Thibaut Courtois: "Arsenal are a really top team"

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois wants to take all three points in his first London derby against Arsenal this weekend.

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is hoping to give the club's fans "a lovely Sunday afternoon" with a victory over Arsenal in their Premier League clash tomorrow.

The two London clubs go head to head at Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea six points and three places ahead of the Gunners in the table.

Courtois told the club's official website: "There are a lot of teams in London and all these games are important as you can prove you are the best team in London, and that is always nice for the supporters to be able to say that, so we will do our best to win these games.

"Of course derbies are always special, Arsenal are a really top team and when you are a small boy you dream to play these games. If you play in them you can enjoy them a lot and hopefully we have a lovely Sunday afternoon."

Cesc Fabregas will come up against Arsenal for the first time since joining Chelsea, and former boss Arsene Wenger has insisted that he has no animosity towards his old captain.
