Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger expects to face a fired-up John Terry when he leads Chelsea this weekend.

Speaking before Chelsea's trip to Arsenal on Saturday, Wenger had no hesitation in saying Terry would be in the right frame of mind to play, regardless of how little time he has spent training this week because of his presence at the hearing at Wembley.

"He has shown in the past he can deal with that," Wenger said.

"We do not want Chelsea to be weaker. We want to beat a Chelsea team that has all their assets and we do not even think about that. What we focus on is on our side, to try to be at the best possible level, because anyway Chelsea has 25 players of a top level. Terry in the big games has experience and leadership qualities that can always be important. We have no speculation about that at all."
