Bet of the Day: Another tight affair as Arsenal host Chelsea

Nick Murphy | 24 January 2018

London rivalry resumes at the Emirates

Arsenal and Chelsea will face off for the fifth time this season when they meet in tonight’s Carabao Cup semi-final second-leg.

The Gunners frustrated their West London opponents a fortnight ago by claiming a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge.

That result was the fourth successive draw between the two clubs this season.

Antonio Conte has only gotten the better of Arsene Wenger once in seven meetings since being appointed Blues manager.

With a place at Wembley at stake tonight, the Coral News Team are expecting another tight contest.

Coral’s Bet of the Day is Arsenal and Chelsea to Draw over 90 minutes at 12/5.

First-half stalemate

Neither side will want to give anything away in the first-half.

The last four fixtures between the two clubs have produced no goals inside the opening 45 minutes.

With that in mind, Under 0.5 Goals in the First Half looks generously priced at 9/5.

Ozil on the scoresheet?

Following Alexis Sanchez’s move to Manchester United, Mesut Ozil is now Arsenal’s main man.

The Germany international shone in the Gunners’ 4-1 victory over Crystal Palace at the weekend. He’s bagged two goals in his last four games at the Emirates and should be afforded an even freer role this evening.

Ozil is 3/1 to Score Anytime for the hosts, with 9/1 saying he bags the First Goal in the contest.
