Arsene Wenger confident Arsenal will beat Chelsea

Arsene Wenger confident Arsenal will beat Chelsea

In an exciting London derby this Sunday, league champions Chelsea will play hosts to local rivals Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.

Well, if the Gunners are to execute a surprise away win, they are likely to have to do so without German World Cup victor Mesut Ozil.

And Wenger said his players were less distracted against Chelsea - and might even have won the game if they had not been inhibited by their memories of Anfield.

In contrast, Arsenal have endured a rocky period as a loss at Stoke was followed by a humiliating 4-0 defeat against Liverpool.

In fact, in the last 21 matches away to clubs in last season's top six, Arsenal have only picked up two victories. "We played Chelsea in the Community Shield and in the FA Cup final last season, so we know we can beat them", Cech told Sky Sports.

"I remember that game [the Arsenal loss] very well because it was a really bad game for us".

"Never in my life could I accept or understand that it is different away from home".

The Chilean has started just one Premier League match so far, and the summer saga involving Manchester City and a late transfer had plenty of people questioning his future. We were focused, determined, showed character and when we had the ball we tried to play every time.

Not surprisingly the 21-year old was criticised for his performance and given the lowest player rating by many, but I think that the Arsenal; fans at least should not be too hard on him. As Tribal Football report, the Italian has revealed in his pre-match press conference that he believes Arsene Wenger's men are right in the mix to with the title. With a bit more freedom we could have won this game with one or two goals' difference.

Hazard made his injury comeback last weekend in the Blues 2-1 over Leicester and featured off the bench in the Champions League clash with Qarabag.

"As always the key is to be much better defensively than we were at Anfield, and to be much more unsafe going forward". But it was important we didn't lose. I have to make the best decision for the team and the players, but he's improving a lot and is very close to being 100 per cent fit'.

Chelsea host Arsenal in the first part of Super Sunday today knowing a victory will heap more pressure on Arsene Wenger's shoulders.
