Chelsea: Lampard previews Arsenal trip in Premier League
Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic is out for revenge as he prepares to take on Arsenal for the first time since suffering a knee injury in the FA Cup final earlier this year. Pulisic missed the first three games of the season after his injury at Wembley.
Pulisic endured a rollercoaster of a game in the FA Cup final in his last appearance against Arsenal.
The American winger scored after just five minutes of the game to give Chelsea the lead, but was forced off through injury just after the second-half began.
It was his second major injury in the space of just six months, and halted him in his tracks after an impressive spell of form.
Today, he will likely be part of the first-team squad to face Mikel Arteta’s struggling Gunners, and is eager for revenge.
Arsenal ended up winning the FA Cup, cancelling out Pulisic’s goal with a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang double.
But since then, they’ve been appalling and have struggled this season.
The Gunners are currently sat in 15th position in the Premier League table after a dire start, with just 14 points from 15 games.
And today, Pulisic is hoping to pile on the misery for Arteta, though he admitted he is expecting a tough game.
“We want revenge from that match of course,” he said.
“It’s always a good feeling to beat them but we want to get back at them after that one.
“I don’t know if I would say it’s a good time to play them.
“We are not going to look at them any less because of their recent form.
“It’s never an easy game against Arsenal, and they are still a good team.
“It’s a big day. They are going to want to come out and beat us so we have to be ready for the challenge.
“Chelsea against Arsenal is always a big match so we are ready.
“We are coming off a win and we are going to be confident going into the game.”
