FACT: Arsenal Stalemate Shatters Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge Scoring Record Under Conte

Arsenal played out an entertaining 0-0 drawagainst Chelsea on Sunday at the Stamford Bridge with pundits generally of the opinion the Gunners edged the game.

The barren result however means Arsene Wenger’s men are the first team to stop the Premier League champions from scoring in a competitive home game in Antonio Conte’s reign as manager.

The Blues failed to break down their rivals on Sunday, meaning they failed to net at Stamford Bridge under Conte, who took charge prior to the 2016-17 season, for the first time in 27 matches.

Arsenal, meanwhile, end a miserable defensive record at the Bridge. Prior to this match, the Gunners had not kept a Premier League clean sheet in their previous 12 visits and had conceded at least two goals in their most recent eight.

It was the first 0-0 draw between these two sides at Stamford Bridge since April 2005.
