Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger does not feel Chelsea's struggles or their decision to part company with Jose Mourinho will make this weekend's Premier League meeting any less
Wenger and Mourinho shared a feisty rivalry, which manifested itself both on the touchline and during media conferences, before the Portuguese left Stamford Bridge in December amid a disastrous title defence.
"We have to be prepared for a battle because Costa gives you a fight. After that, it's down to the referee” -Wenger
"We have to focus on our performance. It's another game where people look at us and see how we behave"
"It will be an intense game, as usual in the Premier League. Overall, I think because of the qualities of the players on the pitch and what is at stake for both teams"
Arsene Wenger added that Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez should both be fit for Arsenal's London derby against Chelsea
"Ozil certainly will be available and Sanchez, the next two days will be decisive, but I think this time he will make it"afternoon.
