The Saturday early kickoff didn’t go as plan for Arsenal as the Gunners lost by 2-0 to Mike Dean’s Chelsea. Zouma converted from a 2nd half free kick before Hazard had his shot deflected in by Chambers to give the Blues all 3 points.
Mike Dean took the shine from the game allowing himself to be conned by Diego Costa – a local tout wearing a blue jersey. Over and over again, Costa has resulted to the dark arts and it is not surprising that his manager – the hypocritical one – sees nothing wrong in his ways.
How Costa ended the game without seeing red is still a case that Zeus will decide on mount Olympus. The Brazil-born Spanish international was all over Koscielny, man handling the center back and trying to buy a fight. Kos, the experienced of the two center backs avoided the Costa tricks. Gabriel came to stand for his own but it all ended in an early shower for him and a scratch from Costa.
Will the FA apply retrospective punishment? Hope they won’t wait till 2016 just like the egg heads are yet to do anything about the queen-like treatment to Eva, the doctor. How long shall we wait? And what is this about Mike Dean – Arsenal have won just 6% of games with Dean at the center. He has always been a 12th man.
Arsenal lost more than a game – They lost Coquelin to an injury, lost Cazorla and Gabriel to suspension. Will they get back to winning ways?
A 2nd defeat in few days with 3 red cards in 2 games, the Gunners must take discipline serious and tread with caution. Spurs is next – another tough one. Luckily Westham stole all 3 points at the Etihad.
And yes, there was a handshake.
