Chelsea v Arsenal review – Gritty Gunners deserve the draw (at least)

Not many people gave Arsenal much of a chance of getting anything from our trip to Chelsea in the Premier League today, and that was before we heard the news that Mesut Ozil had picked up a minor muscle injury ahead of the game and that Alexis Sanchez would only be on the bench.

But it was a much more resilient and organised peformance from the Gunners than we have seen in the two previous away gamesd this season, and it paid off as the home team were frustrated as they struggled to make much headway or even enjoy more of the ball.

As the game wore on we did drop further and further back as Arsene Wenger decided to hang on to what we had. And just as the pressure started to build Chelsea were reduced to 10 men after an awful studs up tackle by Luiz on Kolasinac. He could have gone earlier to be honest when a raised boot caught Koscielny in the face but the referee gave a yellow.

There was hardly any time for Arsenal to make use of the advantage and with better finishing we should have already had the lead to hang on to. Welbeck headed a great ball just wide in the 16th minute and Lacazette really should have buried the rebound after a mazy run by Ramsey saw his attempt come back off the post minutes before the break.

We also had a goal disallowed but Mustafi was offside before heading a free kick past Courtois, and Chelsea had chances as well, though, but not too many and it was an even game that saw Gunners show real grit and get a rare point at Stamford Bridge.

      If it were Mourinho that pulled a draw in the backyard of a top team….it would be “he got his game plan spot”…” it was genius”. Given we started the season badly…..I will give Wenger thumbs up for this.

      A team with bad system like Arsenal require all players to fight hard and possess the ball better. Players like Ozil are more accustomed to better system like Barcelona’s, Real Madrid’s and Bayern’s systems.

      Ozil is not suitable for Arsenal and Arsenal had better use Iwobi or Nelson in his position, as what we have seen today. If Iwobi is given the chance to keep playing as a starter, his skills would flourish.

      Defensively, you are spot on. However, everyone seen that Lacazette really did missed Ozil.
      Ah, well, I am just happy we fight like beasts at the bridge, honestly I am a bit proud. A win was deserved but hey, I’ll have bitten your hand for a nil nil before the game. Really buzzing, not because of the score but because of the display we’ve put on.

        A poacher needs cleaver through balls. Ozil is that player.

        When we get a full fit Sanchez, Ozil and Lacazette together, this team will score.

        My fear is in the middle and back lines. Needs Kolasanic steel in middle to make the two back lines work well together. He is becoming the leader of the team by example, and he needs a central role.

      Ridiculous comment. What exactly did Iwobi do in place of Ozil? Absolutely nothing. Zero creativity, and didn’t add much defensively either. With Ozil we could’ve won the game. Just like we did 3 out of the pass 4 against the same opponent.

    Despite the draw, the players showed great battle spirit! Arsenal can battle a better team because they did not have any passenger in the team, everybody worked hard.

    Arsenal really need to get Bellerin’s competitor in January. He used to be smarter and more technical, but now he is just fast.

    Cech was amazing. A more skillful and technical central midfielder is also needed to compete with Ramsey and Xhaka in the next transfer window.

      Going to be costly with Sanchez and Ozil leaving for nothing. But, that is life in the EPL with other teams outspending us and making the league unbalanced. We need a RW and defender.

      I think the cheaper option is to get Kolasanic in the middle, and then build the team around him. He is already influencing the younger players, I would think.

      Following another cheaper option is to push Ramsay to the RW, and let him come to the middle as needed when he wants to attack.

      The defense needs a 50M signing as they are too slow against the younger, mobile forwards of today. We have no money from the owners, and it is horrible.

      if you have seen kolasinac play for schalke you wont say that. he puts in decent crosses..its just wenger asking him to play one-twos with sanchez or welbz or ozil down the left before cutting back. also the reason why bellerin has never learnt how to put in high crosses until now

            Great teams can control the side of the play too. We are not there yet… too radical an idea, but Wenger will experiment at some point with Kolasanic in the middle, as he is too good to be wasted where he is now.

