Arsenal fans have little reason to be optimistic when the Gunners welcome Chelsea in the 15th round of the Premier League. The home team has experienced 8 consecutive victories, including up to 6 defeats, in the domestic arena.
Chelsea dominated in the first half of the first half. They held the ball more and Mason Mount startled the home fans with a free-kick hit the post. However, the negligible intimidation of the visitors mainly came from personal efforts.
In the opposite direction, Arsenal tried to tap into two sides and one of such situations led to the opening goal for the Gunners. Kieran Tierney was fouled in the penalty area and Alexandre Lacazette did not miss a chance to score from the penalty spot.
Chelsea is deadlocked against Arsenal
Chelsea tried to push up the squad to put pressure. However, the visitors’ public goods are not effective against the tight defense of the opponent. Chelsea’s biggest hope is that Timo Werner continues to disappoint with the 10th consecutive game without scoring.
Deadlock in creating opportunities to find goals, Chelsea received more goals in an unexpected scenario. The arsenal attack is not good, but the Emirates Stadium team has amazing moments.
Granit Xhaka temporarily dismissed his criticism with a super free-kick just before the first half ended. Not long after the break, it was Bukayo Saka’s turn to make the visitors with a beautiful shot that forced the Chelsea goalkeeper to watch the ball into the net.
Chelsea’s effort to help them shorten the score thanks to Tammy Abraham. The visitors attacked at the last minute, but the hope of teachers and coach Frank Lampard’s points dissolved in smoke when Jorginho missed the penalty in the 90th minute.
Winning 3-1 at home, Arsenal ended the full draw and lost, but did not significantly improve their position on the rankings. The Gunners temporarily rise to 14th but will return to their old place if Leeds United wins in this round. Meanwhile, this defeat puts Chelsea in danger of losing sixth place after round 15.
