The Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger is hoping for a positive result against their match against Chelsea. Arsenal would look to resurrect their premier league form against Chelsea in the London Derby.
In a recent interview, Arsene Wenger expressed his feelings about going into the match against Chelsea later today. He said:
“Of course, of course. I’m expecting it and I’m anticipating it.”
“I believe that on the day everything went against us and that we were not sharp physically.”
Furthermore, he added:
“It [the match against Liverpool] was three days before the end of the transfer window, that some had their heads half in and half out.”
“It was special circumstances a bit, you have to consider that.”
Both the team will not be with their full squads. Danny Drinkwater had recently suffered a calf injury. As a result, he will miss the match against Arsenal. Also, he will be out of action for a month. On the other hand, Mesut Ozil is doubtful for the match against Chelsea. According to the reports, he trained away from the squad yesterday. He is reported ill.
In the last two face-offs, Arsenal have had the edge over the Blues. They defeated Chelsea both the times, in FA Cup finals and Community Shield.
