Chelsea 3-5 Arsenal – Premier League – 29th October 2011

Yet another bizarre, goal-crazy game between a couple of the Premier League’s big guns, this time with a resurgent Arsenal side knocking five past a defensively rubbish Chelsea.

Saying that, the Gunners, courtesy of dismal defending from Per Mertesacker and Andre Santos, were equally feeble at the back. However, with captain Van Persie ascending to god-like status for Arsenal, and Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott also stepping up to the plate, Arsene Wenger’s much-criticised side registered a seriously good result.

Chelsea’s man of the moment (kind of), John Terry did score a goal himself, although he then ended up on his arse as Van Persie knocked in Arsenal’s fourth.

While a top four finish looks a reasonable prospect for Arsenal, AVB and his Chelsea side look way short of challenging the two Manchester teams for the title.

Maybe Arsene does know after all?

    As an Arsenal fan, the way Chelsea went wrong was that Torres stayed on the pitch. Granted, great movement aside, he was pathetic and barely contributed to the game. That being said, Koscielny had him in his pocket all game. He should’ve atleast switched to Mertesacker’s side, so he would have some pace on him.

    @Marty, Chelsea went wrong with their defending, plain and simple. They had more than enough goals to win had they not resorted to Keystone Kops defending…Terry slipping to allow the 4th goal pretty much said it all. As a Blues fan I’m hoping this will be a watershed moment where they realize they have to concentrate at the back (this has been coming as they’ve been conceding goals at a rate that is troubling for a title-contender) if they aspire to keep up or beat the Manchester teams
