Manchester United vs Sheffield United Odds and Spreads

 

With leaders Manchester City on FA Cup duty on Saturday, Arsenal took advantage to return to the summit with a 2-0 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers just a couple of hours later.

With City still having a game in hand, Arsenal probably needs five wins from five to stand a chance and face a big test of mettle with two London derbies up next.

Chelsea can still qualify for Europe and they will be desperate to put a hole in Arsenal’s title dreams to make up for that Wembley heartache.

Arsenal is the betting favorite at -204 odds to win the match against Chelsea. You can watch the game on FOX or stream it on FuboTV this Tuesday, April 23, at 3 p.m. ET.

Will Arsenal’s Attack Overcome Defensive Challenges vs Chelsea?

Historically, these two teams have played thrilling and tight games, but the Gunners, who have beaten the big teams at home this season, will have to be at their best against Chelsea to defeat them.

The Gunners lost only one of their last eight meetings with Chelsea, winning five, and we expect them to do it again but not without having issues at the back as they tend to concede many goals lately.

 

Arsenal and Chelsea Gear Up for a High-Octane Showdown

These sides battled out a thrilling 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge earlier this season, but Arsenal has held the upper hand in the last few seasons.

The Gunners have the best attack in the league with 77 goals scored in 33 games and 38 scored in 16 home fixtures.

Eight of the last 11 clashes between these rivals have seen both sides find the net while nine of their last 10 league games have seen at least four goals.

If you’re looking for a great value bet, a combo between a home win with at least three goals in the match is priced at -110 while Arsenal to win and both teams to score is priced at +175.

 

 

Cole Palmer Shines at Chelsea: From Man City Bench to London Star

Back in November, Cole Palmer declared he moved from his boyhood club Man City to West London in search of regular game time.

He made 25 appearances for Manchester City last season, of which just seven were starts. In contrast, he has already managed 25 goals for Chelsea this campaign, coming from an impressive 43 matches.

The $51m switch has seemingly paid off for Palmer and his employers. He is by far the best player for Mauricio Pochettino’s side and has scored the most league goals in a season for the Blues since Diego Costa also hit 20 in 2016-17.

 

 

Questions of the Day

Who could score for Arsenal against Chelsea?


Gabriel Jesus. He assisted Arsenal’s opener on Saturday and did score in this corresponding fixture last season.

Who will be Chelsea’s next manager?


Hansi Flick was the favorite to succeed Mauricio Pochettino, but he is now way back in the list at +2000 odds. The current favorite to take the helm is Julian Nagelsmann at +400.
