Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will be eager to protect his record against Arsenal on Monday.

Mourinho has an unbeaten record in nine games against Arsene Wenger, including the Capital One Cup victory in October.

But the Chelsea boss said: "It's not me against Wenger. It's my Chelsea against his Arsenal. It has no influence, that stat. It means nothing for Monday.

"I don't feel we have a ­psychological edge over Arsenal. My memories are that, against them, we play very good matches. As a consequence, we have got good results."
