On Friday Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta, has revealed what his players need ahead of their Premier League clash with Chelsea on Sunday evening.
Arteta said that Arsenal players need support from the club’s fans ahead of the Chelsea match at Emirates Stadium following their Premier League defeat to Brentford last weekend.
The Spaniard saw his team get beaten 2-0 in their Premier League opener against Brentford last Friday.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Arteta said, “In moments when there is certain negativity around the place, you need your fans and your supporters more than ever.
“They have always been with the team and I have no doubt that on Sunday, they are going to be right behind the team. If there is one thing that the team needs, it is exactly that.
“If they really want to help the team, there’s not going to be a better medicine for them than to feel [the fans] very close with the right energy and supporting them and being behind them and the team is going to try their best.”
The kick-off time for Arsenal vs Chelsea is 4.30 pm
