Arsenal produced a much-improved performance on Sunday compared to their usual away showings against top six rivals, holding reigning champions Chelsea to a scoreless draw at Stamford Bridge during a match in which they were arguably the better side.
The Gunners certainly followed a game-plan, matching up with the Blues’ 3-4-3 system and the forward players doing a fine job in harrying Chelsea’s back three. The north London outfit were impressive in midfield too – a department that’s come under huge criticism of late – with Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka injecting some much-needed discipline into their usual games.
Meanwhile, a back three of Laurent Koscielny, Shkodran Mustafi and Nacho Monreal kept things tight and organised, shutting out an attack that had produced eight goals in four Premier League games prior to the weekend.
