Arsenal back on top after 3-1 win against Chelsea

Arsenal kept up otherwise fading hopes of winning the Premier League title after crushing Chelsea in a London derby.

In what looked like a tricky game on paper, the Gunners never gave their rivals a chance following a dominant display that saw them power to a 3-1 victory and go two points clear of Manchester City at the summit – albeit having played two games extra.

Martin Odegaard opened the scoring early on before adding another on the half-hour mark.

The skipper’s second goal was followed three minutes later by a Gabriel Jesus effort to make it 3-0 and job done for the north London side before Noni Madueke struck a consolation goal in the second half.

Chelsea, who fell to a sixth straight loss under interim manager Frank Lampard, were thankful to goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga that the scoreline was not even more embarrassing and even pulled one back through Noni Madueke.
