Arsenal, despite losing their lead on City in recent weeks, are fighting for the Premier League title until the last round. In the headliner of the round against Chelsea, Arsenal took a 3-0 lead in the first half before going into the stands.
Arsenal have lost their comfortable lead at the top of the Premier League after four losses in a row and even handed the top spot in the table to Manchester City in a friendly at the Etihad Stadium last week.
So Mikel Arteta’s team needed to score fully in the round robin tie with Chelsea on Tuesday. If Arsenal wanted to keep up with Pep Guardiola’s sovereign team, they had to think only of winning at home.
While the Gunners are still experiencing a dream season, Chelsea are virtually out of the running for next season’s European Cups. Frank Lampard took over the team a few weeks ago, but the players under the club legend are still waiting to gain some points.
But it doesn’t look like points against the Gunners either, as Arsenal completely dominated the first half of their match. Two goals were scored by Martin Odegaard, who took advantage of Granit Xhaka’s accurate centres.
Firstly, in the 18th minute, with a beautiful shot against the crossbar, Nor took advantage of the Swiss midfielder’s accurate cross. A beautiful football moment!
Shortly after the first half hour, the action repeated itself like a carbon copy and Arsenal went into a two-goal lead. Three minutes later, Gabriel Jesus increased his team’s lead to 3:0 when he fired a shot past goalkeeper Kepa.
Arsenal lead Chelsea 3:0 at half time. Can Arsenal hold on to the lead this time or will they experience a similar collapse as in the matches against West Ham or Liverpool?
