Arsenal prepare to entertain Charlton Athletic at Highbury on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Gunners are clearly on top, having won 14 and lost only 5 of the 24 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Highbury was less than a year ago, in March 2003, with Arsenal running out comfortable 2-0 winners in a Premiership match.
