Chelsea v Arsenal: Join Ladbrokes for 25/1 on a Yellow Card

Please note that all odds referenced are correct at the moment of publishing (05:26 PM 08.01.2018) and are subject to change.

It wasn’t the best of weekends for Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal as they crashed out of the FA Cup at the hands of Championship side Nottingham Forest. Needless to say, fans are not happy in the wake of that 4-2 defeat but the Gunners have a chance to put that right this week.

It’s the semi final of the EFL Cup and as Arsenal make the short trip across London, a feisty affair could see this new customer offer from Ladbrokes prove to be very useful. The promo quotes enhanced odds of 25/1 and all it needs to trigger that price is at least one yellow card in the 90 minutes (18+ and T&Cs apply).

Close Call

The match odds for this first leg show Chelsea as favourites at best odds of 87/100 with MarathonBet while Arsenal are the outside option at a top price of 15/4 with Bet365. It could be closer than that but don’t worry if you can’t pick a winner because under this deal you don’t have to.

A single yellow card will activate those 25/1 odds and if the offer sounds interesting, here are the next steps.


As this is for new customers to Coral you can head across and take advantage, only if you are not an existing account holder. It’s a fast and easy process, requiring only basic information and when complete, it’s time to add some funds.

Deposit at least £5.00 but remember to avoid Skrill, Neteller and PaySafe as these are specifically excluded. Any other available method is OK and we suggest using a debit or credit card which should see your funds made available straight away.

When they appear in your account, it’s time to make that important bet.

Staking and Getting Paid

With funds at your disposal you can stake the fixed amount of £1.00 on this special bet of at least one yellow card to be issued when these two teams meet at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday January 9, 2018. You can watch the game, which kicks off at 8pm, live via Sky Sports if you wish and if a yellow card does land, here’s how payment works:

Coral will send through an initial payment in cash, based on a standard market price at the time the game kicks off. This should hit your account shortly after kick off while the balance, up to that quoted figure of 25/1, will arrive as free bet tokens within 24 hours.

There is a consolation too because, if there is no yellow card issued during the game, Coral will send through a free bet token worth £5.00. Those are the main points of this offer but you can check all terms and conditions on the Coral promotions page and please note that any free bet tokens issued by this bookmaker expire after 4 days.


The teams have already met this year in a game that gave us an entertaining 2-2 draw at the Emirates on January 3. It was a thrilling match but the key stat for us is the five yellow cards that were issued over the course of the game.

Of course, nothing is ever certain in football but this will be a hard fought game and the chances of at least one booking seem very high and if you agree, this new customer, price boosted deal from Coral could lead to some serious profits.
