Game Details

- Chelsea is unbeaten in eight straight league games against Arsenal, with five wins and three draws in that span. Arsenal's most recent league win in this fixture was a 5-3 triumph in 2011, when Robin van Persie scored a hat trick.

- Arsenal hasn't scored in 482 minutes of league play against Chelsea, with the Blues posting clean sheets in their past five meetings. Only once before -- vs. Liverpool -- have The Gunners gone six straight Premier League games against a single opponent without scoring. Arsenal's last league goal against Chelsea was scored by Theo Walcott on Jan. 20, 2013.

- As strange as this sounds, Chelsea has the longest current unbeaten streak in the Premier League at six games (two wins, four draws). The run coincides with Guus Hiddink replacing Jose Mourinho as manager.

- In an admittedly small sample size, Chelsea is averaging 2.2 goals and 1.7 points per game under Hiddink, compared to 1.1 goals and 0.9 points under Mourinho.

- Chelsea has actually had more possession this season than Arsenal (56.6 percent to 56.3 percent). But Arsenal is completing a league-high 83 percent of its passes, with Chelsea ranking sixth at 80 percent. Arsenal has played the lowest percentage of its long balls (passes over 35 yards) forward at 14 percent, and Chelsea has the sixth-lowest rate at 19 percent.
