Andreas Christensen believes Chelsea ‘lacked aggression’ which allowed Arsenal to get back into the game and secure a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.
The centre-back has started the last three Premier League games next to Antonio Rudiger and has been pretty solid in the heart of the defence.
However, the Blues could not keep hold of a late lead against the Gunners when the Blues conceded through a Hector Bellerin finish that found the bottom corner.
With Arsenal having been down to ten men for the majority of the match after David Luiz’s red card, it was a disappointing for the Blues not to get all three points.

But the Blues defender believes that Chelsea weren’t aggressive enough to stop the Gunners skipper from finding the back of the net.
“The first 30 minutes I thought we were on top,” Christensen said to Chelsea’s website .
“We were aggressive, we tried to control the game with a lot of energy and that worked. As soon as we got the first goal and Arsenal went down to 10 men, we had a hard time adjusting to that even though we should be able to manage, but then in the break inside [the dressing room], we said we wanted to come out with a lot of energy again and try to control it and really go for the second goal.
“We worked hard for the second goal which is why we are very disappointed that basic errors allowed them into the game.
“We worked incredibly hard to get the second goal after Arsenal had scored and we finally got it and for some reason we were not aggressive enough outside of own box at that moment [when they equalised again].
“For us it is very disappointing, we want to make this a tough place to come and play but the facts right now are we are dropping too many points at home, like today when for some reason we could not hold on to a win in the last minutes.”
