Chelsea v Arsenal

Postby Conner99 » Fri Jan 18, 2013 12:30 am

Chelsea let a 2-0 lead slip as they allowed Southampton back into the game to grab a point as the match finished 2-2 , it continued the poor home record under Rafael Benitez ,just one win in six matches since taking charge , he said after the game "We should have won".


Arsenal has a disaster day at the Emiratews as they lost 2-0 to Man City ...a red card for Laurent Koscielny after just 10 mins made it all the more difficult for the Gunners and despite a major improvement in the second half the game proved beyond them ..it was the first win for Man City at Arsenal since 1975 and Arsene Wenger will want a better show from his side against Chelsea if they are to keep in touch with the top four .

Rafael Benitez has decided to drop Ba to the bench and start with Torres up front.

Podolski is ill and unable to take part while Chamberlain failed a fitness test so Cazorla will continue to play on the left.

FT

Chelsea 2-1 Arsenal
1-0 Mata 6’
2-0 Lampard 16’ (pen.)
2-1 Walcott 58’

Any comments on todays result?

Did Ramires commit a foul before the 1st Chelsea goal?

Was Arsenal keeper Szczesny lucky to stay on the pitch?

Thought Arsenal were hard done by in this one ,but they were crap in that first half .
First goal should never had been because of the foul by Ramires.
And the second goal ,i couldn't see what contact brought Ramires down in that box. I heard the commentators say they "heard" that there was minimal contact after saying themselves initially there was no contact.
Second half was much better and Arsenal looked like a different team.
Again great spirit showed by Arsenal eventually ,but there were too many passengers out there today,I thought Diaby in particular was non existent too many times ,he needs more time in the reserves to get up to speed.
