Arsene Wenger has described Arsenal’s 6-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea as ‘horrendous’ but the Frenchman is confident his side can turn the tables when they travel to Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Wenger’s side were humiliated by their rivals on his 1,000th game as Arsenal manager last season.
And despite an unbeaten start to the Premier League campaign, the Gunners are already six points adrift of Jose Mourinho’s side this term.
‘Last year was a horrendous day,’ said Wenger ahead of his side’s trip to Chelsea. ‘We never forget it, but we have an opportunity to put it right.
‘We are hugely determined and hungry to do that and I am confident we will take the chance to do it.’
A rampant Chelsea scored three goals inside 17 minutes in their March fixture while Arsenal were reduced to 10 men when referee Mark Clattenburg mistakenly sent off Kieran Gibbs after team-mate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain handled on the line.
