Chelsea have been crushed 1-0 by Arsenal at home – even though it ought to without difficulty have been 2 or 3.
The Blues barely built a single attack in the game, and the goal they conceded was phenomenally soft.
It capacity a third domestic defeat in a row in opposition to the Gunners, the first time that’s occurred considering that 1974.
That is a terrible document – and it’s no longer just due to the fact Arsenal are looking so suitable at the moment. This Chelsea group seem to be devoid of quality, devoid of motivation, and totally missing in agency and ideas.
We don’t really comprehend the place we go from right here – we just have to hope that the World Cup smash helps us out a little. Even shopping for new players in January doesn’t feel like it would help much. There’s a uniquely bleak and dour mood round the club at the moment – Graham Potter’s arrival lifted it briefly, but it’s as terrible now as it used to be in the closing weeks of Thomas Tuchel.
