Arsenal take on London rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in Saturday’s Premier League lunch time kick-off.
The Gunners will go into the game on the back of a disappointing 2-1 defeat at the hand of Dinamo Zagreb in midweek in the Champions League.
However, Gunners striker Theo Walcott, who scored in midweek, insists the team will continue in their fine Premier League form when they travel across London to take on the Blues.
“I think we need to play with no fear,” Walcott told Arsenal.com.
“You can see how Chelsea have started the season, no one has given them any respite on the ball at all, and I think we need to be exactly the same like that.”
“We’re playing with confidence, I know we had that result the other day, but in the Premier League we’ve been getting positive results.”
“Chelsea need to react in a good way, so they are going to need to come for us and that could play into our hands maybe.”
“Everyone will be fighting for it – we want to have a different result to in previous years there.
“People say [the win in August] was only the Community Shield, but the Community Shield is a competitive match. It’s always nice to win these big games.”
“You remember what you did right and the positives from the game come out from it. We just need to do the basics again – we need to do the right things with everyone on it and [doing] their job defensively as well.”
“We know that we can keep clean sheets. That’s important in the Premier League now and you’ve seen it with our record.
“It will be a tight game, I’m sure, but we need to make sure we take our chances. That’s key.”
