Game against Arsenal comes at flawless time for Chelsea: Costa

Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Willian will miss Chelsea’s clash with Arsenal on Saturday, but hinted that Pedro may well feature at Stamford Bridge, according to the Daily Express.


Arsenal beat Chelsea 1-0 earlier this season to win the Community Shield. Rooney is a fantastic player when he’s not scoring goals or when he is.

Who are you tipping to claim all three points on Saturday?

“I have nothing more to say about this situation”, Wenger said when asked if he regretted that bust-up.

As Chelsea linger in 17th place in the league, with four points out of a possible 15, defeat against arch-rivals Arsenal could leave their hopes of defending their title in ruins. The attacking players defended much better than before, they created a compact zone and reacted very well to the moments when they lost the ball.

“‘They organise like Far West duels – at this time we are going to fight, bring a translator to help us'”.

“I focus on what I love which is football and respect everybody and all the rest doesn’t affect me”. “I want Man City, Man United and Arsenal to lose in the Premier League but I don’t want them to lose in the Champions League”.

“There’s an easy way for them to think, which is: ‘We won four premier Leagues, three with him and one with his team, so this guy is not bad”.

By the time that Willian had put his side ahead, Chelsea had already squandered the chance to get into the lead when Eden Hazard blazed a fifth minute penalty kick high into the Shed End.

“It will be of use because we’ll go into training in better spirits than we have been off the back of a win“, the England worldwide told the club website.

But Wenger said: ‘Overall the numbers were quite good for us as long as we were 11 against 11. The Blues have been in woeful form this season and a 4-0 win mid-week would do wonders for their confidence, in what is a crucial game for both teams.


“We are on a good run in the Premier League and it is important now to look at that”, Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger said on Friday.
