PLAYERS RATINGS: Arsenal 2-0 Chelsea

An amazing match by Arsenal FC, and a poor and disappointing match by Chelsea and Mauricio Sarri. The Gunners dominated the match, and Unai Emery read the match correctly, unlike Mauricio Sarri, who became tactically known for the other managers.

The two goals came in the first half, by Alexander Lacazette and Laurent Koscielny, who was a boss today on the pitch in the defense and offense. Unfortunately, Chelsea needs a new world-class striker and some tactical changes by Mauricio Sarri.
