Premier League
Stamford Bridge
November 20, 1993

Chelsea boast one of the most enviable home records in European football but there was a time when Arsenal just didn't lose at Stamford Bridge.

Before Roman Abramovich joined forces with Jose Mourinho, Arsène Wenger oversaw nine consecutive Premier League games without defeat at the home of Arsenal's London rivals.

George Graham also had plenty of joy at the Bridge and our latest FreezeFrame image takes us back to November 1993 and a comfortable 2-0 win for the Gunners.

Alan Smith gave Arsenal the lead in the 27th minute and Ian Wright, well into his stride a year after joining the Club, added a second from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time.

Graham's team were somewhat depleted with Tony Adams a notable absentee at the heart of their defence. But they were good enough to keep out a Chelsea side which went on to finish in the bottom half of the table.

Arsenal eventually settled for a fourth-place finish in the Premier League - 21 points behind champions Manchester United - but they struck gold in Europe, lifting the Cup Winners' Cup in Copenhagen after Smith's goal beat Parma.

Arsenal team: Seaman, Dixon, Winterburn (Morrow 77), Davis, Linighan, Bould, Selley, Wright, Smith, Merson, Keown. Subs not used: Campbell, Miller.
