    Positive performance but at the same time, it was frustrating watch. We gifted them 1 point.

    Literally everything was there apart from end product. Lacazette needs some sharpness asap. His persistence is why he starts.

    First good midfield game. Torreira, Xhaka and Özil all did really well.

    The way Chelsea defend, Sunday is definitely a winnable game and then it's only a 5 point gap. Plenty to play for still.

    Good game , only lacking confidence in the final third . Could have popped in 3 in the first half with a different mindset .

    That was a great game plan, just highlighting the problems with our squad.

    Arteta now seeing the depth of the problem.

    Please about the game plan. He actually for the middle playing decent.

    End product let us down big time. Saka is talented but no idea what that crossing was about, wrong boots? Not good enough at u21 level that.

    Arteta had us playing better football after three days compared to what Ljungberg did in his three weeks.

    Good display, the finishing touches were off. Good to see Arteta already making a difference, controlled possession to a much greater extent and we saw some of the things he wants to implement like AMN cutting in, Torreira sticking to the DM role and so on.

    Torreira, Özil and Xhaka were the best performers, each looked more engaged. Not surprising that Özil did better with a tidier midfield behind him, though the way Bournemouth played him has to do with it as well, gave him too much space at times.

    Yeah massively so considering it's a goal every 2.4 games in the EPL.. so much for the Europa League padding

    He was continuing with the trend in this from our players. Whenever confronted with 2 or 3 different options, take the worse possible one.

    They perform better away from home & unlike Bournemouth, they will take their chances.

    Looks like Chelsea is losing a lot of points against teams in the second half of the table.

    we have a chance there.

    People arguing that Lacazette lacks " sharpness " but Pepe had more of an impact in 5 mins and he's not exactly match sharp either. Some just can't admit that Laca aint as good as they think he is.

    Finally, we see encouraging performance. I saw glimpses of what Arteta wants to do and with better players we will look really great.

    Much better defensive shape and ball retention. The final third was horrible though but it will improve significantly with time.
