In 180 earlier confrontations between both team Arsenal managed to win 78 of them, Tottenham Hotspur 55.

Wenger and his men will be motivated to revenge their lost against Bayern Munich and show their loyal fans their qualities.
Highligted Player (Cech):
Petr Cech is a veteran goalkeeper who plays for Premier League side Arsenal. The experienced goalkeeper used to play for Arsenal’s fierce rivals Chelsea in the past and many people were shocked when he signed a four-year contract with the Emirates Stadium outfit on 29 June, 2015. Petr Cech was always struggling with injuries, but one definitely marked his career. During the clash between Reading and Chelsea the Czech goalkeeper collided with Stephen Hunt and, as a result, he suffered a skull fracture. This is the reason he has been forced to wear a protective headgear ever since. Petr Cech won four Premier League trophies with Chelsea, while lifting four FA Cup titles. However, in 2012 Cech won the Champions League trophy with the Blues and that is considered the highlight of his career. Petr is married to Martina Dolejsova (now Cechova) and they have a son Darmian and a daughter Adela.
