Another game against Chelsea, another defeat, another red card, another day when we’d all like to go back in time and give Diego Costa a first class ticket for this fantastic new airship called The Hindenburg.

Here’s how the players rated.

Did well overall, Chelsea had little joy down his side, and he at least tried to make things happen even if they didn't come off.

The decision to make the tackle was the wrong one, so unusual for a player of his experience. There was no contact, but it was only ever going to end up one way with a wankblaster like Costa. Should have stayed on his feet and allowed Cech the chance to make the save.

Was strong and aggressive, but perhaps lucky not to concede a penalty in the second half with a foul on Fabregas.

His attacking threat was nullified by the removal of Giroud, he had nobody to cross to. And with Walcott ahead of him, with whom has hasn't built any kind of relationship, it never clicked. Also probably should have done more to block the cross that led to the goal.

Oh Mathieu, that chance late in the first half. Y U NO SCORE M8? Had the most attempts on goal of any Arsenal player, but you have to ask why is he so far forward all the time.

I thought he was the only Arsenal player really up for it from the start, created that great chance for Flamini, made some incisive passes for an always offside Walcott, had 4/6 take-ons, won 5/7 tackles, made 8 ball recoveries and ran himself into the ground in the second half.

Not much of what he did came off for him today.

That miskick early on set the tone, like Ozil not much worked

Hard to rate as he only played 18 minutes. In hindsight it feels like we'd have been better as an attacking force with him on, but if he was carrying a knock maybe the manager felt he couldn't last.

Caught for the goal? Not the first time his concentration has lapsed, but otherwise he did well overall.
