Sky Sports have revealed its prediction for Wednesday night’s Premier League game between Chelsea and Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues have been backed to beat Arsenal 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Lewis Jones wrote for Sky Sports: “This fixture gave me one of my betting highlights of the season when Arsenal surprised many by beating Chelsea. It was the perfect example of sticking with what you believe when the world is telling you the exact opposite. Am I following in Arsenal once again? No chance.

“Chelsea are managed by Thomas Tuchel not Frank Lampard now and all their key performance data shows they now have a clear identity that revolves around gaining control of the match and limiting the opposition to little space between the lines. Arsenal try to do the same but don’t have the tactical nous or personnel to pull it off.

“A home win will be a popular selection with punters – but I would advise ignoring the 8/11 with Sky Bet and concentrate on Chelsea to win and under 3.5 goals in the match (Chelsea to win 1-0, 2-0, 2-1 or 3-0) at an odds-against price of 13/8.

“From the 16 wins Tuchel has overseen since taking charge, 15 of them have been accomplished with one of the aforementioned scorelines. So if you fancy the home win, it’s certainly the way to go rather than just simply take a very skinny price.”

JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: Chelsea 1-0 Arsenal
