Eden Hazard states his prediction for Arsenal v Chelsea FC
Eden Hazard talks up the importance of Chelsea FC's League Cup semi-final clash against Arsenal on Wednesday
Eden Hazard has warned Arsenal that Chelsea FC will head to The Emirates looking to claim victory and book their place in the League Cup final on Wednesday night.
The Gunners are preparing to host their London rivals in front of their home fans as they look to try and reach the showpiece at Wembley.
The two London sides played out a goalless draw in the first leg of the semi-final clash when they met at Stamford Bridge earlier this month.
Chelsea FC will certainly be out for revenge against Arsenal, with the Blues having lost to the Gunners in both the FA Cup final and Community Shield at Wembley last year.
And Hazard has insisted that the Blues are feeling full of confidence as they prepare to take on their bitter London rivals at The Emirates on Wednesday night.
Hazard told Chelsea TV: “It’s a semi-final, we will go there to win for sure. If we are thinking about defending against Arsenal that’s a bad thing because we need to score goals.
“We will see the team, maybe the manager will change some players. We want to win trophies and the League Cup is a good trophy.
“Big games are special because you know everyone is watching and our fans want Chelsea in the final. The stadium is good and on these kind of nights you want to shine.
“We need to find solutions and create problems for them. We will go there to create chances because if we don’t create chances we can’t score. It is that simple.”
Chelsea FC warmed up for their clash against Arsenal with an impressive 4-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion on the south coast in the Premier League on Saturday.
The Blues are currently in third place in the Premier League table and three points behind second-placed Manchester United as they look to try and finish the season as high as possible.
