Chelsea 0-0 Arsenal, Premier League: Post-match reaction

Ugh. Not great.

A point is better than no points, I suppose.

There will be better days.

But this was disappointing, to be sure.


  • Conte surprised a few with his lineup choices, including Fabregas in the middle of the 3-4-3, but he rectified that with a half-time sub, adding Bakayoko (for Pedro) and switching to a 3-5-2. First half-time sub ever by Conte at Chelsea?
  • Fabregas played a Pirlo-esque role for most of the second half
  • Arsenal’s goal right called well offside; Chelsea well in control in the second half.
  • Not great officiating from Oliver, but the bicycle kick in a crowd will usually get a call, and these days a yellow. That debate, in general, will no doubt continue on for a while.
  • Third straight game against Arsenal with a red card. LOL? David Luiz will miss Nottingham Forest, Stoke City, and Manchester City. Time to shine, Andreas Christensen.
  • Next up: Nottingham Forest in the League Cup on Wednesday.
