Arsenal will hope to return to winning ways when they take on Chelsea later today in a Premier league encounter at the Emirates Stadium.

* Arsenal have won just one of their last 14 league games against Chelsea (D5 L8), with that win coming at the Emirates in September 2016 (3-0)
* Chelsea are looking to do the Premier League double over Arsenal for the fifth time, after doing so in 2005-06, 2009-10, 2012-13 and 2015-16. Only Liverpool and Man Utd (5 each) have done so against the Gunners this many times in the competition
* Only Liverpool (13) have kept more Premier League clean sheets this season than Chelsea (10), while only Fulham (2) have kept fewer than Arsenal (3)
* Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 12 Premier League London derbies at home (W9 D3), winning the last five in a row. Their last such defeat was in January 2016 vs Chelsea
* Arsenal have scored 20 goals in their seven Premier League London derby matches this season, twice as many as any other side
* Arsenal have lost two of their last three Premier League games, more than they had in their previous 17 in the competition (W11 D5 L1)
* Chelsea are looking to win four consecutive Premier League away games within the same season for the first time since December 2016 (a run of six)
