The Premier League heavyweights meet at Wembley Stadium in two days time, and the German has spoken out in respect of the English champions.
He believes that it is the consistency of Chelsea’s performances that Arsenal must learn from if they are to claim the EPL title for the first time since 2004:
“They played really well last season, they were really consistent and always defended well from the front. I think if we can learn something from Chelsea, it’s to be consistent over the whole season,” he told Arsenal’s official website.
“You need to be consistent, especially in the league. In the cup, you can win it with six straight victories, which we managed to do twice.
“The hunger is still there to win a cup and to stay cup winners. The consistency over the whole season is vital. It’s what everyone wants, the players and the fans.”
