The midfielder told the club's website: "The Champions League and the Premier League are both magnificent competitions. The Champions League is rare because you play less often but the Premier League is so important to us and we know how important it is for the fans too.
"The game against Arsenal comes at an important moment because it follows a league defeat. We will have a good rest and our great staff will help us recover.
"We are going to do our best in front of our own supporters is what is a big derby game. There is no better one to win."
Chelsea currently sit four points clear of Liverpool at the top of the table.
