Okay so we still have three weeks before the start of the new Premier League season, but it is just as well because Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal squad have a hell of a lot of work to do to get ready for it after getting a proper pasting from Chelsea in the third game of our pre-season schedule.
The weekend before the EPL season kicks off Arsenal will face Chelsea again at Wembley Stadium for the Community Shield and unless we do a lot better against the title holders in that match there will be very little confidence among us Gooners that the new season will be the one which finally sees Arsenal crowned champions of England again.
Even though Wenger named a side with a few young Gunners in it and you would expect us to be a lot stronger when the real competitive games begin, there were players like Ozil, Monreal, Xhaka, Ramsey and the new striker Lacazette in from the start but we were second best throughout.
I don’t think we should start panicking just yet but that was a rude awakening that Wenger should not take lightly. How worried were you guys by the way Chelsea took Arsenal apart in China?
