Arsene Wenger: Arsenal v Chelsea is still a big game despite 19-point gap

first_imgArsene Wenger insists Arsenal’s meeting with Chelsea on Sunday remains a big game despite the travails of the Blues this season.Reigning Barclays Premier League champions Chelsea travel across London to the Emirates Stadium a massive 19 points behind the Gunners, who sit top of the table on goal difference.A 2-0 victory over Arsenal in September is one of just six league wins all season for last years’ title winners, with Guus Hiddink now at the helm following Jose Mourinho’s sacking.Wenger’s side have already proven they now have the steel to beat their main rivals – with victories over Manchester United, Manchester City and Leicester already secured.And the Frenchman believes the visit of Chelsea is another chance for his players to show Arsenal can win their first title in 12 years.“It’s another game where people look at us and see how we behave,” he said.“Even if Chelsea are not in the best position, look at their squad. It’s a big game because of the quality of the players on the pitch.“It has a big importance to us as well. We play at the Emirates and know how important it will be to win this game.” 1 Arsenal and Chelsea last_img
