Arsenal face Chelsea in the Premier League at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
But how much do you know about the Blues?
Full name: Chelsea
Manager: Roberto Di Matteo
Club colours: Blue shirts, blue shorts, white socks
Nickname(s): The Blues
Three facts about Chelsea:
- Despite their name, Chelsea are actually based in nearby Fulham.
- Stamford Bridge has been the club's only ever home, where they have played since 1877.
- Ted Drake, a prolific striker with Arsenal, managed the Blues from 1952-61.
The classy midffielder was linked with a move to Emirates Stadium over the summer, but instead pitched up at Stamford Bridge. The Spaniard has probably been Chelsea's best player of the season so far, with his technical abilities in midfield complimented well by a handful of goals to his name. He is certainly one to watch at the Emirates.
