Chelsea 2-0 Arsenal: Post Match Analysis

- Advertisement -

Romelu Lukaku marked his Premier League return with a goal against The Gunners. Arsenal were no match for Chelsea. Throughout the game, Chelsea dominated Arsenal in every aspect of the game. Meanwhile, both teams had key players missing. Arsenal’s £50m defender Ben White and Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic tested positive for COVID-19.

Meanwhile, Recce James was Chelsea’s star performer. The English fullback assisted the first goal as Romelu Lukaku had a tap-in to score and also scored the second goal. Pundits are claiming that if anybody wants to watch a ‘Perfect Striker’ performance, they should watch Lukaku’s performance against Arsenal.

Lukaku was immense against The Gunners. He was bullying Arsenal defense especially Pablo Mari. Moreover, his hold-up play was excellent, he was the focal point for Chelsea in the final third.

It may look like Kieran Tierney was at fault for both of Chelsea’s goals but he had a lot on his plate. He had to tuck in to help defend along with Mari and Holding, leaving the space out on the wing. If Arsenal wanted to avoid the second goal, they should’ve changed to a back three and Saka shifting back in the wingback role.

Meanwhile, just before the break, Arsenal had a penalty appeal. James made contact with Saka’s leg and took him out. But it was not awarded by the VAR.

Arsenal’s only big chance of the half came from Saka’s deflected effort. As the game progressed Rob Holding had the chance to reduce the deficit but he headed the ball wide. In the final minutes of the game, Lukaku had another big chance but Bernd Leno brilliantly tipped Lukaku’s close-range header onto the bar. Bernd Leno also saved another Chelsea attempt taken by Kai Havertz in the dying minutes of the game.

What’s next for Arsenal and Chelsea?

Arsenal takes on Manchester City in their next game at the Etihad Stadium and Chelsea play Liverpool.
