Wenger - How I assess Chelsea's title chances

We return to Wembley on Sunday for the first time since that unforgettable Emirates FA Cup final win against Chelsea - and Arsene Wenger has challenged his side to repeat that display.


Goals from Alexis and Aaron Ramsey secured us the trophy for a record 13th time, but the Blues have added some big names to their squad this summer.

"For us it is just a good opportunity to repeat the performance from the FA Cup final," Wenger said. "The two team will certainly go for the first trophy of the season with power and a desire as well to be ready for the championship, so that plays a part in it as well.

"I would say that Chelsea look like they have kept the basis of 95 per cent of their squad. They have added Bakayoko who is a very strong player, strong ball-winner, similar to Matic, maybe less distant runner but more of an impact player - but certainly they will fight for the championship again. 

"They have replaced Costa with Morata. Morata is maybe less of a goalscorer than Costa, but he can score and provide as well. 

"Against us in Asia, Batshuayi played very well. He is a young striker who is promising as well, so I expect them to fight again for the championship."
