On Saturday 29 September 2012, Arsenal will host Chelsea in an English Premier League round six tie.
Looking forward to it
Chelsea’s Coach Roberto Di Matteo is looking forward to a win though he is fully aware of the challenge Arsenal will pose
-It is a big game every time Arsenal and Chelsea play each other. It is two teams in good form and I think it is going to be an exciting game, so I am looking forward to it, he said to chelseafc.com
Made an impact
-We are in good shape, good form and the spirit is good. I think we have a very good team that is capable of beating Arsenal. Didier Drogba has been a fantastic player for many years for this club but we have to move on.
Going into the game Di Matteo has stated his side will have to keep a close eye on Arsenal’s new signing Santi Cazorla
-He is a very exciting player to watch and has certainly made an impact in Arsenal's team. They have very good players already but he has probably been a highlight so far.
Haven’t changed my mind
-I said at the start that Arsenal are going to be challenging for the league and I am not sure anybody believed me, but that is the way I saw it so I haven't changed my mind.
-They have signed some very good players and they have been playing the same kind of football for many years and I think they are up there with the other teams, he concluded
The game kicks off at the Emirates Stadium from 1445hrs local time.
