Chelsea vs Arsenal Bet Builder Tip and Match Predictions

Bet of the day tips

Chelsea will look to all but confirm Champions League football for next season with a win at home to Arsenal tonight, but they do have the FA Cup final this weekend so Thomas Tuchel might make some changes to his starting 11.

Arsenal are down in ninth place in the table but can move above Everton with a win tonight, although they would have played two games more than the Toffees as the race for the Europa League looks set to go all the way to the end of the season.

Last time out, Chelsea grabbed a late winner to beat Manchester City 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium and Arsenal ran out 3-1 winners against West Brom despite playing a much changed side which seen the likes of Tierney, Lacazette and Aubameyang on the bench. We can expect at least two of them to be back in the starting line-up tonight.

Arsenal have won just six of their last 14 league matches and were beaten in the Europa League semi-final by Villarreal recently, so Mikel Arteta needs his side to have a strong end to the season.

RESULT: Chelsea to win

Even though they have the FA Cup final on Saturday, Chelsea will want to confirm their Champions League place as soon as possible and then they can concentrate on the Champions League final against Manchester City. Mason Mount was not involved against Manchester City but could be back in the side tonight, along with Kai Havertz, who is having a good end to the season. These are exactly the type of matches that Arsenal struggle in and it is hard to see them getting a result at the Bridge tonight.


SHOTS ON TARGET: Hakim Ziyech 2+

Chelsea are expected to dominate this match and they will want to keep up their good form going into the FA Cup final. There are probably also one or two places still up for grabs in Tuchel’s starting 11. Ziyech plays in one of those positions and he is often in and around the box. He averages over 2 shots per start in the league and if can get a couple on target against a west Arsenal defence tonight, then that is perfect for our bet builder tip.



The German made a slow start to his Chelsea career but he is firing now, and has come into form just at the right time for his manager. He scored twice in the win against Fulham and although he isn’t prolific in front of goal, he could get a chance to start up front tonight, just like he did in that match against Fulham.


TO BE BOOKED: Kieran Tierney

Arsenal’s first-choice left-back has been one of the bright sparks in another disappointing season but he will be up against some quality opposition tonight, and might have to make one or two tackles to break up play. A lot of Chelsea’s attacks come from wide and if Mason Mount is drifting into Tierney’s channel he could be left isolated. He doesn’t get booked often, but this looks a good opportunity to add a Tierney booking to our bet builder tip.
