London is red and Arsenal have sealed it. Chelsea beaten, broken, and battered. Arsenal made a brilliant start to the game and that was enough for them to kill Chelsea's momentum completely. The Gunners were in red-hot form from the word go and with 2 goals in quick succession made it even more comfortable for them.

Alexis Sanchez gave Arsenal the lead in the 11th minute after a fumble by Gary Cahill. The Chilean ran through with the ball to chip it over Courtois to make it 1-0 to the hosts. Before Chelsea could do anything, Arsenal stormed forwards once again and made it 2-0. Chelsea's defense was caught napping as a brilliant ball to Bellerin enabled him to set up Theor Walcott with his first touch. Walcott who was unmarked easily tapped in, in the 14th minute. Just as the half time was approaching, Arsenal broke out on another counter attack and made it 3-0.

Arsenal maintained their concentration at the back and made sure that Chelsea had only ONE shot on target in the entire game!
