The Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has said that Chelsea’s match with Arsenal during the weekend is probably the biggest test they will face during the start of the season. Chelsea will be facing Arsenal, who are one of the top four teams in the Premier league, during the weekend. Roberto di Matteo’s men will be making the short trip to Emirates stadium to face Arsene Wenger’s men. Even though the likes of Manchester United and Manchester city have played against top teams like Liverpool and Arsenal, this will be the first big test for Chelsea. It is the opinion of the defender Branislav Ivanovic, who has played in every Premier league game so far.
The 28-year-old Serbian defender has become one of the best right backs at the club. He is also extremely versatile and is capable of playing in the centre of defence. Roberto di Matteo will be making a decision on the captain John Terry. Depending upon the outcome of the decision, there is a chance that Branislav Ivanovic will be playing in the centre of defence. So far, Chelsea have made a great start to the season, but have not faced any of the top teams. They are currently top of the table with a two-point advantage.
“We have the next game as a very great challenge for us in the Premier League – Arsenal away. This is the first actual big game for us this season. Our performances and quality – we know how it. But we have to show everyone, and we have to show it every game. This is the biggest challenge. I think Arsenal will be a great challenge for us, and we have to really be ready for that,” said the 28-year-old defender. Chelsea could go four points clear of Manchester United after this match.
