the revenge of the winter transfer window


Arsenal-Chelsea, a usual Premier League clash between two top names. But this year it’s more about whether the Gunners will continue to dream of the league title by winning against the biggest disappointment of the season. In the event of victory against the 12th in the Premier League, they would regain the top of the table. And Chelsea would sink a little deeper into the soft underbelly of the championship.

But there is one match that the Blues have won against Arsenal this season, that of the transfer window. Last January, they stole, on the gong, the Ukrainian nugget Mykhaylo Mudryk. However, everything seemed to be stalled with Arsenal, who had been negotiating for several weeks with Shakhtar Donetsk, and who had the player’s preference. The latter appeared on his social networks as a true supporter of Arsenal. To finally put on the blue jersey, once Chelsea, through its co-owner Behdad Eghbali, had sent more than 100 M€ (bonus included).

Mudryk fails at Chelsea

Disappointed, Arsenal fell back on a safe bet in the Premier League, the Belgian Leandro Trossard who played in Brighton, for 24 M€. Too bad for the mockery of the time on his inability to complete the recruitment of a player who absolutely wanted to join them. And so much the better for the statistics, since the recruitment of Trossard proves to be a success. Present to relay Saka and/or Martinelli as well as possible, he delivered 8 assists and scored 1 goal in 15 league appearances with the Gunners. Above all, he integrated perfectly into the game set up by Mikel Arteta.

Meanwhile, Mudryk landed in a club without the slightest sporting coherence, where the wingers pile up while the scorer box remains desperately empty. Result, two assists and no goal in the Premier League, and two cute appearances in the Champions League. With the impression of being totally lost on the ground, without landmarks and with no other choice than to attempt solitary exploits. Chelsea won the transfer window, but he proved that a player, however talented, cannot give the best of himself if the conditions for his development are not met. This evening, at the Emirates Stadium, Mudryk will be able to see even more closely the team he dreamed of joining 4 months ago, on the sidelines of the opponent. Surely with some regrets.
