Chelsea, result (score) 3: 1, (match review) 26 December 2020

Arteta’s team was reborn from the ashes.

Arsenal, Chelsea

In the main match of the fifteenth round of the Premier League, Arsenal dealt with Chelsea – 3: 1. The hosts were clear outsiders before this meeting, but they were able to transform.

Arteta has significantly changed the composition. The young midfielder Smith-Row came out at the base, Martinelli and Saka also played in the attack. The center of defense is the Spaniard Marie. Chelsea was hit by the experiments. Lampard’s team of stars failed yet another match.

Arsenal did not look worse in the first half, although they did help from a penalty kick. James committed a key violation. And then miracles began. Granit Jaka did not just score, but performed a masterpiece, spinning the ball into the corner from a free kick. True, there are questions for Mendy.

After the break, he finally finished off Saka’s intrigue. The winger seemed to be hanging, but the ball turned into the goal in an insane trajectory. Chelsea almost returned to the game in the end. Abraham scored one goal, but Jorginho missed the penalty in the 91st minute.

Arsenal is coming to life, and Lampard should think about it. The third defeat in four matches, and in the table – on the same level with Aston Villa.
