Arsenal's Cech gets nod for Bridge clash

Petr Cech GETTY Petr Cech is under-fire after his display against Manchester City

In the second half, we played with two midfielders, 19 and 21 years old.

Unai Emery has stressed that he is "happy" with Arsenal's performance at Chelsea despite seeing his side fall to a 3-2 defeat in West London.

"It was very, very hard because we lost the distances between the players and we were unable to cover the lost balls and press like a team, so we were really in trouble".

"For me it is about finding a good balance for all that we want in attacking and defensive moments".

"I think we lost the distance between players because in the 15 mins [before half-time] we were unable to cover the lost ball and to arrive to press at the right time".

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who did later score, also stuck an effort over the bar from a similar position, with most of the goal to aim at. I think maybe in the second half we lost the positioning in the pitch and were too deep in some moments. Had Arsenal, and Aubameyang in particular made enough of their chances in the first half, the story could be different.

Arsenal suffer Kolasinac, Maitland-Niles injury blows
Maitland-Niles sustained the injury during the first half of the side's 2-0 Premier League defeat to Manchester City last weekend.

That said, let's talk about the five key players that need to step up against the Blues.

Aubameyang has said he likes Alexandre Lacazette partnering him in attack and, on this evidence, the Gabon striker certainly needs more support.

"We are continuing this work and against Chelsea we are going to analyse the opposition". In the process, he is one player that I am sure is going to have a good season. Nacho Monreal and Hector Bellerin are full-backs, while Granit Xhaka and Matteo Guendouzi start.

But still, it is important to make a positive start at a new job and Sarri has bought himself crucial time by guiding his new team to six points from six in their first two games.

Emery, who has now overseen defeat in his opening two matches, also insisted he is happy with the performances of Ozil who was taken off for Aaron Ramsey with more than 20 minutes left.

Cech himself admitted that he was being asked to perform differently from the majority of his career by sometimes playing nearly as a spare outfielder and had his efforts highlighted on social media by new signing Bernd Leno's former club Bayer Leverkusen. "We need to give the players calm and continue working".
