Chelsea 2-4 Arsenal

EPL

Chelsea 2-4 Arsenal

Chelsea

Arsenal sees out an excellent performance to beat Chelsea 4-2. Unfortunately, the opening two goals came from mistakes.

Nketiah latched onto Christensen’s loose pass to slot in before he was caught out for Werner’s equaliser.

Smith Rowe put them back ahead before Azpilicueta quickly responded with a tap-in.

Arsenal dominated the second half, and Nketiah restored the lead after making the most of Azpilicueta’s poor backpass before Saka fired in a spot-kick in stoppage time to wrap up the points.

Starting lineup:

CHELSEA STARTING XI (3-4-1-2): Edouard Mendy;

Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, Malang Sarr;

Reece James, N’Golo Kante, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Marcos Alonso;

Mason Mount; Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner.

 

ARSENAL STARTING XI (4-2-3-1): Aaron Ramsdale;

Ben White, Rob Holding, Gabriel Magalhaes, Nuno Tavares;

Mohamed Elneny, Granit Xhaka; Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, Emile Smith Rowe;

Eddie Nketiah.

Goals:

Tavares gets Arsenal upfield with a long pass, but it’s a horrible mistake from Christensen as he mishits it back to Mendy. Nketiah was just behind him and latched onto the loose ball, skipping past the challenge from Sarr before coolly slotting it past the outrushing Mendy. 1-0 Arsenal.

Loftus-Cheek is in quickly to nick the ball off Nketiah, and he slides it through to Werner down the left. He cuts inside before taking a shot that looks like it’s heading wide until it takes a deflection off White. That wrongfoots Ramsdale, and it rolls in at the near post. 1-1.

Arsenal broke on the counter after playing themselves out of trouble in their box again. Xhaka nutmegs Alonso before driving forward, and it’s worked out to the right. Odegaard squares it into the D for Smith Rowe, who’s running onto it and his low shot nestles in the bottom corner. 2-1 Arsenal.

Chelsea persisted down their left side, and Mount took it off Werner to swing a good cross onto the edge of the six-yard box. None of the Arsenal defenders spotted Azpilicueta’s run, and he slipped in behind to tap it past Ramsdale. 2-2.

It’s a poor pass from Azpilicueta as he plays it behind James, and Tavares drives down the left. He squares it to Nketiah, who takes a heavy first touch to gift it to Sarr. It bounces back to him off the defender, and he slots it into the bottom corner. 3-2 Arsenal.

And that should do it for Arsenal! Saka steps up to take the penalty he won, and it’s a good spot-kick from the youngster. He sends Mendy the wrong way and fires his shot into the right of the goal. 4-2 Arsenal.

So, what’s next?

Arsenal stays in fifth after that win, but they’ve moved level on points with Tottenham.

They’re only behind their rivals on goal difference now. Next up for them is Manchester United at home.

Chelsea’s losing streak at home goes on, and Tuchel hopes that can change at the weekend against West Ham.
