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."

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage. Atten-ding seminars and reading books on marriage are good, I told her; but where you can know and be pr-oud of living confidently in marriage is when you enter into the reality of marriage. This is w…
