Arsenal At A Crossroads After Chelsea Defeat

Match Review: Arsenal 0 Chelsea 1 - Premier League 24.01.16

At the end of Sunday’s game I could barely muster the energy to be angry. I’ve seen this script and this game many times before and to be honest, it just makes me sad.

Although on the face of it a draw is not a bad result, I can’t help feeling this was a real missed opportunity to capitalise on a City slip up and take the pressure off ahead of a very tricky trip to Stoke.
