Arsenal Know They Can Beat Chelsea - Cech Fires Hot Shots Ahead of Gunners' Clash with the Blues

Arsenal are over their Chelsea hoodoo and know they can beat their London rivals, Petr Cech has claimed ahead of the Gunners' trip to Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Petr Cech insists Arsenal know they can beat Chelsea on Sunday and continue bouncing back from their "slap in the face" defeat at Liverpool.
 
The Gunners suffered a demoralising 4-0 hammering at Anfield before the international break but atoned last time out by beating Bournemouth 3-0 at the Emirates.
 
Arsenal look to continue their recovery against the Premier League champions on Nissan Super Sunday, but haven't beaten their west London rivals at Stamford Bridge since October 2011.
 
However, following their recent FA Cup final and Community Shield victories over Chelsea, Cech is adamant there is nothing for the Gunners to fear.
 
"We have to draw a line under what happened and move forward," he told Sky Sports.

"We played Chelsea in the Community Shield and in the FA Cup final last season, so we know we can beat them. They know they lost two games against us that they were not happy to lose, so this is something we have to use to our advantage."
 
Defeats at Stoke and Liverpool have left Arsenal four points off the pace in the Premier League after their first four games.
 
After reflecting on those defeats, and praising the Gunners' response against Bournemouth, Cech stressed the importance of claiming back-to-back wins to stay in contention at the top of the table.

"The games we played at Stoke and Liverpool didn't go the way we wanted," he added.

"The performance at Stoke was much better than the result, because we had enough chances and opportunities, but we couldn't find the final pass or finish moves off.

"It was not the result we wanted or expected, and probably deserved. Liverpool was a big slap in the face, it wasn't acceptable for a club the size of Arsenal and the team that we are.

"We had to really make sure we put things right against Bournemouth and the reaction from everyone was brilliant. The determination and intensity was there against Bournemouth, the way we played was more like it.

"Chelsea have the same objective as us, they want to challenge for the title so it's a big game this weekend.

"If we want to be close to the top of the table after two defeats then we have to win the big games and this is the first opportunity for us to do so."

Scary News About Your Cellphone

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
