Arsenal play host to Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon as Mikel Arteta takes charge of his first game at the Emirates Stadium.

The Blues make the short trip across London holding a three-point advantage over the chasing pack in the race for fourth position.

After picking up a point from his first fixture in charge at Bournemouth, Arteta suggested that his new side had exceeded his expectations given their previous indifferent performances.

However, while earning a share of the spoils at the Vitality Stadium was a respectable result, the Spaniard will know that the result needs to be the start of a positive turnaround at the club.

With the draw being the second stalemate in succession after holding Everton at Goodison Park, Arsenal head into the weekend sitting in 11th position in the table after recording just five wins from 19 matches.

There remains just an eight-point gap between themselves and their next opponents, however, and Arteta will regard the upcoming contest as a window of opportunity.

The former Manchester City assistant will also have been delighted to see Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang get on the scoresheet against Bournemouth at a time when the club captain's future remains up in the air. (Sports Mole)
