Former Arsenal star Bacary Sagna has opened up on how Chelsea mentally dominated Arsenal during his time at the London club.

Sagna revealed that Arsenal's inferiority complex played a part in Chelsea's dominance over the Gunners. 

“I believe we under-evaluated ourselves. Playing for Chelsea image-wise was something different,” he told the Gunners' In Lockdown Podcast, captured by The Mirror.

“They used their image a lot, they used to have some big players in the national team, and we used to talk about them more than they talked about us.

“Maybe in our heads, they were bigger players than us. On the pitch, we had as much quality as they had whenever we played, and when we played the Arsenal way nobody could beat us.

“I believed nobody could beat us. We used to play simple passes, one, two-touches maximum. But I believe we under-evaluated ourselves which is a big mistake in life.”

The Frenchman spent seven years at Arsenal before joining Manchester City on a free transfer in 2014.
