Arsenal have endured a rather wretched recent record when visiting Chelsea in recent seasons, with the short trip across the capital to Stamford Bridge having often proven difficult.
There have been few visits as harrowing as a memorable clash in March 2014 however, as Arsene Wenger’s 1000th game in charge of the Gunners ended in misery at the hands of their London rivals.
Chelsea ran riot to score twice inside the opening seven minutes, before Arsenal were reduced to 10 men just moments later, with Kieran Gibbs bizarrely sent off in a case of mistaken identity after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s conceded a penalty for a handball on the line.
Chelsea were four goals ahead at half-time and their 6-0 win was the biggest of Jose Mourinho’s career in the Premier League, whilst it was also the first time the Blues had hit six in a game against the Gunners.
Here is Chelsea’s 6-0 battering of Arsenal from 2014.
