Laurent Koscielny has vowed to end Arsene Wenger's win-less streak against bitter rival Jose Mourinho.

Incredibly, Wenger has never tasted victory in 12 clashes with the Chelsea boss - a drought stretching back to 2004-05.

But Koscielny insists the red-hot Gunners are desperate to break that curse at the Emirates today.

Ahead of the title showdown, the French defender said: "It's been complicated for the boss - but I hope just for once he will win against Mourinho.

"It's true Mourinho likes to play the psychological game. But that works only for a time because it's on the pitch where things happen!"

After all, Yaya Touré’s winner all but cinched the belt on second place, and what else is there Arsenal to play for but third? For 75 minutes, we played in such a way that a comparison to dog food would be insulting to it, not us, and we still emerged from a stadium in which we haven’t won a Prem match for how long I don’t dare mention it (okay, September 2006).

It’s not the win we clamored for, but it’s a result that sees us batten down hatches and all but dare Man U to overtake us anyway. Like it or lump it, that’s a far-cry better than we might have hoped for when the first half of the seasonunravelled unfolded.
