1st Goal Chelsea

Arsenal vs Chelsea 26.12.2020

These are tough times for Arsenal and a Boxing Day fixture against London rivals Chelsea only makes things tougher. Arsenal are winless in their last 7 league games, having lost 5 and drawn twice. This has left them languishing in 15th place, their worst position at this stage of the campaign in over two decades. Chelsea are coming from a big 3-0 win over another London rival in West Ham and will fancy another derby win here. Arsenal have conceded first in 3 of their last 4 matches while Chelsea have opened the scoring in their last two fixtures. We therefore fancy Chelsea to score first in this game and the match to produce more than 2 goals in total.
