Chelsea can take the lead early in the game. She can, but Kai Havertz didn’t take advantage of Pablo Mari’s mistake. Although the German international played one-on-one with Bernard Leno, he still broke the goal of the visitor.
What Chelsea did not do was Arsenal scored in the 16th minute. The action started with Jorginho’s disastrous game, Jorginho hoped to withdraw the ball to Kepa Arrizabalaga, but played in the absence of the Spaniard. Although the Chelsea goalkeeper managed to hit the ball out of the line, Pierre Emeric Aubameyang caught him, after which Emile Smith Rowe scored the goal.
Although Thomas Tuchel’s team has an overwhelming advantage in possession of the ball, they have not been able to threaten Leno’s goal for a long time. Chelsea successfully defeated the German goalkeeper in the second half, but goalkeeper Christian Pulisic was offside.
The host can also compensate for the increased time game. They can, but in one action, Arsenal saved the crossbar twice. The first is after Kurt Zouma’s shot, and the second is after Olivier Giroud’s rebound.
