Only Liverpool have won more away points than Chelsea, but at home they’re really not up to much, having won 17 points - the same as Brighton, Sheffield United, Wolves and, indeed, Arsenal, and only three more than relegation-threatened Watford and Aston Villa. The question is whether Arsenal, who won their first away game of the Premier League season back in August and have repeated the feat just once since, are the team to expose this, particularly with goal-conjuring predator Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang suspended.

In other news, Arsenal are the division’s top drawers, 47.8% of their matches so far having ended in stalemate, but there has only been one goalless Gunners game in all competitions (compared with six 2-2s). Chelsea meanwhile really don’t do draws at all: only one in the league since August, and even the draws they have had (in all competitions this season: 2-2, 1-1, 2-2, 4-4, 2-2 and 1-1) have been quite fun.
