Frustrated Chelsea defender says only “a set-piece has cost us” in Arsenal defeat

As all Arsenal fans well know, the Gunners dominated Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday from start to finish, and if it hadn’t been for a few mised golden chances we could have decidedly embarrassed our London rivals.

But according to the Chelsea defender Trevor Chalobah, the only difference between us was that the Blues defence “switched off” when Saka’s brilliant corner kick went through a sea of players to allow Gabriel a simple tap-in in front of goal.

Trevor Chalobah told the official Chelsea website:‘We’re disappointed to lose the game, especially when we came into it on the back of a very good result and performance in the Champions League in the week,’

‘Coming into the game, all the boys were in confident mood so to concede off a set-piece is a killer for us and we’re really frustrated to lose a goal in that way.

‘There are never any easy games at this level, you can get punished easily and a set-piece has cost us. I didn’t think there were too many chances in the game and we’ve just switched off at a set-piece, which is really frustrating.

‘I wouldn’t say there’s anything specific lacking from our performances but I think we can improve the final details.

‘We’ll watch the game back, try and pinpoint the mistakes we made and ensure we fix them and find the right solutions going forward.’

I’m not sure if any of our readers have ever visited Cloud-cuckoo Land, but if you don’t know where it is I’m sure that Chalobah can show you the way….

  1. That match could have ended 4-0, 3-0, or even 5-1 based on the chances created in the match. Chelsea was outplayed by Arsenal stars, don’t blame Chalobah, the scoreline is flattering

  2. OT: congratulations to Jesus and Martinelli for being called to the Brazil squad!but a thought for Gabriel who missed out.

    1. Being Brazil fan I’m quite disappointed Magalhaes missed out and although Anthony of man United has played well he is totally offer rated just like is teammate Fernandez

      1. I am gutted for him too.i saw Dani Alves is in the squad too,how old he is now?39/40
        Fred also made the squad!!

          1. Good news Siamois ,a 6 week tournament or there abouts ,which gives them the chance to stay match fit and be around the best players in the world ,those that don’t go obviously get some downtime so either way i believe that’s good for the club .
            Great to see Martinelli get in though ,love the way he plays .

  3. I’m not sure if he is deluded or in denial. he’ll probably come to his senses once he watches back the whole game.

  4. “Cloud cuckoo land” you say? Oh yes , we have very many fans who live there, as have all clubs. It is called refusal to face truth and comes with natural fan bias. At all clubs btw!

  5. Well it is true that we could have drawn the game were it not for that set piece goal, which Chelsea would have expected to deal with. That would only have been due to our poor finishing at other points during the match, though. We deserved the win, and we got it, so Chelsea can’t complain, really.

  6. He was playing in the game for Chelsea, so he obviously saw it differently. On the run of play only poor finishing by Arsenal kept Chelsea in the game. Should have won by 4 clear goals.
