Game Preview: Arsenal vs. Chelsea - Capital One Cup - October 29th, 2013

Arsenal vs. Chelsea - Matchup and Team LogosThe two of the most impressive teams in the English Premier League this season are crossing paths in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup (English League Cup) on Tuesday, October 29th, 2013 at Emirates Stadium in London.

After nine matches played in the EPL, Arsenal are in first place with 22 points and Chelsea are in second place with 20 points. Both teams are also doing well in their respective groups in the UEFA Champions League. It will be really interesting to see these two London teams go at it in the league cup, while probably resting some of the players that played on the weekend.

The odds for the upcoming match at Emirates are:

Arsenal: 6/4
Draw: 5/2
Chelsea: 13/8

The odds are very close. A 100 € bet on Arsenal could return 150 € in profit, while the same bet on Chelsea could return 162 € in profit.

The most likely outcome, according to the odds is a 1-1 draw, offered at 11/2.

Olivier Giroud is the favourite to score for Arsenal at 7/4, while Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o are the favourites to score for Chelsea at 21/10 each.

After a tough home loss to Borussia Dortmund in the UCL, Arsenal last played on Saturday in the EPL and grinded out a 2-0 win vs. Crystal Palace.

Chelsea destroyed Schalke with the score of 0-3 in the UCL and they followed that performance with a big last minute EPL win vs. Manchester City on Sunday.

Arsenal are playing at home and will have one more day of rest compared to Chelsea FC, who arguably have a deeper bench and a stronger momentum.

Should be a good game!
