THIRD October 1992.
This match was Arsenal πŸŸ₯⬜ v Chelsea 🟦🟦. Played at Highbury, this game was under the New 'Premier League' era. Arsenal won the match 2 - 1, Paul Merson ⚽πŸ₯… and Ian Wright ⚽πŸ₯… scored the Arsenal goals. Dennis Wise had scored the equaliser for Chelsea.
This London Derby attracted a crowd of 27,780. A reduced crowd I believe, due to the North Bank Stand being rebuilt.

Arsenal Quotes

A competent coach must speak to the child within each player, to the adolescent he was and the adult he is now. Too often a coach tends only to speak to the adult, issuing commands for performance, for victory, for reflection, to the detriment of the child who is playing for pleasure, living in the present.
