Arsenal went through a rough stretch early in the 2020-21 Premier League season and likely will experience its worst finish in the standings since it was 12th in 1994-95. But since winning only two of 12 games from Sept. 28-Dec. 19, the Gunners have posted 11 victories and five draws over their last 21 contests, a span that began with a triumph over Chelsea. The Blues hope to exact revenge when they host Arsenal on Wednesday. The Gunners are looking to post their third straight clean sheet on the road, a feat they haven't accomplished since May 2013.
Kickoff from Stamford Bridge is scheduled for 3:15 p.m. ET. The latest Arsenal vs. Chelsea odds from William Hill Sportsbook list Chelsea as 0.5-goal and -118 money-line favorites, while the over-under for total goals scored is 2.5.

Top predictions for Chelsea vs. Arsenal
Green is leaning over 2.5 goals in Wednesday's matchup between Arsenal and Chelsea. The Gunners scored three times in their victory against the Blues earlier this season and also netted three tallies in Sunday's triumph over West Brom. Alexandre Lacazette, who scored in the win versus Chelsea, is tied for seventh in the Premier League with 13 goals and has tallied twice in two of his last five contests. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang trails Lacazette by three goals after recording seven in his last 10 league matches.
The Blues have eight players who have scored at least four goals and a quartet that is tied for the team lead with six in Premier League action. One of those four players is Timo Werner, who is tied for first on the club with 12 goals across all competitions. The 25-year-old German has scored in two of his last five overall contests following a 14-game drought, which has helped Green in his decision to lean toward the over on Wednesday.
