Chelsea vs Arsenal Betting Tips: Havertz to stake his claim for Tuchel's men against the Gunners
January 5, 2022
class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Having discovered his goal-scoring touch in recent Premier League games, Al Hain-Cole is backing the Blues record signing to fire past Arteta's men
Chelsea’s attacking players will be aiming to earn themselves a place in this weekend’s FA Cup final line-up when Arsenal visit Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
Although he has contributed a number of assists in recent high profile matches, Timo Werner has only scored one goal in his last 10 league appearances for the Blues.
The Germany international is therefore a relatively long 9/2 (5.50) shot with bet365 to open the scoring and priced at 6/4 (2.50) to strike anytime.
Indeed, Thomas Tuchel may opt to rest Werner and offer a chance to Olivier Giroud, who is a slim 21/20 (2.05) bet to find the net against his former team with a first goal since February.
Alternatively, Kai Havertz could return to lead the line after missing out completely on last weekend’s 2-1 away win over Manchester City.
The club’s record signing has scored three goals in his last three league appearances and is priced at a reasonably generous 15/8 (2.88) to strike anytime here.
At the other end of the pitch, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will also be determined to offer a reminder of his own capabilities in front of goal after featuring in just one of the last five league matches due to illness and team rotation.
Having scored both goals in the Gunners’ win over Chelsea in last season’s FA Cup final, he could offer strong value at 6/1 (7.00) first goalscorer and 21/10 (3.10) anytime goalscorer odds should he be restored to the team.
Alexandre Lacazette will also be hoping for a recall after starting as a substitute in his first game back from injury against West Brom last weekend, and can be backed at 9/4 (3.25) to rediscover the form that saw him strike six times in eight games prior to that lay-off.
However, Nicolas Pepe has made a strong bid for keeping his own place in the side after scoring three times in his last five starts, and is on offer at 13/5 (3.60) to extend that form with another goal at Stamford Bridge.
