Arsenal 3 – 1 Chelsea

90+5 mins: Full time. Arsenal have done it. They’ve taken on Chelsea and claimed the three points. They were the better side for the majority of the game with Chelsea looking sluggish, slow and bereft of creativity. The visitors got better in the final 10 minutes when they were forced to play with some urgency but it wasn’t good enough to challenge Arsenal.
