The Blues were defeated at home by Arsenal on Sunday, extending their home winless streak against the Gunners to four games.

Arsenal’s lone goal came from a corner, thanks to Gabriel Magalhaes. Saka’s cross eluded everyone and was about to enter the far corner when Gabriel tapped it home.

Arsenal now leads the Premier League with 34 points, 13 points ahead of Chelsea. Graham Potter stated following the game:

“I thought we huffed and puffed. We’re playing against a team in good moments, good confidence, been working together for a while.”

“We’re probably not at that stage in terms of where our fluidity is, where our confidence is and that’s probably reflected in the performance.”

“The effort was there from the players, we pushed, but in the end we have to say, as much as it’s not nice to say, Arsenal deserved to win over the course of the game.”

“We’d like to play with a bit more quality. a bit more guile but at the same time we have to understand the difference in where the two teams were.”

“We had little moments, but we couldn’t capitalise on it enough. They were always dangerous. No complaints about the result, more to do in terms of the work that we have.”

“The pain you have to go through isn’t nice, I don’t like it at all. But to get to where you want to get to you have to see who’s with you, who’s able to take responsibility, who’s got the necessary qualities and attributes to help the team get to where we want to get to, which is competing at the top of the league.”
