London derby : Arsenal vs Chelsea
Arsenal failed to score for the first time this season when they lost to Sunderland 1-nil in round 13 of the English Premiership and will now meet Chelsea who have only conceded just one goal at home and seven away.
Arsenal has conceded four goals at home and like Chelsea are still to lose or draw at home.
The Blues have managed to score in every match so far and have scored 3 or more goals in seven matches.
Chelsea currently top the ladder and their London rivals dropped to third only after that loss to the Black Cats.
A win for Chelsea will extend its lead over the Gunners to 11 points whilst a win for the Gunners will help narrow that gap to five points.
Briefly here are the stats for the two teams so far in the league:
|Failed to score||0||1|
|Ave. goals scored||2.5||3.0|
|Ave. goals conceded||0.6||1.3|
|Biggest win||Chelsea 5 - 0 Blackburn||Everton 1 - 6 Arsenal|
|Biggest loss||Wigan 3 - 1 Chelsea||Man City 4 - 2 Arsenal|
|Ave. goals scored||2.9||4.0|
|Ave. goals conceded||0.1||0.8|
|Ave. goals scored||2.2||2.3|
|Ave. goals conceded||1.2||1.6|
Arsenal is only unbeaten at home because it hasn't met any decent team at home yet. The only team that came close I think would be Spurs but even then maybe not challenging enough. This will be it against Chelsea.
Thanks Colin, I think its going to be an interesting match whatever happens between the two teams who are also scoring many goals and conceding just a few.
