Arsenal had started the game against Chelsea the brighter of the two sides, and it didn’t take long for their dominance to result in a goal as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pounced on a free header beating Emerson Palmieri to put Arsenal in front.
Chelsea started to find their way back into the game with the introduction of Jorginho in the first-half but couldn’t find a way past what seemed to be a strong Arsenal defence.
Jorginho scored an easy goal with a simple tap in following an error from Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno. He attempted to claim a cross from Mason Mount, but completely misjudged the ball which then fell in front of Jorginho to tap home unmarked from two yards out.
Tammy Abraham secured a Chelsea victory five minutes later as the Blues won the game 2-1.
A disappointed Leno posted on social media: “Very tough day today😒 but I have to look forward 💪🏽’”
Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil also admitted that the defeat to Chelsea hurts and his side didn’t deserve to lose the game.
“Today’s result hurts after our best performance for a while,” he posted on Instagram.
“We didn’t deserve to lose. But thanks for your amazing support at home this afternoon. We go again on Wednesday – together.”
