Arsenal will host Chelsea on Sunday in one of the most inviting matchups of the Premier League holiday fixtures. Both teams are coming into this match hungry for a win. Chelsea dropped its Boxing Day match to Southampton 2-0, and has now lost five of its last seven matches. Arsenal started the Mikel Arteta era on Boxing Day as well, drawing Bournemouth 1-1 on the South Coast to continue a bad trend—the Gunners have just one win in their last 11 matches.
Certainly, Arsenal fans will look for a win in Arteta’s home managerial debut, while Chelsea wants to at least maintain its hold on fourth place.

Arsenal vs. Chelsea: Preview, recent form, odds, upcoming fixtures
Arsenal (Last 5 Premier League matches: LWLDD) managed its third result in the last four matches, which is a positive. Yet the draw against Bournemouth brought Arsenal’s record to a very un-Arsenal-like 5-9-5. While Arteta may not be able to lift Arsenal back to the Champions League rung of the table this season, fans will look for more wins and soon, and doing it against its London rivals at home would be a welcome development.
Chelsea (Last 5 Premier League matches: WLLWL) has been either feast or famine of late. The Boxing Day loss was in part due to a three-man back line that worked against Wolves but didn’t work against Valencia in Champions League play and certainly didn’t work here. Chelsea certainly looked better against Tottenham Hotspur in its previous match out.
The William Hill oddsmakers see this as fairly even, calling Chelsea +130 road favorites (wager $100 to win $130), placing Arsenal at +185, and setting the draw at +275.
