1-0 to the Arsenal was the result the last time the Gunners hosted Chelsea as league leaders in the 2007/08 season.

That was the campaign where Wenger’s men had set the pace in the title race only to crumble in the end and finish third after Eduardo’s injury.

With Arsenal needing to avoid defeat on Monday to retain their place at the summit of the table, the magnitude of this fixture is no different from what it was six years ago.

But with four wins at the Emirates stadium since its opening in 2006, Jose Mourinho’s men have the best record of any visiting side at Arsenal’s new ground. Add the fact that Arsene Wenger has never defeated his Portuguese counterpart in a match and this may be a daunting task.

Indeed, the Gunners could do with this classic from 2007 where William Gallas was captain, Avram Grant was Chelsea boss and Adebayor was the leading front-man.

This may take you back to memory lane…
