Shambolic!! Yes, no other word can describe Chelsea’s performance tonight. It used to be easy once upon a time, playing against Arsenal. But today Chelsea shot themselves in the foot with a performance even worse than that against Liverpool.
Arsene Wenger was celebrating his 20 year anniversary as Arsenal manager, and Chelsea made sure he enjoyed every moment of it. Chelsea went with the usual team, except Fabregas starting today in place of Oscar, but it was not a good evening for him as the events unfolded.
Arsenal looked sharp right from the word go, but the fashion in which the Gunners opened the scoring, it was all down to Cahill’s personal loss of concentration.
