Cresswell reckons a six point Christmas in on


Cresswell goalAaron Cresswell is off to Stamford Bridge looking for nothing less than three points!

Confidence is ¬†incredibly high and the Irons go into the clash with absolutely no fear as the nation’s fourth best club.

And the highly in form left back declared:¬†“Chelsea are flying at the minute, top of the league. And they look like they might win it. But we’re going into both games (Arsenal) looking to get three points from each.

“We’re high on confidence now, we’ve won nine games already. The wins over Manchester City and Liverpool were the biggest so far.

“They are two world class teams with world class players. We’ve gone a goal down quite a few times and then come back so that shows great character and team spirit.”

He told “We’re are still just under half way through the season. It’s too early to be talking about European football. We’ll see where we are come January and maybe reassess what are aims are for the season.

“At the start of the season a top ten finish would have been an achievement, now sitting in fourth we want to do a bit better than that.”
