Chelsea goalkeeper Courtois: Perfect time to face Arsenal. We're primed!

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois says they're primed to face Arsenal on Sunday.

Courtois had little to do last night as Chelsea breezed past Qarabag in the Champions League.

"It is good to face Arsenal now," Courtois said.

"Everybody is healthy and things are going well. We won at Leicester, won comfortably (on Tuesday night) and will go into the Arsenal game with a good feeling.

"We are doing well. After the bad first half against Burnley, I think all our performances have been good. We have shown good spirit, good football and good wins most importantly of all."

He added: "Sometimes it is good to face a big team early. Last year it didn't work out against Liverpool and Arsenal, but this season we have already won at Tottenham."
