Chelsea fans are hoping they can continue like they let off this weekend.
Chelsea will face Arsenal in an important Premier League encounter this weekend. Marcel Desailly has backed his former side to beat the Gunners on Saturday.
The Blues have been a struggling unit so far and they struggled to win. Mauricio Pochettino’s side needs to show their best game if they look for victory against Arsenal.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are coming off two successive wins over Fulham and Burnley. The Blues fans are hoping they can continue like they let off this weekend.
If they win against Arsenal, it will be a great win for Chelsea and they can find momentum in Premier League. Desailly spoke to Gambling Zone via the Metro, “It looks impossible, but I’ll go for a 3-1 win [to Chelsea]”.
‘Why not? This is the beauty of the Premier League. As soon as a team has a mental drop and isn’t ready for the intensity of a match, they can lose. When Arsenal players arrive at Chelsea, they may believe that it won’t be as difficult as it would at Tottenham, City, or eventually, Man United.
‘Those kinds of stadiums get players ready for the battle. When teams come to Chelsea, they’ll think they can win, despite how talented their players are.
‘The mental preparation will automatically drop, even if you try to control it.’
