I do not really think that Arsenal are going to play as badly against Chelsea did when last we made the journey to Stamford Bridge back in March. That 6-0 drubbing was the low point of the season and the fact it was against Jose Mourinho on what should have been a special day for Arsene Wenger is probably one the reasons why the Frenchman has declared it to be the worst day of his Gunners career, as reported by Sky Sports.
But the Frenchman also claims that it produced a great response from his players that saw Arsenal finish the season strongly and claim a Champions League spot once again. However, we do not want to have to respond to another beating and Wenger will surely change his approach for this away game.
To be honest, Arsenal have looked more resilient this season and despite another long injury list, we have the players to make this a lot harder for Chelsea. Flamini has the discipline and aggression to sit and protect the back four, while Alexis Sanchex and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain give the team a lot more energy and work rate in the middle.
Then you have the technical ability of Wulshere and Ozil with the pace, power and movement of Welbeck to give the Chelsea players something to worry about. So if we start strongly and play to our own strengths and, of course, be careful not to concede early on, then I really think we can avoid the disaster of last season.
