Although London's top clubs don't have a traditional rivalry, the friction between the clubs and their fans makes it a mouth-watering derby.
A London derby involving these two clubs always creates a lot of excitement, tension and often a splendid display of football. From the days of Zola to Kanu to Drogba, most of the matches between these two clubs have generated several bookings and a few send-offs, on top of the on-field fracas.
Be it Chelsea's 5-0 demolition of Arsenal in 1998 or Kanu's quick-fire hat trick in 1999 that sealed victory for Arsenal or the infamous Carling Cup final that has since been renamed the "Snarling Cup final," each and every meeting among these two clubs from different parts of London has always been a show-stopper, and more so after the two clubs started competing with each other for the top honors.
In the following slides, we will take a look at the top 10 goals that define the rivalry between the blue and red-white parts of London.
