All eyes will be on Stamford Bridge when Chelsea and Arsenal square off against each other in the North London derby on Saturday. Our sportsbook offers the best markets and live betting in the English top-flight league.
Chelsea Back on Track
Chelsea did well to crush Burnley 4-1 in their last league match, with the team regaining some much-needed confidence, but they need to keep progressing to climb to the Champions League berth.
Chelsea has been slightly more inconsistent, struggling in the opening weeks of the season before a run of three games without defeat has seen them rise to 11th going into the ongoing international break.
A victory won’t just mean three points, it’ll also mean you’ve been physically, technically, and tactically superior to Arsenal. That’ll give the players a lot of confidence, and Mauricio Pochettino can build on that.
Talking about their injury issues, both Benoit Badiashile and Trevoh Chalobah are major doubts, while Ben Chilwell and Wesley Fofana remain on the sidelines with injuries.
Arsenal Fighting for Title
The Gunners have enjoyed a fine start to the 2023-24 Premier League campaign, accruing 20 points from their first eight outings, leaving them second in the standings behind league leaders Tottenham because of goals scored.
This is the beauty of the Premier League. The EPL is so competitive that as soon as a team has the smallest drop in winning mentality and isn’t ready for the intensity of a match, they lose. This can happen here, but Arsenal has the upper hand on their opponents and is also unbeaten this season.
As Bukayo Saka should recover in time to take part in the local derby he is the player to watch and include in your Premier League player props. Defender Jurrien Timber continues to miss out with a knee injury, but apart from that, Arsenal should be fully fit for this clash.
Arsenal Has Great Record Against Chelsea
Arsenal has won their previous four encounters with Chelsea across all competitions, scoring 12 goals. Chelsea’s last victory at his venue came in 2018, winning 3-2.
We’ve seen at least three goals scored in nine of the last 12 head-to-heads. Arsenal is unbeaten this season, winning six in eight games and scoring 16 goals, while Chelsea won three games this term, netting 11 goals.

Chelsea vs Arsenal Best Soccer Predictions for Oct. 21
Arsenal enters this clash as the favorite, priced at +138 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest Premier League odds, while the goal line is set at 2½.
It is only one win and three points, but the impact of Arsenal’s win against Man City could be profound. It certainly sends a message to the team to keep believing in what they’re doing because they’re a fantastic group of players who can fight for the title.
Chelsea returned to winning ways against Fulham and Burnley, showing what they are capable of. They are a great team with European pedigree and can beat anyone in front of their fans. It’s risky to pick a winner, so we will focus on goals.
Questions of the Day
What are some soccer player prop bets for the Chelsea vs. Arsenal match?
We are talking about two of the best defensive sides in the league, but both possess amazing attacking lines. For that reason we expect both teams to contribute on the scoresheet and at least three goals in the match.
What’s a good player prop to bet for the Chelsea vs. Arsenal match?
Bukayo Saka is arguably the most consistent player for Arsenal and he’s the number one designated penalty taker in the team. He already scored four goals for the Gunners this season, so we expect him to find the back of the net on Saturday.
