Get up to speed with everything related to the Premier League as Chelsea win the London Derby by defeating Arsenal by 2 goals to nil.
Mikel Arteta’s job is under a lot of pressure right now after their second consecutive defeat in the Premier League. Meanwhile, Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea side displayed wonderful character to take the match from the hands of mediocre Arsenal side who were unable to co-op with the pressure.
As a result, the fans want Mikel Arteta to be sacked from his position immediately in order to save their campaign after a poor start. Therefore, the board needs to make a decision very quickly if they do not want to invite more criticism their way. Arsenal needs to act fast otherwise it will be the same story all over again.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are preparing to offload some players in order to bring Jules Kounde from La Liga club Sevilla to bolster their squad. Defensive issues were on display last night as Chelsea endured a difficult second half failing to contain the small linkup play between the Arsenal players.
