Arsenal salvage point against Chelsea 0

Posted on January 23, 2020 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal came to fight against Chelsea and while they weren’t quite able to secure the three points at Stamford Bridge, they certainly made a statement as they came from behind twice to claim a point against the Blues – even with ten men.

A Shkodran Mustafi error caused David Luiz to make a rash challenge on Tammy Abraham, and just like that, he was sent off and Jorginho scored from the penalty spot. Despite that, though, there was seemingly a route back into the game for the Gunners if they decided to rely on their youngsters – which includes Gabriel Martinelli who went on a fantastic run before slotting home a wonderful solo goal.

Arsenal produced a rather remarkable comeback from two goals and a man down to snatch a point at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea on Tuesday. It makes a change most welcome to what we’ve been seeing lately – too often the Gunners were the ones to throw away leads and drop points from winning positions.

Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, now the team captain, had just started serving his three-match ban after picking up a direct red card against Crystal Palace, when up pops a whole new problem of the same sort.

On whether he has any complaints about the red card:
If I have?

On whether it was double jeopardy:
I don’t know. I watched it from different angles and from different angles it looked different. They made a decision and we have to accept it.

While Arsenal didn’t quite manage to come away with all three points against Chelsea, there’s still a bizarre sense of renewed optimism within the Emirates in the wake of the 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge last night. They need to start turning these points into wins, but as Arteta has stated, there are reasons to be proud of this team as we look ahead to the future.

On what he learned about his team from the previous Chelsea game:
It’s different from then to now. I loved the first 30 to 35 minutes and the way we went about it. How aggressive we were, how much we wanted to attack them and put them under pressure – it’s the kind of way that we wanted to play. After that, we had a little bit of a setback. They changed the system and we found it a little bit more difficult to deal with that. We started to defend deep without really conceding anything, and had some great opportunities on the break as well. I think physically for us in that moment it was harder for us to maintain the same amount of energy. Against Chelsea, that’s vital.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta knows and understands this game, and one of the biggest things to understand with a club like Arsenal is that you simply cannot afford to go on a bad run of form for too long – or it could spell trouble. In their upcoming clash against Chelsea tonight, there’s a very good chance that their top four hopes could be all but finished – and we aren’t even out of January yet.

There was a great deal of optimism heading into the game between Arsenal and Chelsea, as everyone sort of knew how big of a moment this was for new Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta. While things were going pretty well for large portions of the game, with the Gunners even leading for most of it, the end result was a familiar one as the Blues came from behind to break Arsenal hearts.

As Arsenal succumbed to a 1-2 defeat at the hands of Chelsea at the Emirates on Sunday, it was Shkodran Mustafi’s turn to have his performance dissected and analysed far and wide.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck early to give the Gunners the lead, only to see it overturned by late goals by Jorginho and Tammy Abraham. And while most of Mikel Arteta’s team played relatively well for almost the entire game, the nerves of Mustafi weren’t easy to miss.

On Arsenal being naive for the Chelsea winner:
I think we had the structure really well, we had more numbers than the opponent and were completely in control. I think it’s a five against three situation. It’s the structure where we need to control those sorts of situations. Then we just stepped back. They are really good in transitions.

On Bernd Leno’s reaction to his mistake:
He will be down. When an error costs the team points, it’s harder. We have to lift him. He’s done a really good job since he joined this football club and we have to respect that. We just need to bring the confidence back in and that’s it.

Arsenal were in prime position to secure three points against Chelsea and get their top four aspirations back on track this past weekend at the Emirates. Alas, after leading for most of the game, two goals in the last ten minutes from the Blues ensured that they would be the ones to walk out of North London with the bragging rights.

After the game Arteta spoke with the media about what went wrong for the Gunners.
