Manager Mikel Arteta Says Arsenal are in a difficult and unprecedented situation after their record-breaking poor start to the season.
After 2-0 defeats by Brentford and now Chelsea, Arsenal have lost their first two league games without scoring for the first time in their history.
The squad has been hit by Covid and injuries in the opening two weeks.
Romelu Lukaku, on his first appearance since joining Chelsea for 97.5 Million Pounds, and Reece James scored the goals and the Blues could have added more.
Arsenal are in the relegation zone at the end of a day, excluding on the opening day of a season, for the first time since August 1992.
They were without their two star forwards, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, plus Willian and back-up keeper Alex Runarsson because of Covid against Brentford.
Aubameyang was back on the bench against Chelsea, but 50 Million Pounds centre-back Ben White was out after testing positive.
Thomas Partey, Gabriel and Eddie Nketiah are all injured too.
Arsenal were booed off at full-time in front of their biggest crowd in 533 days Though Arteta had no problem with that.
