Two of the most decorated teams in England are set to reignite the fierce rivalry between them as Arsenal play host to Chelsea in another London Derby.
The Super Sunday Premier League tie at the Emirates Stadium is Mikel Arteta’s first home game and he would be hoping to make a lasting impression.
At the moment, the Blues are holding a three-point advantage over the chasing pack in the race for the fourth position.
However, having lost back-to-back games in the League, Frank Lampard’s men will be wary of completing a hat trick of losses.
Sunday’s encounter represents the 199th competitive meeting between the two clubs, with Arsenal registering 77 wins in comparison to 67 victories for Chelsea.
Neither side have been able to put together successive triumphs in this fixture over normal time since Chelsea recorded 6-0 and 2-0 successes in 2014.
