Chelsea clashed heads with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium earlier tonight as they looked to grind out a result in the London derby. The Blues made a horror start to the game and conceded three goals inside the first 34 minutes of the contest. Martin Odegaard scored a quick-fire brace before Gabriel Jesus got his name on the scoresheet for the Gunners as well. Frank Lampard’s men went into the half-time interval 3-0 down on the scoreline.
Noni Madueke got a goal back for the visitors in the 65th minute as the contest finished with Chelsea suffering a 3-1 defeat in the London derby.
Let’s take a look at how each Chelsea player fared during the match against the Gunners.
GK: Kepa Arrizabalaga – 7/10
The Spaniard made a handful of important saves at the back but still ended up conceding three goals tonight.
RB: Cesar Azpilicueta – 6/10
He got stuck in with some crunching tackles but failed to impress on the right flank.
CB: Wesley Fofana – 6.5/10
Fofana did his fair share of defending and made two good runs with the ball.
CB: Thiago Silva – 7.5/10
The Brazilian talent made a lot of important clearances at the back but won’t be happy about his first-half performance tonight.
LB: Ben Chilwell – 6/10
Chilwell did what he could do on the defensive end of the field but offered very little going forward.

Aubameyang struggled to get into the flow of the game and never looked like he would score.
