Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hopes to see the best of Marouane Chamakh today at Chelsea.

Chamakh's physical presence has given Arsenal added impetus going forward and Wenger expects him to make his presence felt against John Terry and company this weekend.

"He is a player that gives something more than his quality to the team because he has a desire to win and a desire to give to others as well," said Wenger.

"He makes other players look good around him. He believes he can win, he is a winner. He isn't someone who hides in front of physical challenges."

Chelsea have a physical striker of their own of course - Didier Drogba has scored 12 times in 12 appearances against Wenger's side. So can Chamakh give Chelsea similar problems?

"He has the potential to do it but let's see on Sunday," replied Wenger.
