Chelsea vs. Arsenal has always been a terrific rivalry through the years, with each side enjoying periods of dominance over their London rival at different points.

Sunday represents a crucial derby between the two rivals, as Chelsea host the Gunners in a pivotal fixture that will have ramifications for both teams' ambitions for the season.

The Blues are currently in third place, just a point ahead of a Spurs side who is quietly putting themselves into a great position to snatch a Champions League place—although the Blues can extend their advantage over Spurs if they can win their game in hand against Southampton on Wednesday.

The Gunners are already seven points behind Chelsea, and that gap could be as much as 13 points by the end of play on Sunday, which could leave their hopes of a top four place in tatters, especially if Spurs can beat Manchester United a little later on Sunday in the other massive game on Sunday in the Premier League.

Over the years, this fixture has provided many great moments that have entertained us immensely.

When asked to devise a list of the five greatest moments, it is quite tricky, as each fan will have a personal view on each moment.

So it is inevitable then, that there will be disagreements with the following five classic moments that I have selected, but that is fine. I will gladly debate the moments omitted from this list in the comments section below, so please feel free to get your points across.

I'll add some honourable mentions before we get started...
