Arsenal.com's Nick Teale uses the Bettorlogic form lab to analyse the statistics ahead of Monday's Premier League trip to Blackburn Rovers.
It's four years since Arsenal last suffered a Premier League defeat to Blackburn Rovers.
And since that 1-0 loss on February 26, 2006, the Gunners have performed exceptionally well against the Lancastrians.
In seven fixtures Arsène Wenger's side have averaged 3.57 goals per game, collecting 19 out of a possible 21 points. They have only conceded five times in those matches, and have netted on 14 occasions in the last three meetings.
Rovers' home form this term helped them to surpass last season's points tally with five games to play. With two fixtures of the campaign remaining, Blackburn are within touching distance of a top-half finish.
Victory for Arsenal will guarantee they finish at least third in the Premier League, but only three teams have taken maximum points from Blackburn at Ewood Park this term.
Chelsea and Manchester United were both held to draws and 33 of Rovers' 44 points this season have come at home. Sam Allardyce's side have also scored 68 per cent of their goals at Ewood Park.
But, while clashes between Arsenal and Blackburn have produced an average of 4.29 goals per game over the last four seasons, Rovers' most common scoreline this term is 0-0.
Allardyce's side have averaged 1.22 points per game this campaign but that has slid 39 per cent to 0.75 points per game in the 12 fixtures El-Hadji Diouf hasn't started. The midfielder has missed Rovers' last two fixtures due to tonsillitis but could return against the Gunners on Monday.
In terms of goalscoring the Bettorlogic form lab shows that Rovers score 21 per cent more goals with David Dunn in the starting line-up. However, they concede 1.72 goals per game compared with 1.28 when he doesn't start.
Finally, there has been 992 goals scored in the Premier League this season. Could the 1,000 come at Ewood Park this Bank Holiday weekend?
