Costa: Perfect Time For Arsenal Match

share on:

Diego Costa says that the match against Arsenal comes at the right time for Chelsea to get out of their slump.

The blues put up a brilliant performance against Maccabi Tel Aviv in the champions league, with Costa scoring the third goal of four.

Domestically though, Chelsea have won just one match, drawn one and lost three matches, sitting 17th in the log.

Chelsea will face Arsenal on Saturday, as they hope to win their second match.

“There’s nothing better than a game against Arsenal to win and fix this situation,” he told reporters. “If we win then we’ll take a step forward in terms of confidence and points; we know about the importance of the game.

“We have to remain calm. We have enough quality to fix the situation.”

Chelsea did not make major changes to their squad in the summer transfer window and Costa says that the players know that they simply must improve in the coming weeks.

“[On Wednesday] it wasn’t just important for me because I scored but also for the defence as we didn’t concede,” he added. “The most important thing is the victory, which gives us confidence. It’s important to win, to score and not to concede goals. Big teams have to win.

“We know we are in a tough situation right now so, to fix it, we have to win games.

“The fact we won [against Tel-Aviv] is important to get confidence ahead of the next game here at Stamford Bridge in front of our fans. We know we have to give a little bit more; we are the champions of England and conquered the title last year with the same players we have now.

“We are the same ones but we do know we have to give that extra little bit of ourselves – the manager demands it. We have quality and players to fix this situation.”
