Ahead of their massive clash with Arsenal, Gary Cahill has ominously warned the rest of the Premier League that Chelsea are feeling good once again, according to the Daily Express.
The Blues are going into the game at Stamford Bridge off the back of only their second win of the campaign in all competitions. But, the manner of their 4-0 victory against Maccabi Tel Aviv appears to have restored the confidence lost following their shaky start, as Cahill admits he’s seen a difference in his teammates (via Express).
“We’ll go into training in better spirits than we have been off the back of a win,” he said.
“Everybody will be happier, more lively. We know the situation in the league so we’ll flip straight back to that and we know this is a huge game,” he added.
Although the Gunners may have lost some confidence following their defeat to Dinamo Zagreb on Wednesday, it is Arsene Wenger’s side that have made the much better start in the top flight.
While Jose Mourinho’s men sit just above the relegation zone, Arsenal have bounced back from their opening day defeat to West Ham to sit fourth in the table.
But if their Champions League fortunes are anything to go by, there could well be a result that makes Arsene Wenger’s side’s start look much more ordinary, while also handing the Blues’ hopes of retaining the title a major boost.
