The Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny will be hoping that a few of the Chelsea players he and his team mates are due to face tomorrow will have an off day. Because the 24-year old is well aware that their players like Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard have more than enough ability to hurt any team at the moment.
The Poland international, in an Arsenal.com report, warns his team mates that the whole Chelsea team are in a good place right now, having made a great start to the season and seemingly having fixed the problems that held them back last season.
With Costa and Fabregas adding the cutting edge to their strong defence and all-round power, the Arsenal keeper knows that the Gunners will need to be at our best to knoch the blue boys off their stride and stop them opening up a nine point gap on us in the Premier League table.
Szczesny said, “Costa is incredible. His partnership with Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard has been incredible and, at the moment, he’s looking as dangerous as any striker in the world.
“We’ve got huge respect for him and we know how dangerous he is. I think he’s scored in most games so it’ll be a tough test.
“At the moment [Chelsea] are as good as you will get in Europe. They score goals and they’ve always defended very well so it’ll be a very tough test but it’s one that we’re looking forward to.
“Hopefully we can leave last season’s result behind us and show that we can get the result against them.”
Arsenal are one of the few teams in Europe who might be able to beat Chelsea, especially when he get into top gear as we did against Galatasaray, but if our performance levels drop we will be in big trouble. I think this is why Szczesny is trying to make sure that all of the Gunners know just how hard a task is in front of them at Stamford Bridge and that we will need to be on the ball right from the kick-off. But will even that be enough?
