Arsenal must not let their defensive failings hamper them against Chelsea 0

The major theme that ran through Arsenal’s FA Cup exit at the hands of Nottingham Forest, and indeed their season, has been their inability to defend. Their Premier League campaign and FA Cup failure has seen poor defending hinder them, and they have been made to pay in both competitions.

Against Forest, they conceded four times, with two goals coming from the penalty spot, while they were ridiculed for the first goal they let in as they tried to utilise a high line from a free-kick, only to realise that their two-man wall was deeper than their defensive line, playing the scorer onside.
