Why Arsenal are slight favourites against Chelsea



The big game on Saturday is the London derby between Arsenal and Chelsea at the Emirates (12.45pm KO, Live on Sky Sports 2), and the Gunners look a great bet at  2.2 with Betfred and Paddy Power to emerge victorious
Arsene Wenger’s side are on a roll, and come into the game unbeaten in all competitions this season.
They thrashed Coventry 6-1 in the Capital One Cup in midweek, and before that were unlucky not to come away with all 3 points in their 1-1 draw with defending champions Manchester City at the Etihad.
Prior to that they had notched impressive league victories against Liverpool and Southampton, thrashing the latter 6-1.
They have also so far conceded just two goals in five games in the top flight and are looking better and better with each game.
Their opponents do sit top of the table at present – four places above them – but  Roberto Di Matteo’s men have not faced any of the major sides in their league games so far and were held 0-0 in their last away game at QPR before struggling to beat Stoke 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.
I think they will find in hard to deal with an Arsenal side on a serious upward curve, and fancy the Gunners to win this 2-1 at the 12 on offer with bet365 and Betfred.
Lukas Podolski has made an impressive start to his Arsenal career and looks worth a punt at 7 with Paddy Power to net the opening goal.
Fellow new signing Santi Cazorla looks worth a saver in the same market at the 11 on offer with Paddy Power as he has done nothing but impress since his move to the Emirates.
