Arsenal vs Chelsea: It’s frightening, we’re now dealing with different animal – Ian Wright


Former Arsenal striker, Ian Wright, has expressed fear for the Gunners ahead of their Premier League clash with Chelsea this weekend.

Wright said it frightens him that Arsenal will face a completely different Chelsea side at Emirates Stadium on Sunday despite beating the Blues twice last season.

He believes Mikel Arteta’s side could be in for another demoralizing defeat against a ‘devastating’ Chelsea side who are likely to hand a debut to new signing, Romelu Lukaku.

Arsenal head to the game following a 2-0 defeat to Brentford last weekend, while Chelsea easily defeated Crystal Palace 3-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking on Ringer FC’s Wrighty’s House podcast, “Since Lukaku was linked, Romelu has been talking to me on a consistent basis, so I know it is happening but I’ve to keep quiet. All the time I think this is fine, but when I see how Arsenal got beaten against Brentford knowing that Romelu will be there.

“I knew that this was going to happen, watching how we play, seeing how Ivan Toney and Mbuemo dealt with our defence, let’s face it, Lukaku with the players he now has, it is going to be devastating against most defences.

“I know that Arsenal won twice against Chelsea last year and it did change Arsenal’s trajectory, Bukayo Saka came in, Emile Smith Rowe came in, We kind of started to create.”

He added, “We are now dealing with a completely different animal. We are dealing with one of these hybrid dinosaurs they created in one of those Jurassic Park films. We are dealing with a Chelsea team now that are so ready. We saw that when Thomas Tuchel got there, another elite manager.

“He sorted the defence out. And that you throw Romelu Lukaku into that mix, into a team that’s so confident, this frightens me. We have got Chelsea where they now think they can win the Premier League.”
