Ahead of tonight’s League Cup tie between Arsenal and our beloved Chelsea, here are three players who I believe will be key to us picking up a victory.
1) Eden Hazard
The little Belgian has been brilliant again this season and is a huge reason why we are second in the league. He has scored three goals in nine games and created 19 chances for his team-mates, and has also played in every single game for the Blues this season.
Arsenal have proved that their defence can be penetrated attacked correctly, and Hazards quick feet could cause major problems to Thomas Vermaelen, Per Mertesacker or Laurent Koscielny, depending on who plays.
2) Samuel Eto’o
The Cameroonian forward scored against Cardiff 10 days ago and if selected tonight then he will have to ensure that he carries on the sort of form he showed in the clash against the Welsh side. His movement looks as though it is improving every game and he looks more of a threat recently, so should he get the chance to tuck one away tonight then he had better make sure he does it.
3) David Luiz
Luiz is the man most people will be watching tonight. Although he is a fan favourite, he has proved to be a liability numerous times since arriving at Stamford Bridge, and with John Terry likely to be rested it may be the Brazilian’s turn to partner Gary Cahill at centre-back.
