Stamford Chidge and Jonathan Kydd are joined by ‘the smut buddies’ Tony Glover and Alex Churchill (‘The Girl Who Likes Balls’) to look back at frustrating match against Arsenal. (Alex’s blog on the game can be found here)
It was a frustrating match on Sunday as Chelsea drew with Arsenal. Even more so for Alvaro Morata who got no service and no support from Michael Oliver. While Oliver’s decisions wound up the Chelsea faithful for most of the match, there can be little argument with Luiz’s red card, Chelsea’s third in five matches this season. Will Chelsea’s ill-discipline cost us? Do Arsenal deserve some credit for stifling us and avoiding their usual defeat or should Conte shoulder some of the blame?
Ultimately, neither side deserved to win or lose; a point probably suits both. Our disappointment probably has more to do with the fact that we have become somewhat used to giving the Arse a smacking at the Bridge over recent years.
On the show tonight we ask whether Michael Oliver was biased, incompetent or just inconsistent and are Chelsea undisciplined and will it cost them.
In part two we ask whether Conte got the team selection right. Did we underestimate Arsenal and have they learnt how to play us?
In part three we look back at the Champions League game against Qarabag last week and look forward to the League Cup tie against Nottingham Forest on Wednesday and the Premier League match against Stoke next Saturday.
In part four we have some top emails Australia, California and Putney!
