’t take away the edge. We fancy them to have a go at each other and we feel both teams will score in a game that should produce a bucketload of goals.
