Arsenal can move seven points behind fourth-placed Chelsea with a win tonight. However, the blues have won six of the past seven league meetings at Stamford Bridge, drawing the other. The reverse fixture at the Emirates was played just a few weeks ago, with Chelsea earning a 2-1 win.
What has been said?
Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard: “This league is so competitive.
“I know that they [Arsenal] are a good team with good players. There has been a change when Mikel Arteta came in, we must be on guard and at our best.
“His effect is very quick and sudden, we felt that when we first played them. He is a good coach and he will get time.”
What Frank Lampard told his Chelsea players about Arsenal game
Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta: “A lot of things have changed that are positive [since last month’s defeat by Chelsea].
“The way we have changed the energy with our fans has been massive. In terms of results we have been unlucky.
“I loved the first 30-35 minutes against them and how much we wanted to put them under pressure.
“They changed the system and started to defend deep, and physically it was harder to maintain that energy. Against Chelsea that is vital. We will go with the same intention.”
