Arsenal undefeated run halted by Chelsea

It was a derby full of tension and action. A derby highlighted by dubious referee decisions, shovings and so forth. However, in the end the more clinical team was handed the victory. Arsenal sterile dominance didn’t help much.

Arsenal did not perform that bad. Actually, Arsenal matched the Blues in the whole game. The only difference was the brilliant run by Hazard to win a penalty and convert it.

It was not another capitulation for Arsenal but it leaves nothing to cheer about. In such a game, we expect our star players to shine but they don’t. Like I have always said, in such a game any goal will count. It doesn’t matter how it has been scored. Arsenal will tend to ‘walk it in’ which makes it impossible especially in well-organized defenses.

Arsenal are now 9 points behind the leaders. Mourinho extended his unbeaten streak by Wenger to 12. Are the Gunners already out of the EPL title race? We wait.
