Mikel Arteta Makes Big Claim Ahead Of Chelsea Arsenal Derby

Arsenal Manager has laid a huge claim ahead of their tie against Chelsea on Sunday

Arsenal will look to bounce back from an opening day demoralizing loss to newly promoted Brentford.

But it clearly won’t be an easy task as they will be going up next against a Chelsea side who recently reinforced their striking line with the return of their former striker.

The threats Lukaku pose being the in the frontline can’t be undermine as he has already proven to be a tough head in the Serie A before reuniting with Blues.

Ahead of the clash tomorrow, Arteta laid a bold claim in response to Lukaku being positioned as a threat against his side. Speaking in a press conference, Arteta shared his side already have plans in place to stop Lukaku.

Meanwhile, Arteta also claimed to have lost the Brentford game only because he had to suddenly leave out his best players due to Corona Virus complications.

“I am always very direct but there are some policies and medical privacies that I can’t forget,” Arteta explained. “I have to protect the club and I have to protect the individuals.

“For me it was simple. My best players had Covid, they cannot play. I had to put a team out there that is unprecedented in this league and take all the pressure off. The club will be always in front of me. I will do that again next time.”
