Jose Mourinho on the Arsenal game and facing Petr Cech at the Emirates


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his positive record against Arsenal is not important ahead of tomorrow's game.

The Blues endured a very disappointing start to their Premier League but the Portuguese says his team is determined to take all three points from the Emirates.

"I want to isolate the match from every context," Mourinho said on Friday.

"Our fantastic record against Arsenal doesn't matter. It doesn't matter they haven't beaten Chelsea for seven matches in the Premier League. It doesn't matter they beat us in the Community Shield.

"It's just Chelsea against Arsenal. It's a match we want to win. If it's a pre-season friendly match it's the same, I want to win.

"If we are looking at the table at the moment and we see where we are, and we know the distance we are from the top of the league, I don't think that helps us."

Asked to comment about goalkeeper Petr Cech, he added: "Until the game finishes he's an opposing goalkeeper we want to score past.

"After the game it's not the same to meet Petr Cech in the tunnel as it is to meet guys I don't have a special connection to.

"If anybody had a doubt – I never did – and thought Petr Cech against Chelsea would open the goal and let us win, I think the Community Shield [proved] he is there to win and probably more than ever.

"For me, he's an Arsenal goalkeeper until the game ends. When the game ends if he wants to come to our dressing room the door is open for him."
