King of Stats: all of the numbers ahead of Chelsea v Arsenal

| 18.01.2013

After drawing at home to Southampton, Chelsea have now only won two of their last seven at Stamford Bridge, which will give Arsenal added hope of repeating their success of last season.

Below the King of Stats has noticed some other gems which may help punters make some profit from the London derby.

7 – Arsenal have won more away outings at Stamford Bridge than any other Premier League team. The Gunners can be backed at 16/5 to leave with another three points.

2 – Chelsea have scored at least twice in seven of their last nine meetings with Arsenal, including in their 2-1 success at the Emirates back in September. It is 4/6 that Chelsea net over 1.5 goals against Arsenal again.

2 – Theo Walcott has scored in two of his last three Premier League starts against Chelsea. Walcott is a tempting 7/1 to strike first if picked as a centre forward, with 11/5 available for him to score at any time in the 90 minutes.

7 – Frank Lampard has scored seven goals in just nine Premier League starts for Chelsea this season. Like Walcott, Lampard is 7/1 to break the deadlock, but is a slightly shorter 2/1 to bag at any time.

9 – Arsenal have conceded the fewest second-half goals in the Premier League this season. The price is 6/4 that the Gunners keep a second half clean sheet for the 15th time in the top-flight.

5 – Arsenal have a 100 per cent winning record this season in the games in which they have been ahead at half time. Arsenal are 6/1 to make it six by leading at both half time and full time here.

10 – In the last 10 meetings between this pair, the same number of goals have been scored between the 30th minute and the half-time interval. Eight of the 10 showdowns have also had a goal in this 15-minute period. It is 5/4 that at least one goal is netted in this block of time at Stamford Bridge.

12 – The number of clean sheets Chelsea have kept in the last 14 games that Martin Atkinson has refereed at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea are 2/1 to keep a clean sheet and it is 12/5 that they win without conceding.
