Chelsea Wary of 'fantastic' Arsenal

28 May, 2017, 02:39 | Author: Lula Armstrong

Eden Hazard believes Chelsea can lay down the challenge to their rivals for next season by completing a Premier League and FA Cup double on Saturday. I think the club always saw my job, during pre-season and in that period, and trusted in my job.

'So you are always a medal short and you will always find someone who takes it'. But either way you get a medal, loser or victor. "You come to my home, you will be surprised", Wenger told the BBC. "No, what I want is to win the next game", he said this week. I have first to earn it, although you get a medal, loser or victor. You would not even guess that I am a football manager, apart from the fact that a football game is on. "I just want to enjoy my football".

Although the saga over Wenger's contract, which is due to expire once the season is over, has yet to reach a conclusion, he has already indicated he will carry on in management even if he does leave Arsenal.

Up front, Wenger has been alternating between Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud so it remains to be seen whether Wenger will opt for the Englishman or the Frenchman, although Welbeck looks more likely to start against the Blues.

That inexperience creates one more question mark around Mertesacker, who has also admitted he doesn't know if he's fit enough to last 90 minutes.

"I am not a back looker". It depends on my health.

Interestingly, three of those have come against fellow London clubs and with Arsenal hitting form at the right time - one defeat in nine since adopting a 3-4-2-1 formation - there's no reason to feel as if they're the underdogs. Laurent Koscielny is out of the final after his red card, Gabriel Paulista will be absent through injury and there are doubts over Shkodran Mustafi's fitness.

The final should always be the last game of the season - Jose Mourinho would be having kittens if he'd had to deal with our run-in that year! We won the double and I made the England squad for the World Cup in Japan and South Korea. "It's true that in neutral opinions Chelsea will be favourites but we have gone into finals like that as well".

"For that reason, I was lucky to have a group of players who put themselves in Chelsea and my ideas of football and we put ourselves in a position where we could secure a fantastic title and celebrate". The German has been back in full training since February after recovering from knee surgery, but hasn't even played a game with the under-23s until now. "We won, maybe without deserving it, but we won it", Wenger added.
