Arsenal’s disciplinary record was called into question once again after we were reduced to nine men during our clash against Chelsea in the Premier League.
While we may debate each decision, the fact of the matter is that we lost the game due to our own errors and another set-piece goal.
Arsenal news & rumours
Here’s how we rated.
GK) Petr Cech – 6
Made a couple of important saves and could do very little about both of Chelsea’s goals.
RB) Hector Bellerin – 6
Kept Hazard quiet for the most part and was adventurous during the first half when each team had their full compliment of players.
CB) Gabriel – 3
Diego Costa is universally recognised as a wind-up merchant, yet he rarely succeeds in getting a defender sent off. Gabriel was both naive and rather silly to get involved in his theatrics. Once again, an experienced player’s naivety has let us down.
CB) Laurent Koscielny – 5
Could’ve done better for Chelsea’s opening goal and invited pressure on numerous occasions with his reckless passing.
LB) Nacho Monreal – 5
Lost Kurt Zouma at the back post and we were all at sea defending that particular set piece.
