Well, that was bad.
Kept a clean sheet in the second half!
- The Cesc midfield experiment lasted 55 minutes (woohoo early sub!). Conte then switched to a 3-4-3, with Alonso and Azpilicueta as wingbacks, Matic and Kante in the middle, and Hazard-Costa-Willian up front. Hazard & Willian were later replaced by Pedro & Batshuayi, but Chelsea could not find a consolation goal.
- Costa got a yellow for some unfathomable reason (existing?), which means he's a booking away from a one-match ban.
- First Arsenal win over Chelsea in the league for half a decade. Worst defeat to Arsenal since 1997 in terms of scoreline, though the 5-3 is still a bit painful. Many selfies will be taken.
- Chelsea winless in three in the Premier League, and remain on 10 points from 6 matches. We need to figure this out, and quickly. Still early in the season; but others are bounding ahead.
- This one hurts. There will be better days.
- Be nice to each other.
