Djourou set his sights on Blues win
Johan Djourou has called for an immediate response from Arsenal against Chelsea as they look to avoid back-to-back home defeats.
The Gunners suffered only their second defeat in 10 games on Monday evening as resurgent Wigan boosted their survival chances with a 2-1 victory at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsene Wenger's men were made to pay the price after being caught out by two early goals as the Latics capitalised on some poor defending before then seeing off a disappointing attacking showing.
Djourou is keen to get the defeat out of their system as quickly as possible to prevent Tottenham and Newcastle, who are in fourth and fifth respectively, from eating into their five points advantage.
The Swiss defender knows another lacklustre showing against the Blues on Saturday, could have them looking over their shoulder in the race for a Champions League qualification spot.
"Technically we were not good against Wigan and were missing sharpness in our passes. It is difficult to win games when you are like that," Djourou told Arsenal Player.
"Maybe it was a bit of fatigue, but we all know Saturday is very important and we have to show up for this one. We would rather be in this situation than where the others are.
"The most important thing is to come back stronger, and what better chance to do it than against Chelsea?"
