Arsene Wenger will celebrate his 1000th game in charge of Arsenal in the heart-warming surroundings of Stamford Bridge.
The Frenchman has been in charge of the Gunners since September 1996 and while he has enjoyed plenty of success in his 18 years in charge, he stands on the brink of his best campaign in nine years.
The club are already through to the semi-final of the FA Cup with Wigan standing in the way of a trip to Wembley and with the Wenger’s men just four behind Saturday’s opponents in the league with a game in hand, the manager has every reason to be confident.
Wenger, speaking in the build up to the game with Chelsea, revealed that a forward-looking approach is the key to his longevity in the cut-throat world of the Premier League.
“It makes you feel ‘where did the time go?’ It looks to me like I started yesterday, I can’t believe it is such a long time. Wenger told the club’s official website
“Why? Because you’re always focused on looking forward to the next game and when you look back you think I made quite a distance there.
“Despite that, your only interest is the next game, our drug is the next game, the hope for the next game, the desire to win the next one.”
Wenger’s focus will be tested to the max with Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere all out with Tomas Rosicky and Santi Cazorla set to be tasked with providing the creativity to Oliver Giroud.
On-loan Swedish star Kim Kallstrom is likely to provide the creative backup with the midfielder set to finally take his place in a match-day squad after arriving with a back injury on deadline day.
Chelsea meanwhile will head into the game in a mixed mood with the disappointment of the 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa temporarily lifted by their midweek win over Galatasaray which sealed their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions league.
If the Blues are to bounce back and eliminate one of their fiercest rivals from the title race they will have to do so without the suspended Willian and Ramires, both sent off at Villa Park last weekend.
David Luiz could start after returning to the squad for the clash with Galatasaray while Ashley Cole is hoping to be fit after a knee injury.
