Arsenal prepare to entertain Blackburn Rovers at Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Gunners are clearly on top, having won 33 and lost only 8 of the 56 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Emirates Stadium was less than a year ago, in March 2009, as they swept to an impressive 4-0 win in a Premier League match.
