Arsenal welcome Chelsea at the Emirates in Saturday's London derby. The Gunners are looking to secure their first win against the Blues since the  2011-2012 league season.

Also in this highly anticipated game, the Gunners are looking for their first goal against their London rivals since the 2012-2013 league season.

As fans of both teams await what promises to be a thrilling contest, Completesportsnigeria.com's JAMES AGBEREBI takes a look down the history lane, highlighting SIX memorable games between Arsenal and Chelsea.

1. CHELSEA 2-3 ARSENAL (1999-2000 EPL)

This game was the highlight of Nwankwo Kanu's six seasons at Arsenal.

Arsenal Were two goals down, with 15 minutes remaining. Tnen Kanu scored a hat-trick to turn the game on its head and give Arsenal a dramatic win.

Chelsea took a 2-0 lead through Tore Andre Flo and Dan Petrescu in either half. But Kanu netted in the 75th, 83rd and 90th minute to earn Arsenal one of their best ever comebacks. 


After winning both legs in the league, Arsenal looked to be cruising against Chelsea in the second leg of the 2003-2004 UEFA Champions League after Antonio Reyes' first half goal to put the Gunners 2-1 up on aggregate (the first leg at Stamford Bridge ended 1-1).

But in the second half everything went South for Arsenal as Frank Lampard and Wayne Bridge scored to give Chelsea a 3-2 aggregate win and a place in the Semi-finals. 

3. CHELSEA 3-5 ARSENAL (2011-2012 EPL)

This was the last time Arsenal recorded a win against Chelsea in a league game.

Robin Van Persie who had his best ever period with Arsenal in the 2011-2012 season, bagged a hat-trick to mark a remarkable London derby for the Gunners at Stamford Bridge.

Frank Lampard gave Chelsea the lead before Van Persie made it 1-1.

On the stroke of half time John Terry gave Chelsea a 2-1 lead.

Andre Santos drew Arsenal level before Theo Walcott made it 3-2.

Juan Mata pulled Chelsea back on level terms, but a costly slip up by Terry gifted Arsenal the fourth goal with Van Persie pouncing and rounding Petr Cech before slotting the ball into an empty net.

Van Persie completed his hat-trick as he shot past Cech following a counter-attack by Arsenal. 

4. CHELSEA 6-0 ARSENAL (2013-2014 EPL)

What was suppose to be a memorable occasion for Arsene Wenger who was celebrating his 1,000th game in charge of Arsenal turned out to be a nightmare as his side was hammered 6-0 by Chelsea.

Samuel Eto'o gave Chelsea the lead, with Andre Schurrle doubling the lead.

A few minutes later, Kieran Gibbs was sent off in a case of mistaken identity.

Following the sending off, the goals rained in as a the trio of Eden Hazard, Mohammed Salah and Oscar (brace) got on the score sheet to complete the rout. 


Arsenal's last win against Chelsea was at last season's Community Shield inside Wembley Stadium which ended 1-0.

It was also Arsene Wenger's first ever win against Jose Mourinho.

The only goal of the game was scored by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who rifled in a left-footed strike into the top right corner.

6. CHELSEA 2-0 ARSENAL (2015-2016 EPL)

Chelsea put behind the Community defeat to Arsenal by winning 2-0.

But the game wasn't without controversies as Arsenal had two players sent off.

Gabriel Paulista was first given his matching orders following an altercation with Diego Costa before Santi Cazorla also received his second yellow for a foul on Cesc Fabregas.
