Arsenal desperately need a result when they host Chelsea on Boxing Day as they flirt closer with the relegation zone.
Arsenal were beaten by Everton in the league last weekend, conceding a Yerry Mina winner on the stroke of half-time.
They were also thrashed in the EFL Cup, losing 4-1 at home to Manchester City, with Alex Runarsson having a nightmare in goal.
Chelsea ended a run of two consecutive defeats with an easy 3-0 win at home to West Ham United last Monday.
Thiago Silva opened the scoring, with Tammy Abraham scoring twice late on.
Premier League form: Arsenal W0 D1 L4; Chelsea W3 D0 L2
Premier League top scorers
Arsenal – Pierre Emerick Aubameyang & Alexandre Lacazette 3 goals each
Chelsea – Tammy Abraham 5 goals
Chelsea took four points off Arsenal last season, including a very late 2-1 victory at the Emirates with Abraham scoring the winner.
Arsenal got revenge in the FA Cup final though, recovering from a goal down to win 2-1.
