Premier League: Chelsea v Arsenal


However this match turns out for Arsenal it’s hard to imagine it leaving deeper emotional scars for the Arsenal manager than the last time these two sides met when Chelsea put six past the Gooners in Wenger’s 1000th match in charge.

Much has changed in the time the odd but likeable Frenchman has been in charge but one thing that has not altered much at all are Wenger’s tactics which are, almost unfailingly, ‘short pass, short pass, short pass, one – two on the edge of the box, shot’.

It is these tactics that have made Arsenal easy to play against for the other top sides and Chelsea, with the much shrewder Jose Mourinho in charge, should win this one.

Expect Cesc Fabregas to have a big impact on this match because that’s just what happens, isn’t it?


  • Jose Mourinho has won five and drawn one as Chelsea boss against Arsenal.
  • Arsenal have lost just one away game since they got hammered 6-0 by Chelsea last season.
  • Chelsea won all five home matches against top six opponents last season, scoring 15 and conceding just 2.
  • Chelsea have won 25 of their last 30 home matches in the Premier League.
  • Chelsea have scored at least twice in their last five matches against Arsenal.
  • Since the 09/10 season Arsenal have played 25 times away against top 6 teams, winning just 3, drawing 6 and losing 16.
  • They were also losing at half time in 16 of those matches. 
  • Chelsea at home since the 09/10 season against top 6 sides: P25, W16, D4, L5.
