A very disappointing first 25 minutes where Chelsea dominated on the pitch, and in the last 20 minutes of the first half Arsenal recovered and scored two goals to equalize after conceding two goals within 25 minutes by Chelsea.
The team played without defense, Arsenal’s defenders committed a lot of mistakes that no other Premier League player would commit, especially in such crucial matches.
On the other hand, the team had a better defensive second half and they were more clinical on target where they tried to balance between the attack and defense.
We will rate our players after every match, here is Arsenal Insider players ratings:
Petr Cech: Couldn’t do much for the goals he conceded. Not really at fault. 6/10
Shkodran Mustafi: A very poor performance, so slow and far away from his position. 5/10
Hector Bellerin: Made some good attacking contributions and croses. 6/10
Nacho Monreal: Helped in the attack, especially in the crosses. But wasn’t so good defensively. 6/10
Granit Xhaka: Again, a poor match. Couldn’t help in the defense as a holding midfielder. 5/10
