Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Albert Sambi Lokonga display vs Chelsea
A number of Arsenal fans have commented on Albert Sambi Lokonga following their defeat to Chelsea, with many feeling that he was one of the few impressive performers at the Emirates.
Mikel Arteta’s side have now lost both of their opening two games in the Premier League this season.
First-half goals from Romelu Lukaku and Reece James gave the Blues a 2-0 win in North London.
It proved to be another hugely disappointing day for the home side. They were carved open far too easily on a number of occasions.
And they rarely looked like getting themselves back into the contest once Chelsea took a commanding lead.
Obviously, the result only adds to the pressure on Arteta. But there was a couple of reasons for encouragement.
Sambi was praised by a number of Arsenal fans on social media. The 21-year-old seemed to be one of the only players who looked to be progressive with his passing.
He nearly provided a sumptuous pass through to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Unfortunately, Edouard Mendy read the situation perfectly and managed to get onto a very good ball first.
