Arsenal suffered a shocking defeat in their opening Champions League game against Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb last night.
Before this fixture, Zagreb had lost their previous 5 games against English opposition and Arsenal were considered favorites to earn all three points.
However, the home side pressurized Arsenal all game and deserved their win against the North Londoners.
Keeping in mind the fixture against Chelsea next Saturday, Arsene Wenger made 6 changes in the starting XI that featured versus Stoke City last weekend. The decision backfired as the new look Arsenal team could not gel together effectively. Moreover, Giroud sending off made things worse for the visitors.
Wenger made a huge mistake by handing captain Arteta the first start of the season at the expense of their best defensive midfielder Francis Coquelin. The Spaniard was replaced by the French star when the Gunners were 2 goals down.
Arsenal need to step up big time if they are to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition. Here are Arsenal player ratings vs Dinamo Zagreb.
