Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois feels that now is a good time to play Arsenal.
Arsenal travel to Stamford Bridge on Sunday and the Belgian feels that Chelsea are in a good place ahead of the game.
“It is good to face Arsenal now,” Courtois said, as reported by The Daily Mail.
“Everybody is healthy and things are going well. We won at Leicester, won comfortably (on Tuesday night) and will go into the Arsenal game with a good feeling.
“We are doing well. After the bad first half against Burnley, I think all our performances have been good. We have shown good spirit, good football and good wins most importantly of all.”
Chelsea have recovered after a rocky start to the season.
Talks of tension behind the scenes intensified after losing 3-2 to Burnley at home during the opening weekend.
That was a game that saw them 3-0 down at half-time and down to nine men by the time the final whistle went.
Since then, though, they have won at Tottenham and Leicester and beat Everton at home. Their most recent win was a 6-0 thrashing of Azerbaijan side, Qarabag, in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Arsenal, meanwhile, have also stabilised after a poor start, although there’s the lingering feeling that everything could kick-off at any second.
A good win over Bournemouth last weekend was followed by a win against Cologne in the Europa League on Thursday night.
Arsenal’s recent record at Stamford Bridge is poor. They haven’t won there since the 5-3 victory in 2011. They’ve lost every encounter since.
Courtois is right to feel confident going into the game.
You get the feeling that even a Chelsea on the brink of implosion would still beat us at Stamford Bridge.
