Kick Off – 16.00pm Sunday 24th January 2016 – Live on Sky Sports 1

Arsenal host Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday in a London derby in the Premier League, as both teams look to get back to winning ways after draws last time out.
Arsenal remain top of the Premier League, but only on goal difference after an uninspiring goalless draw at Stoke last time out. It could have been far worse for the Gunners though, as goalkeeper Petr Cech pulled-off a number of good saves to deny the side from north London.
The Gunners will be looking at this game as an ideal opportunity to get back to winning ways after consecutive draws in the Premier League.
Chelsea’s unconvincing season continued last time out, as they drew 3-3 with Everton at Stamford Bridge. Everton established a two-goal lead, before Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa struck two quick-fire goals to level the scores.
The Toffees looked to have snatched all three points in stoppage-time, as substitute Ramiro Funes Mori poked home. However, with one of the last kicks of the game the Blues equalised through John Terry, which on further viewing proved to be offside.
The draw leaves Chelsea still struggling in the lower reaches of the top-flight table and in 14th position in the Premier League.

Recommended Betting Tip
This promises to be a shoot out between two strikers in form, Giroud v Costa. With home advantage and the fact he is finally showing his true class we take Olivier Giroud to score the first goal 5/1 is available at William Hill.

Arsenal v Chelsea Match Prediction

For me I cannot look past an Arsenal win in this clash. Guus Hiddink may have lost just once in his second spell at the club, but the Blues have been really unconvincing this season, even under the Dutchman. Arsenal are very strong at home and should have enough quality to win this clash.
