Chelsea Vs Arsenal kicked off yesterday evening for an exciting match between two London clubs, MySportDab reports.
For Chelsea, they were trying to qualify for the Champions League next season.
Although, Chelsea will still qualify if they win the Champions League final against Manchester City and finish outside the top four.
But for Arsenal, they won’t play European football at all next season, for the first time in a long while.
Arsenal Coach Mikel Arteta is under pressure to improve the team or face being sacked by the club.
During the match, midfielder Jorginho made a big mistake which led to Arsenal’s goal.
Jorginho played a back pass to goalkeeper Kepa, who did everything possible to avoid a goal but the ball still scored from smith rowe.
I'd blame Zouma.
He could have chosen a different pass (to the left) – after Jorginho hastily returned the pass to him.
