London - Arsenal's Petr Cech is looking forward to beating Chelsea for the second time when the Gunners visit the goalkeeper's former club in the Premier League on Saturday.

Arsenal defeated the champions in the Community Shield at Wembley - the first time in 14 attempts that Arsene Wenger got the better of Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho.

The clubs sit at opposite ends of the table, with the Gunners having recovered well from their opening day league loss against West Ham United to climb to fourth place on 10 points, while Chelsea are languishing two points above the relegation zone after their latest defeat by Everton at the weekend.

"Obviously it will be new to play against Chelsea but when you start playing the game the only concern you have is 'can I play my best game and can we win?'" Cech, who left Chelsea after losing his place in the first team to Thibaut Courtois, was quoted as saying by the London Evening Standard.

"In a way it is nice that I spent so much time there. That I know every corner of the stadium and the space, so for me there will be no surprises."

"I have never played at Stamford Bridge in the visiting team so it will be a new experience for me," he added.

"I go to a familiar place but most important for me will be to win the game. That's the way it goes."

Chelsea host Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. The match kicks off at 13:45.
