    Granit XhakaChelsea dominated Arsenal at the Emirates

    They're even trolling Arsenal in Russia now.

    Back-to-back losses for Arsenal left them open to ridicule, even in the Russian Premier League. Plus, some of the scenes in France were not Nice to see – if you get our gist.

    1. Phoning it in

    Fans on Tyneside may have been grateful in the end not to have to watch Newcastle United's 2-0 loss on the road to Aston Villa in high definition on a widescreen television.
