'We must beat Chelsea to show London is Red' - Rosicky sends Instagram message

Arsenal player Tomas Rosicky has sent a message in the build-up to Chelsea's match against the Gunners.

Just minutes after the teams were announced for today's match between Chelsea and Arsenal, Tomas Rosicky took to Instagram to send a message both to the Gunner's opponents and the North London side's fans.

Posting a picture that declared 'London is Red' the Czech midfielder also wrote, 'We must beat Chelsea to show the world that London is Red.  Perfect time to set new records against Blues and to mark a great 1000 game for boss.'

We will know in a few short hours whether or not the Arsenal player got his wish.  

But one thing is clear, if London is Blue this afternoon, Arsene Wenger's side may be all but out of the title race, but if they can leave their opponents feeling that way, the Frenchman could finally be closing in on a belated trophy to add to his collection.