      Hold your horses Burton.

      The side is still missing some key positions to get that far.

      We need a DMF, or we need to convert Kolasanic in the middle to intimidate and boss the other side. He is fierce and inspiring and needs to influence more than one side of the pitch.

      We need a world class RW to play opposite Alexis. Maybe Ramsay should he used there, so he is not a defensive liability.

      Money is a problem, unless Wenger can use his magic and pluck another Sanchez, Ozil or Lacazette.

        Ramsay covered ground better. He is still a forward in his head, but not a number 10. So Wenger has a problem. Hopefully, Wenger uses him as a RW and then allow Ramsay to play inside in that role.

        He cannot be counted on to defend, and that is a problem when he in the middle.

        Wenger’s positions make sense if you also understood things like re-signing players. Right now he needs to make his players sign longer term deals. Then they can be sold to teams look for decent home grown players. (Like the Ox!)

      You have some decent points.

      But, “Rambo over Ozil in the no. 10 role anyday!” is off the mark.

      And, how many passes to Lacazette did your #10 thread through today?

      Rambo is exactly that, he wade in both hand up and cannot do well enough passing for the final ball. If he gets serious with being a winger, he has the speed and determination to make a difference at RW.

      We should engage analysis like those offered by Ignasi, not just thumb it down.

    Brilliant, but also shocking (in a good way)! Just wasn’t expecting that. Very disciplined performance. I’ve been saying it for ages, but drop Ozil for the big games, especially away from home, and look what happens. EVERYONE was pressing aggressively, and working for each other, which Ozil doesn’t do.

    People keep banging on about how much ground Ozil covers, but how much of it is effective? He doesn’t go with runners when a one-two is played around him, and he doesn’t try and win the ball back. He’ll just stand there in front of an opponent, and that’s it! If Ozil walks straight back in the team I’ll be fuming! Fantastic pressing from everyone, and I have to say that Ramsey was excellent! Lacazette had a shocker today, and hopefully that’s out of his system.

    Praise for Wenger as well, but why doesn’t he use these type of tactics more often?

      With Ozil we win 2-0. (You do not realize this, but the other coach has someone on Ozil and that means more space for the others. There is no one in the side to have that unseen pass through, and that was problem for us today.

      Defense is best done by attacking them in their half. That is what Wenger did to them today.

        Yes and how often have we won 2-0, or by any other scoreline away from home with Ozil? Facts speak for themselves! Also with only 10 men pressing, as opposed to 11 without Ozil, would that not be an advantage to Chelsea? Would that not free up one of their midfielders with no Ozil pressing, and not going with runners?

      Do not make assumptions, but let Arsenal test Iwobi, Welbeck, Nelson, Ramsey and the others in his position. If they cannot perform better after at least five matches, Arsenal can always put Ozil back. He would be pumped up to regain his position.

    It was good decision to not to include Ozil… He can open up lower level teams but these games are not meant for Ozil…. We should have won as best chances came to Arsenal’s way… Welbeck and Lacazzate should have made it 2-0… Even if Pedro would have scored still we would won that game… We should regret not capitalizing on our chances…. But it was over all good performance…
    But being Arsenal, they are very unpredictable… We cannot assume that we would win comfortably against West Brom next Monday night… They are very hard to break down and it’s Tony Pulis side who only play with air balls… Corners and Free kicks…
    So we have should not feel any euphoric feeling by this point… This should be happening week in week out…. And Arsene should give chance to players who are hungry for game time not just by their reputation and price tags..

      Currently Arsenal players could only produce more touches and be more creative if there is no heavy pressure from a better team. That was why Ozil could only unlock lousier teams’ defenses.

        You are correct to a point. Top six sides are afraid of Ozil and mark him. That also means more space for others. Right now we do not have an excellent RW to make use of the space. Ox had his chance and could not think his way to deliver the final ball consistently. Bellerin seems to have lost his dribble. Sanchez is still not quite there.

