History of the Arsenal v Charlton Athletic fixture

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 15 and lost only 5 of the 25 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Highbury was less than a year ago, in February 2004, the Gunners carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Premiership match.
