Kristoffer Olsson’s suggestion how Arsenal could have won against Chelsea

Arsenal played out a goalless draw with Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday.

Arsenal failed to break Chelsea during Sunday’s Premier League clash between the two sides at the Emirates Stadium.

The London derby ended in a goalless draw, and the football on show left much to be desired.

Chelsea took a defensive approach to the game and made it tough for the Gunners to create chances.

Former Arsenal midfielder Kristoffer Olsson was following the contest, and he had a suggestion how Arsene Wenger’s side could get the better of their opponents.

During the half-time interval, the 19-year-old Sweden Under-21 international - now at FC Midtjylland - took to social networking site Twitter to claim that Tomas Rosicky would have been the perfect substitution for the Gunners.

Czech Republic international Rosicky was not part of Arsenal’s matchday squad against Chelsea, although he did train with the team on Saturday (see picture above).

Perhaps Wenger did not feel that the former Borussia Dortmund star would be required against Chelsea.

Rosicky has been largely a squad player for the Gunners so far this season, making only 14 Premier League appearances.

The 34-year-old attacking midfielder has scored two goals and created six chances in the league this term, while having a pass accuracy of 86% and a shot accuracy of 63%.
