The Black Star will be in action against the Gunners on Thursday and hopes to at least score a goal at the Emirates Stadium

Ghana and Crvena Zvezda striker Richmond Boakye says it would be a great for him to score against Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech in the Europa League fixture at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday.

The 24-year-old has been in top form for the Serbian giants this season, netting 18 times in all competitions.

"I will go back to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal and will score because I deserve it," Yiadom said.

"I would like to face [Petr] Cech again because when you face such a goalkeeper and score, it has more weight. You will remember it more and celebrate it more," he added.

Yiadom has been linked with a move to Chelsea ahead of the January transfer window.

"I am playing well with Red Star Belgrade so we'll see who will contact me. If I'm going to play for Chelsea, then I'll go.

"I'm having fun and I'm playing at my best," he said.

Yiadom previously played under Chelsea boss Antonio Conte at Juventus, after joining the Italian powerhouse from Genoa in 2012.

He has been named in Kwesi Appiah's squad to face Egypt in the final World Cup qualifying game.
