Arsenal Vs Chelsea 23rd Dec
Arsenal vs Chelsea predictions for Saturday’s pre season friendly in Beijing. Arsenal now concede a clumsy free kick from outside 30 yards or so. Oh and Costa spoils the opportunity as he gets penalised for a foul inside the box. Despite this they are the underdogs according to the bookies, so I think there’s value to be had in backing an Arsenal win at 9/5 along with a 2-1 correct score predictions.
It will be Chelsea’s first game of their Asian pre-season tour, whereas Arsenal will have played two games Down Under before flying to China. Arsenal played better in second half but it was always going to be a big task to get something out of the match with 10 men.
Arsenal were man down and a goal down Watch Arsenal vs Chelsea Live Streaming (Online) within first 25 minutes leaving them a mountain to climb if they were to make a comeback in this game. Shows how well Arsenal played that the Blues keeper nearly won man of the match. The Arsenal squad are probably a little bit further down the line when it comes to match fitness, having already played friendlies against Sydney, Western Sydney Wanderers and Bayern Munich over the course of the last two weeks.
Not as effective in the final third as he had been recently but few will care about a minor gripe. Chelsea gets its second title of the season, winning the FA Cup with a late goal from Eden Hazard. Chelsea earned some consolation for May’s FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal with a 3-0 friendly win over the Gunners in Beijing on Saturday.
Arsenal fans certainly didn’t, and nor did his manager – even if he was caught napping during Arsenal’s first. The last time the Gunners met the Blues was on January 24th, in a game that ended Arsenal’s incredible six-match winning streak – with Chelsea beating them 1-0.
