Having both gone unbeaten over the course of their three festive fixtures, collecting five and seven points respectively, Arsenal and Chelsea round off what has been an extremely busy programme by locking horns with each other at the Emirates Stadium.

Our Kickoff predictive algorithm can find just 2% to separate the victory chances of the two sides and it is easy to see why when you consider that the Gunners boast 16 wins in 20 top-flight home games, whilst the Blues have triumphed 11 times in 16 trips at this level of late, so a draw (28% chance) stands out.

Last season’s score

The last meeting between this pair in North London proved to be an extremely significant one, with a 3-0 half-time deficit causing Antonio Conte to switch to three-at-the-back in a move which ultimately resulted in 13 consecutive wins on the way to securing a Premier League title.

Given the tough recent schedule, it would be unwise to expect either team to be at their best in this encounter, with 1-1 (13% chance), 1-0 (11% chance) and 0-1 (10% chance) installed as the three most likely scorelines in what promises to be a close game.

Top betting tips and predictions

Although they are not particularly renowned for being involved in low-scoring contests, six of the last ten Arsenal matches in the top-flight have actually served up under 2.5 goals (56% chance), as have eight of the previous 12 Chelsea fixtures at this level.

Alexis Sanchez (13% chance) has been heavily involved in the Gunners’ best attacking work recently, so the Chilean is amongst the favourites to break the deadlock here, along with Alexandre Lacazette (14% chance), Alvaro Morata (16% chance) and Eden Hazard (13% chance).
