Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has shocker as Arsenal lose at Chelsea


Veteran Cech, 36, struggled with Emery's demands to play out from the back against City and nearly scored a comical own goal by passing the ball inches past his own post. Unai Emery would want to continue that record and will potentially have to tweak his side with necessary changes to avoid a defeat against the Blues.

According to an article seen by Game Yetu on English news outlet the Mirror, Emery will choose Cech again over Leno as the team prepares to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Arsenal responded and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was denied by a near-post save from keeper Kepa and then, a minute before Chelsea doubled their lead, squandered a glorious chance to haul Arsenal level.

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has offered his predictions ahead of Chelsea's clash with Arsenal and Fulham's visit to Tottenham today.

Jorginho is Chelsea's quarterback and he is capable of doing wonderful things offensively. Far from it. Sarri scratched his head as Arsenal got in down the flanks on seven occasions in the first half and scored with two of their attempt as Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang were both guilty of awful misses.

But by playing Bellerin further forward, the youngster would be free to use his athletic qualities to better use and provide the attacking edge that he offered at Stamford Bridge. Still, they haven't beaten us in 90 minutes in the six various games we have played in the previous year, and we have kept a clean sheet on our last two visits, so don't give up hope!

Chelsea are also undergoing a transition period under Maurizio Sarri and the Italian's philosophy is yet to be ingrained into the minds of his players.

"I believe in our team, I believe in our players".

While this game does come early in the season it could give an indicator as to which club is better equipped to regain a position in the top-four.

"If you look at all the goals he gets, he runs from deeper".

He was also plagued by injury problems in north London and retired in 2017, one year after leaving Arsenal for his boyhood club Sparta Prague.

Kepa, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Rudiger, Alonso, Kante, Jorginho, Barkley, Willian, Morata, Hazard. Saturday proved it will be nerve-wracking for their fans but quite a lot of fun for neutrals.
