FIVE things Arsenal fans learned against Chelsea

Okay Arsenal fans, we are still waiting for that victory for Arsenal over a Jose Mourinho side and the 0-0 draw yesterday finally put an end to our fading hopes of an unlikely Premier League trophy win this season. But Arsene Wenger and the players are not and are right not to be too downcast, as we have done a lot better against the big clubs this season and but for a slow start, we could have pushed Chelsea all the way. So what have Arsenal learned from this latest clash with the Blue bus and from the season as a whole?

Arsenal’s draw with Chelsea gives us MASSIVE confidence for the future

Although he may not have come out and said it, you just know that Arsene Wenger would absolutely love to have seen his Arsenal side record a first win against his managerial rival Jose Mourinho, even though the Frenchman admitted after the game that all three points would still not have been enough for the Gunners to win the Premier League title this season.

Arsenal v Chelsea review – Creditable but disappointing draw

Although JOse Mourinho started with no recognised striker in his Chelsea team, they were not really as defensive as we expected. THey still had plenty of men behind the ball and worked hard to close the Gunners down and give us no space, but they also tried to get forward when they could and get a goal to hang on to.

Arsenal v Chelsea – Let’s win it for Le Boss!

We can only sit back and admire the way that Arsene Wenger has turned things around this season to put Arsenal back into the title race after a horrendous start to the season. The Gunners have emphasised their improvement by beating both Manchester clubs on their home ground, but there is still one monkey on Wenger’s back – the fact that he has never beaten Jose Mourinho in twelve meetings.

Arsenal must attack Chelsea with 100% Belief

Arsenal are aiming to win their tenth game in row tomorrow against Chelsea, and they can hardly be in a more confident mood having scored 20 goals in the previous 9 games, and only conceding 5. I personally believe that having David Ospina in goal has been the greatest aid to our improvement, but Arsene Wenger was asked if he thought the back line were more cautious than earlier in the season.

Arsenal v Chelsea – History means nothing tomorrow

There has been much talk about Arsene Wenger’s woeful record against Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea sides, despite both managers saying that games are won on the day, not by the history books. As Mourinho himself said: ‘I am not proud of my record against Arsenal. For me achievement is to win on Sunday, it is not the other 12 matches against Arsenal. I don’t’ look to numbers and what I did against a manager or a club.’

Chelsea Schmelsea! Arsenal still have much to do!

Mourinho still has a point about Arsenal by DN

No matter how much Arsenal fans want to comfort ourselves by saying that Arsene Wenger did a brilliant job by keeping the Gunners in the Champions League when his transfer budget was basically a piece of string and a winning smile, the fact is that football is all about results, especially in the modern era.

The TRUTH about Arsenal and Cesc is NOT out there!!

Just like the poster in agent Fox Mulder´s office, Arsenal fans `want to believe´ or at least we did, that our former captain Cesc Fabregas still had Arsenal at his heart. He said as much even after leaving us to join his boyhood club Barcelona, so we were all shocked to see him join our Premier League rivals Chelsea last summer and declare himself delighted with his new club.
