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 16 and lost only 5 of the 26 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Highbury was just last season, in October 2004, as they swept to an impressive 4-0 win in a Premiership match.
