This is no Nollywood movie scripts. For real, your favourite film stars are talking tough ahead of the London 'meltdown'. Excerpts…
JOHN OKAFOR (MR IBU):
Where has it gone wrong for Chelsea this season?
The poor results so far are temporary setbacks. Chelsea will bounce back from this nightmarish start
Chelsea are hosting Arsenal on Saturday. Are you worried about another disappointing day?
The rot has ended with the win over Macabbi Tel Aviv in the Champions League. I believe Chelsea will win this game. I am not staking a bet just yet o, e too early abeg (laughter).
And so what is your prediction for Saturday's game?
I predict a 2-1 win for Chelsea. Chelsea goals from Diego Costa and Eden Hazard and Alexis Sanchez to score for Arsenal
Will Chelsea's bad results ever make you to reconsider supporting them?
Never! I will always support the club. Jose Mourinho will outwit Arsene Wenger once again in this game
RICHARD MOFE DAMIJO:
What are your thoughts on the game?
I am a big Arsenal fan and I hope we win. But realistically, I think we will share honours with Chelsea on Saturday at the Stamford Bridge.
Which players do you feel could decide the outcome of the match?
I believe Walcott and Fabregas will be pivotal to the match from both ends.
Your Score prediction this Chelsea vs Arsenal game?
A score draw, possibly
Where do you think Chelsea and Arsenal will finish in the EPL table at the end of the season?
Arsenal will be in the top four as usual come May next year, but can't win the league this year. The club didn't really reinforce very well during the transfer window. Chelsea have started badly but can bounce back in the course of the season.
There were talks about you missing a flight due to an Arsenal game. When was that, can you tell our readers?
The day Arsenal 'The Invisibles' lost their 49-game unbeaten run against Manchester United, it rained in London and Virgin Atlantic Limo Services never came and I got to the Airport late. I was travelling back home. So I said at the airport that like Arsenal, Virgin let me down. Some people got it twisted. I didn't really miss a flight because of the match.
