  • Chelsea is unbeaten in nine of its last 10 meetings with Arsenal in all competitions.
  • Arsenal has won four-straight League matches at home SU.

Chelsea has found a bit of form under Guus Hiddink and is unbeaten in its last six games heading into the weekend. If the Blues want to climb the table, however, they’ll have to eliminate some of the Draws that have dominated their results. Four of Chelsea’s last five matches have ended in a draw, including last weekend’s 3-3 thriller against Everton at Stamford Bridge.

Despite a couple of underwhelming draws in their last last two games, Arsenal still sits at the top of the table on 44 points – ahead of Leicester on goal differential. The Gunners were held 0-0 by Stoke City at the Brittania Stadium last time out.

Arsenal has just four losses on the season, but one of those was a 2-0 loss to Chelsea in the reverse fixture back on September 19.

London derbies seldom lack entertainment and with Arsenal keen on keeping its place at the top and Chelsea eager to distance itself from the relegation zone, this fixture promises to be a highlight on the Premier League's weekend docket.
