After what seems like a game Arsenal were finally going to get something from the game, the gunners capitulated and lost another game this season. The match against Chelsea was a game of who wants it more. With both sides having new manager in charge, it was expected to see both sides play in a way that will definitely show that they have not fully comprehend the way their managers wanted them to play. Arsenal exhibited this more.
The gunners went down to a Pedro goal inside 15 minutes of action and they did not look like they have a way of getting back into the match. When Moratta doubled the lead, it was looking like Arsenal were here for a mauling in the hands of Chelsea.
Two goals down before the half hour mark is definitely not a good sign. Arsenal were however able to find a way back in the game all thanks to their collective team work.

It was Hector Bellerin’s side of attack that the chances kept coming from. The Spaniard crossed the ball to Henrikh Mkhitaryan to score a deep shot just outside the 18 yard box. Arsenal saw several other chances after that especially from Peirre Emerick Aubameyang but couldn’t convert. Alex Iwobi eventually slotted home from an Mkhitaryan cross to make it 2-2 before half time.
At this point, Arsenal were at their best. However, after the half time break, they lost all those drive towards the end of first half and allow Hazard pace through the back line to release Marcos Alonso to score the winner. It was a painful defeat but Emery and his boys have to continue working hard.
