Arsenal 5/1 to KO the blues

Chelsea take on Arsenal in the London derby at lunchtime today (12.45pm KO) and the Gunners look value at 5/1 to come out on top.

There is not much to choose between the two sides on current form, and the stats suggest that Arsenal have a great chance against their arch rivals with Didier Drogba unavailable due to being suspended.

Drogba has scored 13 goals in 14 appearances against Arsenal in all competitions and their record against Chelsea with him playing is W1, D3, L10.

However when he has not played Arsenal have won two, drawn one and lost none.

The Gunners also have a striker in Robin van Persie who has scored an incredible 25 goals in 26 Premier League appearances in 2011.

He is in the form of his life and at 23/10 with Boylesports to score anytime during the 90 minutes has to be worth a punt.

There is no way in my book that Arsenal should be as big as 5/1 to win this, and they can be backed at that price with Betfred and Victor Chandler.
