Division One
August 14, 1971


Arsenal welcome Chelsea to Emirates Stadium on Sunday for a game which might not be 'must-win' but is certainly 'must-not-lose'.

A win would take Arsène Wenger's team to within five points of the Premier League leaders with a game in hand but a defeat would leave them 11 points adrift.

To keep things nice and positive ahead of the biggest game of the season so far, our FreezeFrame image shows a thumping home win from the Highbury era.

Arsenal were the kings of London and England in August 1971 after clinching the League and FA Cup Double just three months earlier.

They got their championship defence off to a fine start too, beating Chelsea 3-0 on the opening day of the season at Highbury.

Our FreezeFrame image shows Ray Kennedy and George Graham challenging for a high ball. Pat Rice, the current assistant manager to Wenger, looks on in the background.

Arsenal team: Wilson, Rice, McNab, Storey, McLintock, Simpson, Armstrong, Kelly, Radford, Kennedy, Graham
