I would go lower, but the second half was slightly better. The defending was woeful. Poor decisions, too many players way out of sorts, flair players in the team not doing anything. It was a one-man team on the day, as Diego Costa was the only one up for it.
They were second best in every area. They made the job far too easy for Arsenal, David Luiz was defending far too deep, the mistakes were dreadful. It was like watching a mid-table team.
In truth, Chelsea haven’t really played well all season. Only the Burnley game was acceptable. Where do they go from here? It is not that big of a surprise when you have the same defence that were so poor last season. Conte will make changes.
