Both Chelsea and Arsenal were undone by late goals this weekend. Chelsea was fortunate to lose in the same matchweek as Manchester United, keeping the fourth-to-fifth-place gap at five points, but now Wolves have crept up to be level on points with United and are threatening to break into a Champions League place. For Arsenal, the draw was better than Chelsea’s loss, except wins remain elusive for the Gunners. They’re now in 10th place with a negative goal differential, tied on points with Everton and Newcastle squads which, at present, have even worse goal differentials. 

Amid that somber backdrop, the London rivals take the field at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday, both eager for a momentum-changing win.

Chelsea vs. Arsenal: Preview, recent form, odds, upcoming fixtures

Chelsea (Last 5 Premier League matches: LWDWL) lost its three-match unbeaten streak over the weekend, losing to Newcastle on a late goal let in from former Arsenal player Isaac Hayden. Chelsea’s still in good position to finish in a Champions League place, but the team has eight losses on the season already. There’s not too much room remaining for error. 

However, Chelsea did beat Arsenal 2-1 in a recent matchup on Dec. 29, spoiling Mikel Arteta’s home managerial debut with two late goals to complete the turnaround. 

Arsenal (Last 5 Premier League matches: DLWDD) did it again. They got a brilliant goal to take the lead—this week, it was from Gabriel Martinelli, who tapped in a Bukayo Saka cross at the stroke of halftime—only to make a defensive lapse and give up a goal. That draw is the third in Arteta’s first five matches as manager. Arsenal now has just two wins in its last 15 matches, and four wins in its last 21 matches. It had a third of its total wins for the season to date in its first two matches. 


Chelsea’s a -129 favorite (wager $129 to win $100) according to the William Hill oddsmakers, with Arsenal getting +350 underdog odds and a draw coming in at +275. 

Upcoming Fixtures

Chelsea, Saturday, Jan. 25 at Hull City (FA Cup); Saturday, Feb. 1 at Leicester City (Premier League)

Arsenal, Monday, Jan. 27 at Bournemouth (FA Cup); Sunday, Feb. 2 at Burnley (Premier League)
