2) Arsenal desperately need a defensive midfielder
Jack Wilshere’s display will be another cause of concern for Arsenal after this latest defeat. The England international only made one tackle all match and no interceptions, which shows very simply that Arsene Wenger really should have worked harder to sign a top class defensive midfielder like Sami Khedira in the summer. There are suggestions that the Gunners will finally bring in the German international from Real Madrid in January, and a player of that calibre is desperately needed as Arsenal simply could not win the midfield battle against Chelsea on Sunday. In games like this they used to have Patrick Vieira, and they have arguably never replaced the influence of the commanding Frenchman.
