Chelsea murdered a sloppy and aggressive Arsenal very easily today.

Wenger sent out his kids to kick lumps out of Chelsea in the first half and they were 2-0 down at half time.

A change of personnel was required at half time and Wenger did that.

Chelsea scored again and at 3-0 Arsenal were down and out with more than 30 minutes left to play.

Another stream of fouls from Arsenal saw Chelsea send for subs at 65 minutes or so.

4 trotted on and Arsenal kicked them too. Arsenal had sent on a load of subs and only a magnificent foul on the edge of the Arsenal penalty area stopped Chelsea's attempt to score again very, very late on.

Giroud and the Wenger subs tried to get a consolation goal and their best efforts came after 84 minutes. They failed.

The game ended with Chelsea in possession after 3 minutes of extra time and Wenger must be wondering how many players he should have signed. This useless mob are not the answer this season.

Worst incident in the game.

Chelsea hit a long, high diagonal ball towards the left hand corner of the Arsenal box looking from the Chelsea end.

The Arsenal defender running back to the ball had been terrorised by Pedro again and again so the goalkeeper who started for Arsenal came thundering forward to smash into the converging players on the very edge of the Arsenal box.

The dive from the goalkeeper missed the struggling defender but the goalkeeper looked to have hit Pedro both with his arm/elbow and his shoulder.

The diminutive Pedro was poleaxed.

Questions arising :-

1. Did the collision occur outside the box or on the edge and did the goalkeeper punch the ball?
2. Is Pedro out of action for a few weeks?

I'll try to find a video later on.

The Charity Shield is underway.

Pedro is on and he's playing with a giant face mask.

The referee is going to need some help as this one is going to get warmer.

Chelsea got some stick from the pundits last night - Feller called Wright from Arsenal led the way - again.

A guy from the Daily Mail called the lads "Blue Fools" and he wasn't far off the mark.

Instant red for a bad tackle by the skipper and Fabregas had two yellows - the second of which should have been a straight red ...

The game was all over bar the shouting at halftime and in the last quarter we were all over Burnley like a rash. We only scored twice though, pity that.

3-2 at the death and the Burnley defence were a bit busy ...
