Arsenal vs. Chelsea, Community Shield: Second half thread

Chelsea have worked arguably the best chance of the match so far, but Ramires managed to head wide from 5 yards out.  At the other end, Oxlade-Chamberlain won his 1-v-1 against Cesar Azpilicueta (after our midfield went AWOL) and absolutely lashed one beyond Courtois into the top left corner.  And so it's 1-0 at the half, bad guys.

For the Blues, Willian has been excellent as has Remy when he's managed to stay onside.  Fabregas and Hazard however have yet to truly make an appearance.  Ramires has been everywhere, for better of worse, and had another decent chance in addition to his header that curled just wide of Petr Cech's goal.  The defense has looked below their best, especially on the flanks.

Time for a comeback, if we want that trophy-plate thingie.  Neither team's playing anything close to lights out; it's anyone's game.
