  2. Are You Wenger In Disguise?

    Chelsea 2-0 Arsenal

    Phil McNulty

    BBC Sport chief football writer

    No wonder Unai Emery
    turned away with an expression of pure anguish on his face as Alvaro Morata
    made it 2-0 to Chelsea. He should have been celebrating the equaliser seconds
    earlier only for Pierre=Emerick Aubameyang to miss a sitter.

    What is it they say
    about fine margins?

    Chelsea fans now rubbing
    it in by chanting “Are You Wenger In Disguise?” in Emery’s direction.

  3. Post update

    Chelsea 2-0 Arsenal

    Chelsea have scored with both of their first two shots on target.

    Josh: Credit to Morata, brilliant play. Never been convinced by Mustafi and that further highlights his weaknesses

    Hassan: That goal is very important, especially for Morata’s confidence.

    Jake: Cesar Azpilicueta assisting Alvaro Morata….. where have we seen that before I wonder?

  5. Not staying 2-0

    Chelsea 2-0 Arsenal

    John Southall

    BBC Radio 5 live football reporter

    The Arsenal team is not massively different and is the same side as last season.

    Both sides are getting round the back and I can’t see this staying 2-0.

    Belete: That is how you finish.

    Ash: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang misses a sitter and Alvaro Morata punishes him and Arsenal seconds later

    Wasiyallah: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang did Alvaro Morata.

    Can you believe it???

    Shambolic, embarrassing defending from Arsenal, they should have levelled but instead fall further behind.

    Cesar Azpilicueta on the ball deep in his own half, pops the ball over the top for Alvaro Morata to run on to.

    A man bereft of confidence has plenty to do but keeps his composure, turning inside of Shkodran Mustafi and rolling in a finish past the helpless Petr Cech.

  8. WHAT A MISS

    Chelsea 1-0 Arsenal

    An absolute shocker from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, I’m talking bloopers reel, that’s how bad it is.

    Hector Bellerin sneaks behind Marcos Alonso and pulls a perfect pass back for Aubameyang, who lashes over from six yards out.

  9. CLOSE!

    Chelsea 1-0 Arsenal

    Now Arsenal break forward, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s shot from the angle causes Kepa Arrizabalaga no problems.

  10. Post update

    Chelsea 1-0 Arsenal

    I can’t believe how easy Chelsea are finding it to get in behind Arsenal, a bit more quality on the final ball and the hosts could be out of sight.

    Full-back Hector Bellerin cannot cut out Willian’s pass, but Marcos Alonso’s cross it too long.

    Ollie: As a Spurs fan it pains me to say it but Jorginho is really, really, really, really, really good.

    Conor: Jorginho is absolutely fabulous in there.

    Oli: Seen more good things by Ross Barkley in 10 minutes than the whole of last season.

  12. Post update

    Chelsea 1-0 Arsenal

    Another ball over the top, this time from Willian, and if Chelsea forward Pedro was a size nine instead of a size eight, he would have got on the end off it.

    Passing out from the back may work in the future, but against a team with the quality of Chelsea is begging to be punished.

  14. Post update

    Chelsea 1-0 Arsenal

    Arsenal are a shambles at the back.

    Chelsea are getting in behind with simple balls over the top.

    This time N’Golo Kante holds it up for Ross Barkley, but the Englishman’s left-footed shot is over the crossbar.

    Mark: The new Arsenal philosophy of playing out from the back has already shortened my life expectancy by 10 years.

    KoloKK: Arsenal have joined the play-out-from-the-back club. But have they mastered it yet, is what is left to be seen.

    Dan: Did Unai Emery sign some sort of clause in his contract that Granit Xhaka and Petr Cech must play every game? Absurd how they get picked week in week out.

  17. GOAL – Chelsea 1-0 Arsenal

    Arsenal ripped apart at the back.

    Chief architect Jorginho is the creator, sweeping a ball to the left for Marcos Alonso.

    The Spaniard is in behind the Gunners defence, looks up and plays the ball across for fellow countryman Pedro, who coolly finishes into the bottom corner.

  18. CLOSE!

    Chelsea 0-0 Arsenal

    Oof, inches away from the first goal of the game.

    Arsenal patiently work an opening and full-back Nacho Monreal clips in a cross which the galloping Mesut Ozil flicks first time but wide of the far post.
