The best chance in the match took place in the 31. minute. After bad attacked of the Arsenal squad, Chelsea made a counter attack. Willian passed the long ball to Lampard, and the Chelsea captain fired a volley towards Arsenal’s goal. The ball hit the bar, and the net was saved.

Although Arsenal had much bigger ball possession, they didn’t manage to create a lot of chances in front of Chelsea’s goal, until the very end of the game.

Giroud could score in two occasions, in 79. and 85. minute, but both times Frenchmen reacted poorly, and he didn’t score.
