Sanchez equals Kanu's record at Arsenal

Join The Roar from 10:30pm AEST for live scores and commentary. The team that has less of these wins the title.

Arsenal have lost their last five away Premier League games versus Chelsea, their joint-longest away losing run in the competition against a single opponent (also 5 in a row vs Man Utd between 2009-2013).

Pedro, Davide Zappacosta Cesar Azpilicueta, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Michy Batshuayi all found the net for their side.

Sanchez has started two games so far after missing the opening weeks of the season through injury, and is only named as a sub after playing the full 90 minutes of Arsenal's 3-1 win over Cologne in the Europa League on Thursday.

Arsenal on the other hand are looking to find some form.


Alexis Sanchez, meanwhile, was one of two members of the regular starting XI alongside Nacho Monreal to start against the Bundesliga side after Wenger felt that it will help build match fitness. Despite getting off to a great start in the Europa League on Thursday, securing a 3-1 win over FC Koln, Arsenal's league form has been somewhat lacklustre as they now lie in 13th in the league standings, but it is still early days.

Chelsea have scored in 23 successive Premier League games at Stamford Bridge with over half of these (12) seeing them score three or more goals.

Those both came at Wembley in the FA Cup final in May and the Community Shield in early August.

If Arsene Wenger wants any hope of defeating Chelsea, he will need to play his strongest team, which he failed to do against Liverpool when he left Alexandre Lacazette and Kolasinac on the bench.

Wenger's men seem more motivated as of late, so expect an Arsenal side up for the challenge.
