It was a horrible Chelsea performance away at the Emirates Stadium, as Chelsea were beaten 5-0 by Arsenal in this London derby game.

It was a night to forget for Chelsea against their London rivals. But what really went wrong for the Blues? Did Chelsea miss Cole Palmer against Arsenal?

Mauricio Pochettino doesn’t think the result was because of the absence of Cole Palmer, who has been the side’s best player this season.

Asked whether Cole Palmer was the reason Chelsea lost at Arsenal, Pochettino told TNT Sports: “We cannot say that was the reason we lose the game but we lose a player who is a creative player who helps to link the team.

“We are losing players an that is made very difficult, the management. But I think today, more than that, it was difficult to be in the game.

“Where Arsenal are is where we need to be as well. We are talking too much this season and all the information we receive now is that we want to be in a different position next season.”

On Cole Palmer’s return date, he added: “We don’t know, we need to assess tomorrow. We will see the squad that we have. We need to deal with the situation.”
