Courtois: Perfect time to face Arsenal.

Chelsea are looking to make it four wins on the trot when they take on Arsene Wenger's side

Thibaut Courtois says it is the perfect time for the Premier League champions to play Arsenal.

Antonio Conte's Blues host the Gunners at Stamford Bridge on Sunday following their 6-0 Champions League group-stage win over Qarabag on Tuesday night.

"It is good to face Arsenal now," Courtois said, according to talkSPORT.

"Everybody is healthy and things are going well. We won at Leicester, won comfortably (on Tuesday night) and will go into the Arsenal game with a good feeling.

"We are doing well. After the bad first half against Burnley, I think all our performances have been good. We have shown good spirit, good football and good wins most importantly of all."

The last clash between the two sides was in the Community Shield early in August when Arsenal won 5-2 on penalties.
