Chelsea are looking more and more certain to lift the Premier League title this season, but the champions elect are still considered underdogs ahead off their trip to the Emirates this Sunday evening, according to Odds Checker.
Our form since the turn of the year has been phenomenal, and we are currently playing some of the best football the Emirates has ever seen. We are the in form team in the Premier League at the moment, and have been storming up the table over the last few months.
Chelsea still have a commanding lead, but the quality of their football has dipped dramatically as of late. They looked like running away with the title in the first few months of the season, but they have relied on more than a little luck to hold onto their lead more recently.
The Blues have still been picking up points in the last few games, despite arguably being outplayed by the likes of Manchester United, Stoke City, and even Queens Park Rangers.
The odds just go to show how far Jose Mourinho’s side have fallen recently, as well as how fantastic our current run form has been. The likes of Olivier Giroud, Mesut Özil, and Alexis Sanchez have been firing us to victory, and if it weren’t for a slow start to the season we would more than likely be challenging for the title.

Our favourites tag doesn’t necessarily mean we will get the win against our London rivals, but it does say something about the quality of our football at the moment. It also suggests this is a fantastic chance for Arsene Wenger to end his poor run against Mourinho managed sides, but we will need to be at our best to do so.
