However, what followed after was anything but a celebration for the North London club as a goal in the 5th minute from Samuel Eto’o started a 6-0 home victory.
Two minutes later Andre Schurrle doubled the score for the Blues and after ten minutes Eden Hazard converted a penalty into a third goal for his team. We are still not sure why Kieran Gibbs was sent off instead of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who actually handed the ball.
Oscar made it four for Chelsea three minutes before half time and 20 minutes into second half the Brazilian made it five. Mohamed Salah then scored his first goal for Chelsea in the 70th minute. Those six goals made many people think about where Arsene Wenger could be going on from here.
Here are three reasons why Le Professeur has probably lost it:
1. Defence is a mess
But Arsenal haven’t lost a game in which Mertesacker and Koscielny have started together since 1783

It’s fair to say that Arsenal just cannot compete with the better sides. Wenger must take the blame. Tactics & preparation consistently poor

If you genuinely think Mertesacker has had a better Arsenal career to date under Wenger than Adams, I can’t help you.

2. You cannot centre your entire team around one player

3. Last summer’s whinging is coming back to surface and for good reason