        Ozil in the #10 role, with wingers able to exploit attention to him, would lead to a superb attack.

        MF is weak for now, and back line is good when Koz is healthy.

      We need to appreciate Mustafi. He is also fickle. If unappreciated he will want away.

      Fans need to understand player egos like Wenger. Manage our players from a distance with encouragement and support. No point attacking our players, that is dumb.

      We do not have the resources to compete with City, United and Chelsea, so we need to make it up with smarts. We need to be the 12th man everywhere.

    Arsene playing a balanced team will give you positive results, especially playing against a big team, over the past years we have continued to use players not suited for certain positions, we actually had a player who used left foot on the left side of the field who got in attacking position, Kolasinac to me was the most important player going forward and defending. Iwobi not the creative genius of Ozil, but could forcible protect the ball with defenders in his back, unlike Walcott and Ozil in the same position.

    So proud of the team attitude and fight today. Proves that players with fight , determination and GOOD talent are more useful than players with HUGE talent but little determination and will to fight. I hope Ozil (HUGE TALENT)and Weed Walcott(A SICK JOKE OF A “PLAYER”) are reading this. I have wanted the Weed sold for about a decade already and Ozil is not worth a serious pay rise either. If an Arsenal team can play with this discipline and shape then how and why could the debacle at Liverpool ever happen. Today we proved the ability and will to win IS there and therefore no more Liverpool type embarrassments must ever happen. Slightly surprised to see Ramsey get MOTM, though he was good; for me either BELLERIN or KOSCIELNY , though all played really well and made me think we might , after all, actually make top 3/4. Still some way behind the Two Manc clubs though.

    To all the Ozil haters out there, I just have one question for you: What did exactly Iwobi do in Ozil’s place? Did he create anything? Was he so dominant in possession? Did he have a great defensive performance? No, no, and no. It annoys the hell out of me when people only judge a player by his body language, and not his contributions. With Ozil on the pitch today, we win the game, simple as that. It was a great team performance, and if we keep playing like that, especially in the back, we have a real shot at challenging for the title. Midfield was pretty solid as well. Eliminate stupid mistakes that we’ve committed plenty of in the past few games, and we’ve got a very strong squad capable of great things.

      There is a video on YouTube that shows his clever passes that get wasted by team mates. There are loads and loads of them. Most of them are amazing. There are games where we are playing badly but he is still creating chances or passing amazing balls on and nothing happens from his team mates.

        Vlad and Buggati: wonderful! Stay around here and do educate Arsenal’s silly Playstaion playing fans. They are lazy and live in their Mum’s and Dad’s home with fantasy games. If they checked what coaches do with game tape, they would learn bit.

        Arsenal need to get rid of the most of the English core. Then get a proper winger able to exploit space. Ox had talent, but no sense. Theo has little skill for this level. Ramsay maybe. To win the EPL we need world class talent at key positions and that costs money.

    I thought I’d never utter these words as an Arsenal
    fan but the Gunners are a better side with Ozil
    on the sidelines. The mercurial German is a fantastic playmaker and at times unplayable when
    in the mood but considering his lingering contract situation and recent less than inspiring performances he needs to remain on the bench and moved on in January.

    Arsenal could easily slot Ramsey into the #10 roll and partner Xhaka and El Neny in the middle of the
    pitch. I would personally LOVE to see Wenger bring in a Rabiot type in January but sadly we know how the boss feels about the winter transfer window.

    OT: MU-4:Everton-0. Loads of heavy defeats already despite spendings. Anyone still interested in swapping AW for Koeman? Appreciate what you have and suppport your team? Sometimes several tramsfer dealings don’t translate to success. Arsenals free signing “Sead” is already better than many high profile and expensive signings,

    Considering the financial implications, one of Sanchez or Ozil has to be sold in January – assuming the other will leave on a free at the end of the season.

    IF we can find any buyer/s for him, I would much rather we sold Ozil and found someone with quality, but a lot more fighting spirit.
