Mourinho urges Chelsea fans to drown out Arsenal Cesc jeers

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is pushing home fans to get behind Cesc Fabregas for their clash with Arsenal. He has urged Chelsea fans to drown out what is expected to be a hostile reception from the away end toward their former skipper.

Mourinho said: "If Chelsea fans want, the reaction from the Arsenal fans, nobody listens (hears). It depends on Chelsea fans. But if 40,000 Blues fans want, nobody listens to 3000 red fans. For me that's an important point.

"It (Fabregas' reception from Arsenal fans) depends also on the club culture. As you can see Chelsea fans with Frank Lampard (against Manchester City last month) and maybe we'll see Chelsea fans with Ashley Cole if he comes back with Roma.

"Fabregas was not born, but was almost made at Arsenal and I think the feeling should be good between him and the fans."
