Graham Potter was handed a 4-1 defeat by his former club, Brighton, last weekend. The Blues bounced back with a 2-1 win against Dinamo Zagreb in the UCL, but that came at a cost as Ben Chilwell hurt his hamstring, joining Reece James, Wesley Fofana, and Kepa Arrizabalaga on the injury list.

Arsenal to win @ 2.70 odds
Booking code: ZMTFLG
Arsenal have won their last four Premier League London derbies and three of their last four PL games against the Blues. The Gunners have also enjoyed their recent trips to Stamford Bridge, winning two of the last three. Mikel Arteta’s side have won four times in six away league games this season and will go into this derby brimming with confidence.
Both teams to score @ 1.68
Booking code: ZMTMKT
Chelsea have scored in all but one of their last 11 Premier League games, while Arsenal have scored in all of their Premier League matches so far. With this in mind, we have decided to back both teams to score. Over 2.5 goals (1.88) might also be worth a punt as eight of the last ten meetings between these teams have produced three goals or more.
