Wenger - Let’s continue recent run against Chelsea

Arsene Wenger

There are two ways of looking at Sunday’s game against Chelsea if you’re of an Arsenal persuasion.

The first - taking into consideration our recent record at Stamford Bridge - doesn’t offer much in the way of optimism.

Arsene Wenger, however, prefers to look to the fact that we have won three of our last four matches against the Blues as a better indicator of the way things stand.

“[Our record at Stamford Bridge is because] in recent years, Chelsea had a great team always and it was always difficult to win there,” the manager said. 

“But our record against Chelsea recently has been good. We won at the Emirates last year, we won the FA Cup final and on penalties in the Community Shield so let’s just continue to focus on the quality of our game and not too much where we play.

“Chelsea looked comfortable after 20 minutes [in midweek against Qarabag] but that doesn’t bother me. I think we need to focus on our performance and play our game.”
