Arsenal were "slightly embarrassing" - ex-Chelsea coach

Published Add your comment

Ray Wilkins believes Arsenal were "slightly embarrassing" after they were comfortably beaten by Chelsea in the Capital One Cup last night. 

The Blues eased past their Premier League rivals by two goals to nil at the Emirates, and Wilkins believes were far superior to their opponents despite making a number of changes to their team that beat Manchester City. 

And, after the game, the Sky Sports expert said the Gunners were extremely poor and speaking to Sky Sports, Wilkins said: "We've basically seen a Chelsea reserve team come out tonight and wipe the floor with Arsenal.

"Arsenal haven't shown anything whatsoever against this Chelsea team. Chelsea have been so superior to Arsenal tonight that it's almost been slightly embarrassing in the way Chelsea have won this evening."

Wilkins went on to praise Chelsea, but doesn't think Blues boss Jose Mourinho would have learned anything more after last night's victory.

The ex-Blues coach has hailed the Chelsea squad also singled out Michael Essien, who was a star performer at the Emirates.

He continued by saying: "Jose hasn't learned too much. He knows he has a fantastic squad of players and that was pretty evident tonight when you see that Chelsea can put this team out and yet there will probably be eight changes at the weekend.

"This is a squad of fantastic footballers like Michael Essien who hadn't taken part this year and all of a sudden he comes in at the Emirates and he's outstanding.

"They have a wonderful squad of players and whichever team they pick, they win."

Both Chelsea and Arsenal will turn their attentions to Premier League action as the Blues take on Newcastle at St James Park and the Gunners host rivals Liverpool.
