So another bore draw for Arsenal at Chelsea, but at least this one worked out to our advantage as we now have the second leg at home. There was little to show from our front men but the defenders were busy and did well to keep Chelsea out again. If only we could start scoring as well….
He was the busiest keeper on the pitch as Chelsea had 20 shots and 6 were on target, so we have to give credit where it’s due. Good performannce from the Colombian
His best game since he came back and he has put himself up for a more permanent place in the Gunners defence.
He could be a good candidate for the captain’s position if he plays like his every week. Top game.
Not as busy as his defensive partners but a much improved display from the youngster
Another one that put in a better, more solid performance. Not much to show offensively though…
Earning his spurs and repaying Wenger’s confidence in the lad. Good all-round showing.
Great game before going off injured. Best of them all until then…
Nothing spectacular from the midfielder today but did his job without too many mishaps for a change
I am at a total loss as to why he started ahead of Alexis or even Walcott. He needs a break in my opinion, but I’m guessing Wenger wanted to make a point. Did get two shots but shouldn’t have bothered!
His early season form has not returned yet and I see no glimpses of it at all
One of his worst performances for Arsenal. Sanchez got involved twice as much in half the time…
He did his job but he couldn’t replicate Wilshere’s impact. Maybe with more game time he will improve
At least he tried, but I’m guessing Wenger thinks he is affected by the transfer speculation, but a bad Alexis is better than a good Iwobi!
