LONDON - Striker Ashley Cole believes that Arsenal will feel the full force of Chelsea on Monday.
Cole is confident Carlo Ancelotti’s men are more than capable of repeating last season’s 3-0 score line at the Emirates, especially with Frank Lampard, John Terry and Michael Essien back to full fitness.
The England left back said: “We’ve been disappointing in our last six games and it’s a big contrast to how we started the season.
“But we have a lot of big players back to fitness and it’s going to give us a boost.
“Any team who has their top players out is going to be affected.
“We’re fourth in the table - we have to get back on track and start winning again.”
Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti has claimed Arsenal are “afraid” of Didier Drogba, who has scored 13 goals in 13 games against them.
Cole, 30, admits the responsibility weighed on Drogba’s shoulders but insists the hitman is firing on all cylinders once again. (ANI)
