Chelsea 1 – 0 Arsenal · Match Reports
We made Arsenal look very ordinary. Drogba’s goal was a touch fortunate but we deserved the win. They never really threatened Petr Cech’s goal.
Arsene Wenger will eventually realise that his tactics (trying to pass the ball into the net) are utterly useless against a top class defence like ours. Expect much whingeing from the Frenchman.
