chelsea vs arsenal Tip Reason:

After starting the season so strongly, Chelsea looked to be a club in crisis during the dark winter months. A string of poor results put Maurizio Sarri under increasing pressure, and the situation finally came to a head in the Carabao Cup Final as goalkeeper Kepa refused to be substituted in extra-time, instead getting into a blazing row with his manager. Somehow, this actually seemed to help Sarri out. They may have lost the final, but Kepa’s petulance saw support in Sarri rekindled, and the results soon followed. Chelsea have only lost two matches since that final, winning 10 times in the process. Unfortunately, The Blues do seem to have hit something of a downturn in form towards the end of the season. They have failed to win five of their last six games in normal time, relying on a penalty shootout to get past Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League semi-finals and failing to beat Leicester on the last day of the Premier League season. Arsenal have had their issues under Unai Emery this season too. They lost a trio of consecutive league matches back in April and ended up finishing outside the top four. All of their Champions League qualification hopes now rest on this final, but fortunately for them they have a Europa League specialist at the helm. Unai Emery won the competition three times on the trot with Sevilla between 2014 and 2016, making him the most successful manager ever in this competition. This season he has guided Arsenal to 11 wins in 14 Europa League matches, including stunning victories both home and away against Valencia and Napoli. One thing that can’t be ignored is their defensive record away from the Emirates, though. The Gunners have conceded 31 goals in their last 18 away matches, and combined with their high scoring attacking force, this has resulted in some very entertaining matches. In fact, 20 of their 27 competitive away matches this season have ended with at least three goals being scored. Chelsea are no strangers to high scoring matches either, with seven of their last 10 Europa League games seeing at least three goals. Combine this with the fact that five of the last seven Europa League Finals have been high scoring as well, and backing Over 2.5 Goals here looks a great bet. In the end, we’re expecting Emery’s Europa League experience to shine through here. Arsenal have been the much more impressive side in the latter stages of this competition, so we’re going for a 2-1 win for the Gunners for our correct score prediction. We’re also backing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to get on the score-sheet in Baku, with the Gabonese marksman netting 31 goals in 50 appearances for Arsenal this season. Eight of these have come in 11 Europa League outings, including a hat-trick away to Valencia in the semi-finals, so he looks a top choice for our anytime goalscorer predictions.
