Arsenal have Something to Prove at the Bridge!

Arsenal have Something to Prove at the Bridge!

Chelsea vs Arsenal

The Gunners need a win now more than ever following their FA Cup disaster that saw them suffer a humiliating defeat to Championship club Nottingham Forest.

Of course, a simple victory won’t do for the Arsenal live betting faithful. However, a convincing win against Chelsea in a high-stake semi-final match in the Carabao Cup should ease the pressure on Arsene Wenger and show that the online gambling embarrassment they endured at the City Ground was worth it.

Wenger rested most of his regulars in the FA Cup in preparation for this big football betting encounter, so the Gunners should be at full strength when they take on the Blues.

Pre-match betting odds still favour Chelsea to win, with handicap betting putting them at -0.75 @ 1.87. However, it should be remembered that their Premier League meeting a fortnight ago—and the one before that—ended in a draw.

There will be some difference this time though, as Wenger will be serving the second game of his touchline ban. This means that the French manager can’t do anything but watch in the stands while his Gunners play.

Whether Arsenal will commit the same mistakes they did against Nottingham remains to be seen, but history isn’t on the visitors’ side considering that Chelsea ran riot with a 3-1 scoreline the last time Wenger was banned from the touchlines at the Bridge.

If there’s any silver lining for Arsenal, it’s the fact that Chelsea also seem to be out of form as seen in their goalless FA Cup stalemate with 13th-placed Championship outfit Norwich City.

This game is just the first of a two-legged tie between the two, so fans might see and feel some cautiousness as they both aim to keep the game as close as possible. Arsenal have the motivation to win here and will certainly look for an upset, but Chelsea, as always, won’t be a walk in the park—not now or maybe ever.
