Arsenal coach – Arsène Wenger
“I don’t deny that history is against us with Chelsea. The thing about top teams is that they make history and they change history. The thing about top teams is that they make history and they change history. We’re the two unbeaten teams in the Premier League and Chelsea have one advantage on us because they have more wins.
“They are the team to chase because they are top of the league at the moment. They will be one of the teams who will go for the Premier League title this season and we want to be one of them as well. That’s why the confrontation on Sunday will be so important.”
On last year loss 6-0 for his 1000th match at the head of the team..
“If football was just a repeat of the past then you wouldn’t play at all because it would be too predictable. We have an opportunity to put things right on Sunday, so let’s take it. We want to show character and huge determination to do well on Sunday. That’s why I expect a big performance from my team. We have an opportunity to do it in a big game against Chelsea.”
On Cesc Fabregas..
“I personally love Cesc as a player and a person because I got him here at a very young age.. You will always have very fond memories when you have educated a boy like that and have given him the chance. I think he is a great player but what we want is to beat Chelsea, not to beat Cesc Fabregas”.
“There’s a lot of room for improvement with him because, he’s just 23. He’s not used to this position and you can see that he’s improving every game, little things that are important and vital to be successful”.
