CHE 3-2 ARS (PL) – VOTING REPORT #3

THE INTRO

Emotional rollercoaster for Sarri’s first night out at the Bridge as Chelsea prove once again why London is Blue by beating Arsenal 3-2 on the 2018/19 Premier League’s Game Day 2. But are our panel’s votes as crazy as the game itself? Let’s see!

Comment: “Very poor defensively, but, hey, Sarri told us that his team would need two to three months to be ready – I’m more than willing to wait with attractive football and results like that. Small mention for Kepa whose distribution I thought was brilliant.”

  • Marcos ALONSO — 1 point
  • JORGINHO — 1 point
  • PEDRO — 1 point

Comment: “Morata is the Man of the Match for me. Hazard came on and turned the game in our favor. Jorginho and Pedro were solid while Alonso gets a point for the winner. Defense looked poor, but the win was great. On we go!”

PASCAL’s 10 points

  • Marcos ALONSO — 3 points
  • PEDRO — 3 points
  • JORGINHO — 2 points
  • N’Golo KANTÉ — 2 points

Comment: “Amazing! Very bad game defensively, especially during the first hour, but very good offensively. I have no words to describe the contribution of Hazard and Kovačić, the important of Jorginho and Kanté. Incredible Pedro; he gave all he had. Unfortunately, there aren’t enough points to reward everyone today…”
