Former Chelsea midfielder Gus Poyet believes that the Blues’ fixture with Arsenal on Sunday provides a great opportunity for them to reaffirm their title credentials, report talkSPORT.
Poyet needs little introduction. The Uruguayan made 105 appearances for the Blues between 1997 and 2001, he knows the club like the back of his hand and is well within his rights to discuss current affairs.
That is despite the controversy that may leave many Chelsea fans holding a grudge. Notably the move to arch-rivals Tottenham and starving Charly Musonda of game-time as Real Betis boss. We’ll let that slide.
Poyet has been looking ahead to Chelsea’s clash with Arsenal at the weekend, which promises to be a tough contest between two strong sides.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Poyet revealed that he feels as though Arsenal are in turmoil and he believes that it’s affecting the player’s performances on the pitch:
“Chelsea are stronger now, Arsenal have too many issues, too many problems, we saw that in the game yesterday (against Cologne). The fans aren’t happy, it’s coming to a point now where it’s difficult for the players to perform.”
Poyet added while talking to talkSPORT that he feels Chelsea can lay down a marker with victory on Sunday:
“This is a great opportunity for Chelsea to prove they can go on and win the league again this season.”
