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.
