Pierre-Emerick Obameyang tasted humiliation against his former team.
Chelsea lost 1-3 to Arsenal in the 34th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Emirates Stadium in London, England at 4 am (Korean time) on the 3rd. As a result, Arsenal (78 points) surpassed Manchester City (76 points) to become first, while Chelsea remained in 12th place (39 points) without gaining any points.
Chelsea desperately needed a win. Chelsea, which had been on a five-game losing streak under coach Frank Lampard until the previous game against Brentford, desperately needed a turnaround. Chelsea made a desperate effort to deliver victory in the London derby against Arsenal.
On this day, Chelsea started Aubameyang. Aubameyang, who played for Arsenal until the 2021-22 season, left for Barcelona to join Chelsea this season. From the beginning of the game, attention was drawn to what kind of performance Aubameyang would play against his former team.
However, from the beginning, Chelsea gave Arsenal the atmosphere. Arsenal scored the opening goal in the 18th minute of the first half. Granit Xhaka landed a grounder cross from the left, which Martin Odegard finished with a shot. Arsenal, who succeeded in overpowering the steamer, continued to push Chelsea.
Chelsea started to fall apart. In the 31st minute of the first half, Zaka sent a low cross from the left, and Odegaard finished with his left foot. Arsenal, who took two points ahead at once, completely broke Chelsea’s momentum and started to play according to their own pattern.메이저놀이터
Chelsea was helpless. In the 34th minute of the first half, Ben White’s cross from the right caused a confusion, and Gabriel Jesus scored the last shot. Arsenal, who finished with a 3-0 lead in the first half, had a good second half, and it was the worst first half for Chelsea. In the 20th minute of the second half, Chelsea seemed to be preparing a foothold for the pursuit with Noni Madueke’s goal, but Arsenal stepped up and the game eventually ended with Arsenal winning 3-1.
On this day, against Arsenal, his home team, Obameyang did not perform well. Aubameyang only touched a total of 9 times that day and failed to fire a single shot. Eventually, as soon as the second half started, he tasted the humiliation of being replaced by Kai Havertz. Aubameyang, who has only scored one goal in 15 matches in the league wearing a Chelsea uniform this season, is having a season of humiliation.
