After going each of his first eight games in charge unbeaten, Graham Potter finally came unstuck as Chelsea manager with a 4-1 away defeat to his former side Brighton last time out in the Premier League on Saturday, with his side scoring two own goals at the Amex. The Blues did bounce back in midweek however, with a 2-1 win over Dinamo Zagreb to secure top spot in Group E and book their place in the Champions League last 16 and Potter will be looking to make it four wins from his seven Premier League games against Arsenal with three points at Stamford Bridge.
The Gunners made it 10 wins from their opening 12 Premier League matches with a 5-0 drubbing of Nottingham Forest on Sunday, the first time that Arsenal have won league home game by 5+ goals since Arsene Wenger left the club. Mikel Arteta’s men have won their last four Premier League London derbies, last winning more consecutively between April and October 2013 (5) and will be looking to record three straight wins at Stamford Bridge for the first time since April 1974.
Arsenal have scored more goals in the opening 30 minutes of Premier League games this season than any other side (11), while they’re the only side yet to concede in this timeframe. The Gunners are also one of three sides yet to concede in the final 15 minutes of games (along with Brighton and Southampton), netting five goals themselves.
