Chelsea vs Arsenal match on England- Premier League, Date: Wednesday 12th May 2021, Kick off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET and Venue: Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea has a great opportunity in the middle of the week to underline their claim to the top four and could finish third.
The Blues have been excellent since Thomas Tuchel took office in late January. They rose to third place in the Premier League and are in the Champions League final and the FA Cup final.
Last weekend, Chelsea set their mark by coming back from a goal to beat Manchester City 2-1 away from home. It was a great result and it denied City a chance to win the league last weekend.
Chelsea has won 3 matches in a row and at home, their latest result ended with a 2-0 win over Fulham. Los Bleus have lost 3 times at home so far.
Arsenal rallied after being knocked out of the Europa League the previous week to beat West Bromwich Albion 3-1. This result means that West Brom has been relegated from the Premier League.
The Gunners have had a bad season by their standards and come into this game in ninth place, but can they have a good ending? Mikel Arteta’s team has won 2 matches in a row and scored 5 goals during this period.
On the road, Arsenal is undefeated in their last five matches and their last match was a 2-0 win over Newcastle United.

Chelsea vs Arsenal: Prediction
By far the side of the form of the two is that Chelsea and Arsenal have a poor track record coming here. Arsenal will still be able to spot potential European football next season if they win their remaining matches.
Chelsea showed last week that they have to be taken seriously when they beat Manchester City and it is very difficult to overtake them. Also, given that it is a London derby, Arsenal will surely put in a good effort.
It could be much closer than the position of the teams in the league suggests, but at the moment it is very difficult to face Chelsea, who look better in midfield and attack. Also, of course, Chelsea will want to avenge their loss to Arsenal earlier in the season.
Chelsea vs Arsenal: Betting Tips:
Chelsea will beat Arsenal by 1.70 (7/10)
