Chelsea have won 10 consecutive Premier League games and need to win our next four games to match Arsenal’s record of 14 consecutive Premier League wins.

Arsenal legend Martin Keown was part of the Arsenal team that won 14 games in a row in 2002 and he believes Chelsea can break the record.

Keown told Daily Mail: “Arsenal won 14 on the bounce and I think Chelsea will beat that.

“I played in that record-breaking Arsenal side and remember our last defeat before that run was against Newcastle in December 2001. After the game, Bobby Robson said that we needed to learn to lose.

“It gave us a real determination that we weren’t going to be defeated and we remained unbeaten until the following October.

“I see a similar determination in this Chelsea team – particularly in the way their manager celebrates and the enthusiasm he is bringing.”

Chris Sutton also thinks Chelsea can break the record.

Sutton told Daily Mail: “It would be a nice record to break and a feat nobody could have seen them achieving at the start of the season but it will not be going through the players’ or manager’s minds.

“They have a good run of games up next against Crystal Palace, Bournemouth and Stoke and they will be looking to extend their six-point cushion.”

Liverpool legend Jamie Redknapp also believes Chelsea can break Arsenal’s record of 14 consecutive Premier League wins.

Redknapp told Daily Mail: “They have a fantastic chance and given their current form you would say yes.

“Their next three matches are winnable but equally it wouldn’t surprise me if Crystal Palace picked up an unusual result when Chelsea go to Selhurst Park on Saturday.”
