Arsenal 3-1 Chelsea: Arsenal end winless streak with a derby win

Alexandre Lacazette-Arsenal

Arsenal picked up a 3-1 win over Chelsea in the Premier League earlier tonight and it was their first League win since November.

Mikel Arteta will be thoroughly impressed with the way his players ended their seven-match winless run.

The Blues started the game on the front foot and they could have easily taken the lead but Mason Mount’s stunning freekick hit the outside of the post.

Arsenal opened the scoring in the 34th minute when Alexandre Lacazette converted a penalty after Kieran Tierney was brought down in the Chelsea box by Reece James.

Midfielder Granit Xhaka doubled Arsenal’s advantage 10 minutes later with an outstanding free-kick from 25 yards.

The Swiss midfielder has always been efficient with his long-range strikes and he produced stunning effort to give Arsenal a cushion against Chelsea today.

Arsenal continued from where they left off in the second half when Bukayo Saka put them 3-0 up on the 56th minute. The Arsenal youngster curled the ball into the Chelsea net with an attempted cross.

Chelsea were offered a glimmer of hope late into the game when Tammy Abraham guided Callum Hudson-Odoi’s cross into the Arsenal net on the 85th minute.

The Blues had the chance to close the deficit with Arsenal when Mason Mount was brought down into the Arsenal box but Jorginho failed to convert from the spot and Bernd Leno produced an impressive save.

The win takes Arsenal up to 14th in the Premier League table with 17 points and Chelsea are now sixth in the table with 25 points after their third consecutive away defeat.
