Yep and once again we'll pay for it, I've got no doubts about that.

Not having Kos involved because he's suspended for the first 2 league games, another moronic decision from Wenger.

Bellerin whips a dangerous looking cross in but its close to the keeper.

Iwobi does really well getting into a dangerous position, but his cut back is deflected clear.

Xhaka dinks a beautiful ball over the top to Welbeck, but his header is comfortably saved by Courtois.

Welbeck wins the ball off Azpilicueta high up the pitch. He tries to break away but he's held back. Booking for Azpilicueta.

Poor from Holding as he loses possession in a dangerous area, but he does well to tackle and win it back.

Lacazette plays in Welbeck. Welbeck plays it back to Lacazette. Lacazette takes a touch and smacks one against the post!

Good counter attack.

Cech off his line very quickly to get to the ball before Batshuayi. Would've been a goal if he hadn't.

Wow really got away with one there.

Bellerin miscontrols and loses possession. Willian burst through and goes down, but is booked for diving.

Half time 0-0.

That was a lot better than I was expecting. We've just about been the better side and played some good stuff at times. As we have throughout pre-season, we seem to struggle with any type of ball over the top/ in behind. We came closest when Lacazette hit the post but Chelsea also had a good chance when Batshuayi got free, but Cech was off his line quickly to clear. Mertesacker's injury is a blow though due to lack of other centre halves in the squad.

Iwobi has been class, looked really dangerous and carried the ball well. Welbeck has been good as well. Lacazette hasn't seen much of the ball but his few touches have all been good. Oxlade-Chamberlain isn't half as effective at left wing back. Holding still looks rusty.

Also, I don't praise him very much but that might be the best 45 I've seen Elneny play for us. Covering an unreal amount of ground as well.

Lacazette plays Bellerin in with a great through ball. Bellerin puts a good ball into the box. Its cleared to the edge of the area but Elneny w*nks his first time shot high and wide on his weaker foot.

Walcott whips in a superb cross but it narrowly avoids Welbeck and Giroud.

Great save by Courtois off a Xhaka effort.

It was a bad sub, Iwobi should've stayed on because he was class. Walcott isn't doing well at the moment.

All you do is moan, Cech's distribution was one of his best today.

Is no one going to update that we've signed a top class striker?

Hang on De Times, something doesn't quite add up here...

Lacazette is a terrible footballer, he's just a little above the level of Sanogo and Akpom, spending 50-60 million on him when we have Akpom and Sanogo is foolishness. So far, you haven't been able to come up with one good name that we could sign.

Thread.

Yes, I've been waiting a while for a chance to bring this one back out.

Bullsh*t merchant.

Go and find some other club to support, don't get how people want to spend their whole life moaning when they could actually go to wherever they think they can happiness. You're such a party pathetic human being with your constant moaning.
