The race to be top goalscorer of the Premier League is hotting up, and after looking at some of the best bookmakers odds, it now looks a great time to lay some money down on our main man Alexis Sanchez to land the prize. The Chilean has been in great form for us all season, and he is currently tied for the lead at the top of the table.
Arsenal fans took to social media to vent their anger at the sight of Calum Chambers liaising with Chelsea’s Diego Costa after Sunday’s match for Middlesbrough, but were they in the right?
Is this what Wenger is trying to do?
So there has been a lot of talk about the areas that Arsenal need strengthening. Ex players, pundits, and umpteen articles on here, point to a few particular areas that we need to strengthen, and most people agree …
5 things we learned as Arsenal were deservedly beaten by Chelsea
Our midfield needs a fix – What a most terrible performance I’ve ever seen from an Arsenal midfield. No fighting spirit. They left our defence so open and often dispossessed. It was a total liability yesterday.
The new Arsenal number one Petr Cech was clearly trying to lift his dejected team mates after the final whistle blew on the Premier League match against Chelsea on Sunday. That sort of ability to look for any positives and to move on from a disappointment is a very important part of what the Czech Republic international brings to the team and perhaps that is what he was doing when he glossed over the part that Per Mertesacker played in the loss to our London rivals.
Well that article I wrote about Arsenal being owed some luck against Chelsea today after the shocking decisions made by referee Mike Dean at Stamford Bridge did not exactly come true did it? In a way you have to accept that Per Mertesacker’s awful attempt at a last ditch tackle on Diego Costa was a red card offence but he could have been lenient if he wanted.
It is always strange that some teams are considered to be bogey teams, but there is no other word to describe Chelsea’s superiority over Arsenal this century. It is five years since the Gunners beat our London rivals and amazingly we haven’t scored a goal in the last five League meetings, although three of the last four at the Emirates have been goalless draws.
Good news Arsenal fans! Premier League referee Mike Dean will be nowhere near the Emirates Stadium pitch when Arsenal take on Chelsea in the crucial match on Sunday. So we can reasonably expect to see the Brazilian born Spanish international striker Diego Costa head for an early bath if he decides to try another assault on an Arsenal player.
