CHELSEA - ARSENAL
Chelsea are bound to be a little drained after the amazing 4-4 draw with Tottenham in midweek, but have the option to freshen up the side, with Mikel, Ballack and Anelka all available.
It is over four years since the Blues lost at Stamford Bridge, some 77 Premiership starts. The only significant difference since Jose left, is that they have yet to prove that they can win, the really big games
Arsenal have blown their lead at the top of the table, with four consecutive draws, like Chelsea, they remain very difficult to beat and let's be certain about one thing, with all the big teams set to meet again, the title is not going to be decided today.
We have Chelsea, who never lose at home, facing a Gunners side that has only tasted defeat once all season in the league.
For me, the draw is far and away the best bet on offer and a 1-1 scoreline looks the most likely outcome.
5 points draw 3.25 general quote.
1.5 points 1-1 correct score 6.50 +
