Arsenal.com's Nick Teale uses the Bettorlogic form lab to analyse the statistics ahead of Sunday's Premier League match.
Arsenal travel to Bolton on Sunday for the first of two back-to-back clashes with the Trotters.
Owen Coyle has recently taken over as manager at Reebok Stadium, charged with the task of maintaining the club's Premier League status.
Sunday's match will be his first in charge and Coyle already taken points from Arsenal this season. His former team Burnley held the Gunners to a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor in December.
But against bottom-six clubs Arsène Wenger's side have an impressive record. Since the start of the 2004/05 season the Gunners have only lost 12 per cent of such Premier League matches and collect an average of 2.24 points per game.
Andrey Arshavin has started nine Arsenal games against clubs fighting a relegation scrap and is yet to be on the losing side. In fact, the Gunners have collected 25 out of a maximum 27 points against bottom-six teams when the Russian has started. Samir Nasri is undefeated in 10 games.
Under former manager Gary Megson, Bolton did not enjoy the first half of their season. With 18 games gone their stats so far this term are not impressive. They've been conceding at a rate of 1.95 goals per game and have won just 22 per cent of Premier League games.
One player who has helped improve their statistics this season is Ivan Klasnic. The on-loan striker has only started seven games for the Trotters but he's their top scorer having hit the back of the net six times this campaign.
Bolton have only lost one of the seven games he has started and as a result pick up 43 per cent more points with the Croatian striker in the team.
Since the starts of the 2004/05 campaign the Trotters have won just five of 22 games at home to 'Big Four' opposition, conceding at a rate of 1.73 goals per game. In contrast, Arsenal have scored at a rate of 2.07 goals per game when visiting clubs in the bottom six over the same period of time.
