Be interesting to see Emile Smith Rowe’s stats - he’s been everywhere tonight.

yep, that kind of inside left position suits him. Did very well there against spurs

Aubameyang off for Lacazette. Aubameyang doesn't look too happy but I'm surprised he lasted 78 minutes given the lack of fitness he must have from the malaria

81st minute ... Tuchel looks frustrated

The thrashings at Stamford bridge seem a distant memory. 9 minutes to pull this off.

Number 2 is usually associated to harmony, balance, consideration and love.

Well he has a two on his shorts. I think it’s that. It just seems.. For the sake of it? Maybe that’s the reason for most tattoos I dunno.

I was wondering if it was a secret code that I wasn’t aware of.

Is that because that’s the feeling when you have a good number two?

Tierney’s been down a couple of times. The Var check and all the subs? No idea.

Awesome chase down into the left back position by Smith Rowe with a minute left.

that was a very quick var check to decide with absolute certainty there was no contact on Partey in the box! How often have we been treated to the forensic analysis of the smallest touch for penalties?

Tactical masterclass complete from Arteta. Classic George Graham defensive solidity

Well done Mikel, outsmarted Tuchel

Mmm. It seemed a profile yellow from the ref tbh. If that was a striker I reckon he thinks twice. VAR doesn’t overturn it and VAR rarely does there. No yellow and play on seems the fairest result perhaps.

Wow. What a ridiculous win. Rather a guilty delight in getting those 3 points.

Grim watching. A bit like the Parma final.

Well well well. Did not see that result.
Smith-Rowe scored the winner but he was also fantastic all game.

We actually have a spine of the team who suit that kind of backs to the walls effort, Holding, Mari, Elneny, Partey.

You can look at the performance in two ways.
negative: totally dominated by chelsea, shows how far to get to their level
positive: restricted chelsea to maybe 1 shot on target all second half, defended well and found a way to win against a team who clearly have better players than us

Great result.

Can't say I enjoyed watching us defend for most of the match but I suppose needs must.

Some heroic defensive performances but it felt more like a relegation team parking the bus than two heavyweights slugging it out.
