Footymad preview History of the Blackburn Rovers v Arsenal fixture

Blackburn Rovers prepare to entertain Arsenal at Ewood Park at lunchtime on Saturday, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 22 of the 57 previous games, with the Rovers winning just 20.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Ewood Park was just last season, in August 2010, with Arsenal inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the Rovers in a Premier League match.
