Arsenal start a potentially make or break run of fixtures against London rivals Chelsea in the stand-out Boxing Day clash in the Premier League.

The Gunners have endured a woeful start to the season, languishing in 15th – just four points above the relegation zone after going on a seven-game winless run. 

And their task doesn’t get any easier as they prepare to host Chelsea, who sit just one point behind the top four in the Premier League after their 3-0 victory over West Ham last time out.
