Chelsea look for redemption in Arsenal rematch

The Gunners, who have finished fourth in six of the past 11 seasons, lost 3-1 at Chelsea on Saturday to fall 12 points behind the league leaders.

Their manager said that his experience of disappointment during his playing career, including three Champions League final defeats, meant that he was well-placed to guard against complacency.

That was the most chastening moment of Conte's first season at Chelsea and the Italian, whose side have lost only one of their last 17 league games, said: "There are 15 games remaining and 45 points".

"That, for me, is something very important as a manager".

"The full-backs' positions, in not attending to the counter-attacks of Pedro and Eden Hazard, was alarming, and that's just being shrewd".

Hector Bellerin will nearly certainly start at right-back after sitting out the defeat to Watford and his pace down the right hand side could prove vital in setting up and preventing attacks. "We all talk to each other a lot and there's always a good atmosphere around the training ground.We've been out for dinner a few times already this season and it's great for team bonding".

Fans quickly spotted it and the Arsenal midfielder, who started at Stamford Bridge in Saturday's loss, retracted the "like" and publicly announced that it was merely an accident. We were 1-0 down and Chelsea are very good at defending and very strong in transition, on the counter-attack.

As a fixture, Arsenal against Chelsea may not have the neighbourly disdain of the north London derby or the historical cachet of Manchester United against Liverpool, but it's often a lot more fun.

"Chelsea were just so much better all over the pitch physically, mentally", said Mills on BBC Radio 5 live.

Following concussion protocols, a dazed Bellerin was forced off, with Wenger explaining, "He didn't know the score at the time". He's a really good man, a good boy. Arsenal will need to play three at the front and try to isolate Chelsea's centre backs as the pace and trickery of the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Alex Iwobi might open up spaces that their full backs can capitalize on. Today I'm pleased for his work, above all without the ball, defensively. He played with great attention and concentration. Yet four months later, despite the two sides similarities in terms of squad depth and strength, Chelsea are nine points ahead of Arsenal and cantering to the title.
