Oxlade-Chamberlain: Arsenal must do this to beat Chelsea...

Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain believes that the Gunners must keep all eleven players on the pitch if they intend to beat Chelsea on Saturday.

The North London club received a total of three red cards in their two games against the Blues last season with Per Mertesacker, Santi Cazorla and Gabriel Paulista all sent off.

"It'd be nice to keep 11 men on the pitch against Chelsea this time round," Oxlade-Chamberlain told Arsenal Player.

"I know it sounds funny but generally speaking in the last few games against them, it's always a big clash with a lot of emotions and maybe some mind games.

"First and foremost, it's a massive game and we just need to keep our discipline and stay in the game. I'd back this team to be able to beat anyone in the league on our day.

"It's going to be a big occasion but we can't get too caught up in it, we just need to go out and play our game."
