Marcel Desailly speaking ahead of the game said:

“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. All of what I said about Chelsea before can be brushed away if Chelsea beat Arsenal.

“A victory won’t just mean three points, it’ll also mean you’ve been physically, technically, and tactically superior to Arsenal. That’ll give the players a lot of belief, and Pochettino can build on that.”
