‘If He Was A Horse He’d Be Shot’ Chelsea Fans Disgusted By Defenders Performance vs. Arsenal


Chelsea were condemned to defeat for the second time in a row in the Premier League, responding poorly from their home defeat at the hands of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool last week.

They travelled to the Emirates Stadium without a win in two games and Antonio Conte keen to get back to winning ways and keen to keep pace with Premier League pace-setters Manchester City, who he had earlier seen win 3-1 at Swansea.

However, things went horribly wrong for the Blues, and they went 1-0 down just eleven minutes into the contest. Gary Cahill was caught in possession by Alexis Sanchez, who used his pace to pick up the lose call before calmly chipping the ball over Courtois and into the back of the Chelsea net.

It was 2-0 to the Gunners just a few minutes later when Eden Hazard failed to track Hector Bellerin, who found himself in-behind the defence. He produced a low cross to Theo Walcott, who finished the move off well.

Chelsea did come into the game a little more after going two goals down, but they were caught on the break by Arsenal shortly before the break. Alexis Sanchez delivered the ball over to Mesut Ozil, whose slightly scuffed shot found its way into the back of the net.

Gary Cahill produced one of his worst performances of the season in the 3-0 defeat at Arsenal, and fans have taken to Twitter to express their anger at his and the rest of the back four’s performances at the Emirates.

Cahill was of course caught on the ball and at fault for the first goal, and his display looked shaky throughout. Despite winning 67% of his aerial duels, Cahill managed only two clearances in the whole ninety minutes.

The most shocking thing of all, especially for a centre-back, was that he didn’t win a single tackle. 0% of his tackles were won, nor did the Englishman make one interception.

It was an afternoon to forget for Gary Cahill, and he will be hoping that he is not dropped by Antonio Conte in the near future.
