Chelsea vs Arsenal

Now is probably a good time to play Chelsea. The board is in disarray after they lost their battle with their own fans for the rights to the stadum, John Terry is all over the papers for all the wrong reasons, and the team is suffering in terms of form, with manager Andre Villas-Boas struggling to come up with an attacking formation that works.

Arsenal, on the other hand, have both Thomas Vermaelen coming back, as well as an actual right-back in the form of Carl Jenkinson – it actually gives the defence a chance! They will not be being tested by Didier Drogba, who is suspended following his red-card antics last week, though Chelsea have a £50m replacement waiting in the wings…

Chelsea were taken to extra-time in the Carling Cup, so there may well be some tired legs out there on Saturday morning, whereas Arsenal were barely put through their paces by a lacklustre Bolton, which even afforded Wenger the chance to rest a few players.

Previous matches between these two London sides have resulted in mass brawls, which may well happen again this time around, with Ashley Cole set to take centre-stage once more. Chelsea will be organised, but Arsenal will dominate possession. It should be an interesting game…

We think this game has a draw written all over it (available at 4.0 with Paddy Power). If we had to guess, we’d say it will be a score-draw 1-1 (7.5 at Ladbrokes).

We know its going to be a contentious game, and we think that Chelsea will be up and out of the starting blocks early. Expect a few BIG challenges early doors. With this in mind, we’re highlighting the fact that you can bet on Ashley Cole to be carded (red or yellow) in the match at 2.75 (Bet Clic). Looks good to us…
