September 24, 2016, was a terrible day for everyone associated with Chelsea Football Club. We suffered a bitter 3-0 defeat in the hands of Arsenal, and we looked like a team with no hope and no clue.
Four months and a week later, Chelsea had the opportunity to right their wrong against a bitter rival, and our most hated foe, Arsenal.
Chelsea took the opportunity with both hands, and Arsenal were lucky not to have received another 6-0 bashing.
Stand-in captain Gary Cahill was happy with the team’s victory and revenge against Arsenal.
Speaking after the win, Cahill said: “It should have been 3-0 but it was fantastic.
“In football you get opportunities to put things right, I remember coming off the pitch after Arsenal away and feeling like a mug, we had the opportunity and we put it right.
“We’re confident when we play at home and we knew a win against a massive team would be vitally important for us. It felt good to get the three points.”
He added: “Going forward we created a lot, we could have had more goals, but the second one was special, from a special player.
“We’ve put ourselves in a great position. We’re playing well and we knew the game against Arsenal was important. Touch wood, everybody stays fit and healthy so we can keep going.”
