Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta says Kai Havertz and Jorginho have never had a bad word to say about former club Chelsea.
The Gunners go to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Arteta said: “They talk highly of everyone at the club, it’ll be a special day for them.”
He added: “It is a big game. I’ve been really impressed by them this season, it is different. They deserve more than what they have in the table. We’ll have to be at our best tomorrow.
“I go game by game. Chelsea have a good squad, they are at home, we are in a good moment too. We will try and beat them and see what happens.”
Arteta says Bukayo Saka will be fit for the game and commented on whether England should rest the winger given their Euros qualification.
He said, “I don’t know how they’ll approach it. When our players are fit, we are happy to let them go to the national teams, the players want to go. It is a great opportunity for them.
“Sometimes players feel better when playing every three or four days. They can get knocks, this is part of the game. I’m sure he wants to play [against Chelsea]. I don’t see any player that doesn’t want to be in the starting XI.”
