1 Shot and 1 key pass: Arsenal star fails to impress against Chelsea

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere struggled to impress against London rivals Chelsea on Sunday.

Chelsea were dominant against Arsenal on Sunday, proving their superiority over their London rivals. Goals from Eden Hazard and Diego Costa gave Jose Mourinho’s Premier League leaders a thoroughly deserved win at Stamford Bridge.

The Gunners lack creativity away from home, and consequently, they just never looked like scoring. Ultimately, Wenger will be critical of his team's lack of cutting edge in the final third. Despite enjoying plenty of possession his side didn’t manage a shot on target until the 90th minute.

Ahead of the international break, Arsenal's Jack Wilshere will be disappointed with his display. The 22-year-old failed to make any real impact as his side struggled at the hands of Jose Mourinho's side.

He recorded a measly passing accuracy of 77%, while failing to hit the target from his two attempts at goal. Nonetheless, his dribbling caused problems -  he found success in five take ons and drew three fouls.

He managed just 60 touches throughout his 83 minute spell - a total far inferior to the majority of his teammates - and made only 20 passes in the final third. He created just one goal scoring opportunity in his attempts to break down a resolute opposition defence. 

To cap a performance to forget, he did very little to assist his side at the back, failing to make a single interception and winning just a solitary tackle. This will surely lead Roy Hodgson to question his role with England.
