Arsenal’s 3-0 win over the Antonio Conte’s led side at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday has been described as a quite shocking one considering the fact that the Blues lost 1-2 in their last game against Liverpool and ended up in a tie earlier on against Swansea.

Strikes from Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott in the 11th and 14th minutes respectively ensured that Arsene Wenger rounded off his 20th year anniversary celebrations at Arsenal in a spectacular manner.

Kieran Gibbs was brought in to replace Alex Iwobi in the 70th minute of the game as the first substitute by the Gunners boss. He performed credibly well and was able to brilliantly clear off a cross by Alonso under tight pressure.

This win has seen Arsenal advance to 3rd place with a total of 13 points and directly under Tottenham with 14 points. At the top of the league table comfortably sits Manchester City with 18 total league points. Before they can be displaced, they would have to lose their next two games while the Spurs would have to win their next two games to place them at the top spot.

On the other hand, two recent losses and one draw against Swansea has seen The Blues fall back to the 8th position on the league table. With total league points of 10, they sit directly behind Crystal Palace who has the same number of points with them but leads with goal possession.

Over the years, Kieran Gibbs who has struggled with injuries and currently plays second fiddle to Nacho Monreal was linked to an exit during the last transfer window. While it did not work out, the Gunners left back who would add another year (27 years) by September 26th may however not stay on at the Arsene Wenger led side when the transfer window opens again in January.
