Arsenal beat Chelsea 3-1 this Saturday, December 26, for date 15 of the Premier League . The match, which took place at the Emirates Stadium , had Alexander Lacazette as a great figure, who opened the way to victory.
The French striker took advantage of the maximum penalty (penalty) to overcome Mendy’s resistance. Until then, Chelsea had shown greater offensive power with his important trident: Werner, Abraham and Pulisic.
However, this had no effect given that after Lacazette’s goal, Chelsea entered a raffle from which he could not recover until the complementary stage. Taking advantage of that void, Arsenal would hit again.
The one in charge of increasing the difference (2-0) was Granit Xhaka who, thanks to an excellent free kick, would overcome the resistance of the ‘blues’. Mendy flew to avoid the fall of his goal, but to no avail.
With that result they went to rest. Arsenal was vastly superior and hit when they could. Given this, Frank Lampard made two changes trying to change the face of his team: Jorginho for Kovacic and Hudson-Odoi for Werner.
The detail is that an unfortunate shot from Saka would end up sentencing the game. The winger tried to center, but his delivery went towards the goal and it slipped to Mendy. But despite 3-0, Chelsea never gave up attacking.
He managed to discount through Abraham and could even have made it 3-2 in the absence of five minutes before the end of the match, however, Jorginho would fail from twelve steps: Breno guessed his shot and thus gave victory to his team.
