Florent Malouda has told Arsenal to expect a repeat performance from Didier Drogba in Sunday's big game at Stamford Bridge.
Drogba has terrorised the Gunners in the past and will again look to provide the main threat for Chelsea when they entertain their fellow title hopefuls.
Malouda is confident the striker can inspire the Blues to another victory, although he is ready for a difficult test.
Arsene Wenger's side pride themselves on playing an attractive brand of football and are unlikely to change their style for the trip across London, but Malouda believes Chelsea have the game to take them down.
"We all know what Didier has done against Arsenal in the past and we believe he can do it again," said the Frenchman in the Daily Mirror.
"Arsenal also are well aware and that will be a factor, especially if we can ensure Didier gets the right service.
"But at the same time it is down to us to make sure we impose ourselves on the game from the start.
"Everybody knows about Arsenal's passing game. They have quality.
"We have seen many times teams coming here trying to close the game down but I think that Arsenal have always played the same way.
"They use their passing game and technical quality against everyone."
