Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini takes to Twitter to rally his Gunners team-mates ahead of Chelsea clash

Mathieu Flamini has issued a rallying cry to his team-mates ahead of Arsenal’s clash against Chelsea on Sunday.

The north London side can reclaim top spot in the Premier League on Sunday evening if the Gunners beat Chelsea.

Arsene Wenger’s side haven’t beaten the defending Premier League champions in a top-flight game since a 5-3 win at Stamford Bridge in 2011.

However, Guus Hiddink’s Chelsea side have drawn their last two games in the Premier League ahead of Sunday’s London derby.

Arsenal midfielder Flamini posted the below photo on his Twitter page as the France international prepared to face the west London side.

Arsenal are unbeaten in the Premier League since a 4-0 loss to Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium on Boxing Day.

The Gunners are three points behind current leaders Leicester City after the Foxes beat Stoke City at King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
