As Arsenal prepare to face Chelsea in tomorrows FA Cup semi-final, Gunners frontman, Robin van Persie is wary of only one man …… the Chelsea manager.

Guus Hiddink is currently Chelsea’s stand-in manager until the end of the season after ‘Big Phil’ Scolari was given the boot earlier in the year.

Known in his native Holland as ‘lucky Gus’, Hiddink is a man that van Persie believes will be picking up at least one piece of silverware come the end of the season.

‘The first thing I thought when he came was ‘oh no’,’ said van Persie

‘Chelsea are still in the FA Cup and Champions League and he will win something. He is unbelievable. Everything he does turns to gold.

‘When I saw him two years ago in Holland, because we use the same physio sometimes, I asked to see his hands. ‘He said ‘yes why?’ I said that everything he puts his hand on turns to gold. He was laughing.’
