Arsenal star to fans: 'We need you more than ever' for Chelsea game

Arsenal warm up

Yaya Sanogo has been getting the fans going ahead of the Chelsea game on Saturday.

Arsenal’s title challenge is, perhaps according to some, all but over - but an uninspiring performance, needed result and magnificent goal in the North London derby will have spirits high.

Not to mention the fact this happens to be a week of celebration at the club - as Arsene Wenger prepares to embark on his 1,000th game as Arsenal manager.

With that in mind it is certainly a game that they will want to win.

The game, which will be played at Stamford Bridge in a lunchtime kick-off this Saturday, is also important in the title-race - as Arsenal can put their names well and truly back in the hat for potential title success with an away victory.

Of course that is not going to be easy - considering the exceptional record Jose Mourinho has at home with Chelsea.

So one Gunner has reached out to the fans for a little bit of help this weekend.

Being a London derby a large Arsenal contingent will be expected at The Bridge anyway - and Yaya Sanogo has taken to Twitter to implore more to come and those that do to get right behind their team:

Sanogo will not be likely to start the game - but he will hope to use his cheerleading skills to good effect from the touchline - and get his side’s fans roaring Arsenal on to an important victory.

Can Arsenal spring a surprise at the weekend?
