Chelsea vs Arsenal – How it went down, Twitter reactions

Arsenal made the short trip over to Stamford Bridge this afternoon with a bit of dread in their hearts. An away day against blazing neighbours Chelsea promised a lot, none of which bade well for Wenger’s men. In the return leg at the start of the season, Chelsea were spanked 3-nil at the Emirates, with Conte’s side failing to get a hold of an Ozil-powered team. That game; however, represented the spark of Chelsea’s dominating run in the league, as after that game they went on a record-equalling 13-game winning streak.

The game today went on smoothly, and it was only at the 13th minute that wing-back Marcos Alonso broke the deadlock with a header that was, in part, aided by a nasty foul on Gunners defender Hector Bellerin.

Talisman Eden Hazard doubled the lead in the 53rd minute with a mazy run from the halfway line before calmly shooting past Cech in a goal that will be right up there with the best of the season. Fabregas made it three just before the end of normal time after a Cech error, a goal with an impressive number of ironic twists in it.

Giroud pulled one back in usual fashion but a half-baked consolation is all it’ll be remembered for.

This win ensures that Chelsea go 12 points above second-placed Tottenham, albeit having played one more. The Blues don’t look like slowing down anytime soon.

Twitter, as per the norm, had some things to say about the game.
