Chambers reflects on bittersweet return 0

Posted on March 08, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Calum Chambers made his first Premier League start in over a year over the weekend as Arsenal played out a frustrating 1-1 draw against Burnley. Between VAR decisions and a parade of chances for the Gunners, it was near enough impossible to imagine them not winning the game – but sometimes, it’s just one of those days.

Chambers was understandably elated to be back in the mix but he, alongside everyone else, knows the problems that Arsenal had during the game. As such, he had mixed feelings when discussing it all with Arsenal.com.

It’s been a long old season for Arsenal and it isn’t getting any easier in the wake of their game against Burnley yesterday. While they may have secured a 1-1 draw, the controversy of VAR was looming large once again with the Gunners feeling as if they should’ve had a penalty.

Mikel Arteta was obviously going to have some serious thoughts on everything that happened after the game, and when he spoke with the media, it quickly became clear that he felt frustrated as Arsenal’s pursuit of the top six continues.

Arsenal out of luck in Burnley draw 0

Arsenal played a disappointing draw at Turf Moor today with the teams hitting the back of the net once apiece. As expected, the Gunners dominated the match with close to 60% possession and 15 shots (though only three on target), compared to Burnley’s nine, but in the end it counts for practically nothing; the points have been shared evenly.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the scoring in the fifth minute after Willian pulled a counterattack through the middle and engaged the captain on the left. He slalomed into the box, went past Matt Lowton and James Tarkowski (a bit too easily perhaps), and squeezed an accurate low shot into the near corner with Nick Pope unable to keep it out.

There’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding Arsenal and their ability to maintain a sense of consistency in the Premier League. They’ve had a few nice wins in recent weeks but if they’re serious about getting back into Europe, they need to do far more.

Their next task will see them lock horns with Burnley today in a game that could quite easily serve as a bit of a banana peel. When chatting to Arsenal.com, manager Mikel Arteta was realistic about the challenges the Clarets face heading into a game that could actually define their season.

Arsenal fans will be enjoying a midweek off as teams around them all use up plenty of energy heading into the weekend. But instead of resting for too long, the Gunners need to be preparing themselves for what should be a really intriguing clash with Burnley. The Clarets managed to take a point off of Leicester during the week and we all know the weak spots Arsenal still have when it comes to playing teams in the bottom half of the table.

Prior to the game, manager Mikel Arteta spoke with the media about what he expects to see.

Arsenal’s miserable run of form in the Premier League continues after the Gunners were beaten 1-0 by Burnley at the Emirates last night. The defeat ensures that the club remains down in 15th place, and it also increases the pressure on manager Mikel Arteta with many fans and pundits calling for him to be sacked. The one and only goal of the evening came when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang headed the ball into his own net from a set piece.

After the match, Arteta spoke about everything from the Granit Xhaka red card to what went wrong in the game and beyond.

Although it’s been a tough time to be an Arsenal fan in the Premier League so far this season, it’s worth taking a look at things from a different perspective every now and then – and there’s a pretty simple way of doing it.

Fans are conditioned to expect greatness from a team like Arsenal but under the current circumstances, with Mikel Arteta still learning the ropes and the team underperforming on the pitch, it can be easy to throw stones. In reality, though, what we need to be doing is backing the club and the manager.

They’ll get the chance to secure that win on Sunday night as they prepare to host relegation candidates Burnley.

Before the game, manager Mikel Arteta has spoken about the importance that rests in this encounter – as well as giving fans an update on the status of several players.

On being ‘sloppy’ on the ball:
Well, the conditions were difficult, the grass was long. They didn’t put any water on it and obviously that’s not a very helpful thing to play football.

On whether he should have expected the playing conditions considering how long he’s been in England:
Absolutely. I didn’t water the pitch yesterday in the training ground, so I expected it! But that doesn’t make it easier to play. It’s the game, you know, they do really well at what they do. It is a strength, they are are allowed to do it, so we have to adapt.
