3 Things We Learned From Chelsea vs Arsenal – The Gunners Are Chokers, Jose Is Still Special

Chelsea sent out a message to the rest of the title challengers about their capabilities as they thrashed a hapless Arsenal side 6-0 at Stamford Bridge. Here are three things we learned from this game.

1. Arsenal are big-game chokers

Per Mertesacker Mesut Ozil Arsenal

Once again, Arsenal failed to turn up in a big game. They were slow to start against Liverpool and consequently they were out of the game inside the opening twenty minutes when Liverpool raced to a 4-0 lead. It was no different today as Arsenal were beaten to the punch by Chelsea who were simply electric from the start. By the time Arsenal knew what was going on, the match was already won by Chelsea.

Chelsea were two goals up inside the first seven minutes, and when referee mistakenly showed Kieran Gibbs a red card instead of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for a deliberate handball in the penalty box, Arsenal were not only down to ten men, but also out of the game inside fifteen minutes. From there on there was no way back for the Gunners as the score line went from bad to worse.
