On May 2, Arsenal and Chelsea faced each other in a crucial match at Emirates Stadium that could affect their Premier League standings. Arsenal, despite being in a good form under manager Mikel Arteta, has recently struggled with three draws and one defeat in the league. They are looking to rekindle their Premier League title bid after being overtaken by current champions Manchester City. On the other hand, Chelsea has suffered five straight defeats under interim boss Frank Lampard and is in desperate need of some good form.

Arsenal was the favorite to win the game at -160 in the Arsenal vs Chelsea odds. With a tight game expected, the odds for at least four goals (Over 3.5) were at +200, while Arsenal was seen as more likely to win by at least two goals (Spread -1.5) with odds of +165. Chelsea was unfancied in this field, with wide odds of +380 suggested for just a win by a solitary strike (Spread -0.5).

Before Arsenal‘s recent run of three wins and a draw, they had won seven straight games in the Premier League and were leading the table for most of the season. However, their defeat to Manchester City saw them being overtaken by the champions. A victory against Chelsea was crucial for Arsenal‘s title challenge hopes.

On the other hand, Chelsea has suffered from a lack of cohesiveness as a unit after a large influx of new players. The confusion caused by that was one of the reasons why former boss Graham Potter lost his job. Lampard had not been able to resolve the problem, and Chelsea‘s problems have come in front of goal. They had drawn twice and lost four times in their most recent EPL run.

Arsenal emerged victorious with a comfortable 2-0 win, thanks to goals from Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli. The win saw Arsenal climb to second place, one point behind Manchester City with two games left to play. Meanwhile, Chelsea remains in 12th place and is out of contention for a spot in the top four.

In conclusion, the Arsenal vs Chelsea game was a crucial one for both sides, with Arsenal seeking to rekindle their title bid and Chelsea looking to end their run of poor form. Arsenal emerged victorious, and the win may prove crucial in their title challenge hopes. Chelsea, on the other hand, will be looking to rebuild under a new permanent manager and come back stronger next season.
