Chelsea, from a slow start in 2020/21 campaign, bounced back after Thomas Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard in January, securing a fourth place in the premier league table and winning the champions league title, while going all the way in the super cup final.
Arsenal ended the campaign down to eighth position in the premier league and dropped out of European competition after 25years for the first time.

“I see Chelsea as a competitive rival for us. I don’t see them as a team we aim to be like and i don’t think they see us that way either”.
