Arsenal Urged To Prove Point Against Chelsea

Reports are out claiming that former Arsenal star Charlie Nicholas believes Arsene Wenger’s side can make the Premier League title race ‘interesting’ with a win over Chelsea this coming weekend.

The Gunners sit 10 points behind Jose Mourino’s Blues with six matches remaining and although Nicholas does not expect the north Londoners to clinch the title, he suggests the fixture is suited for a ninth-straight win.

“It’s high time that Wenger and Arsenal proved a point against Chelsea – I just think it’s Arsene Wenger’s time to say ‘we are getting closer’,” Nicholas told Sky Sports.

“Chelsea are going to be champions, even if Arsenal win this, but this is the first time in a long time I’ve gone into a Chelsea match thinking Arsenal will adapt to whatever happens.

“They need to win the game to make it interesting, but at the same time they don’t want to get caught out in the first half-hour of the match, because when Chelsea go in front, they don’t lose.

“That’s just a fabric of Jose Mourinho – he’s absolutely the best at managing a lead to get the result he requires, like he did against Manchester United.”
