WINNER WINNER EDEN HAZARD ON NEVERENDING REPLAY DINNER

An at times positively scintillating Chelsea took care of business today against Arsenal, with a goal in either half enough to see off the Gunners' challenge on this fine Saturday lunch-hour.  Fàbregas put the finishing touch on the day with an exquisite lob after Čech's error.

Giroud scored a late consolation as Chelsea were pressing for a fourth.  No clean sheet today unfortunately, but a couple really good saves from Courtois in the game.

Chelsea move TWELVE points clear, temporarily at least, at the top of the table.  Spurs play later today and have a chance to reduce it back down to nine.

Carefree.

  • A perfect summation of how far we've come since losing to Arsenal 3-0 in September.
  • Costa kept off the scoresheet for a second-straight match, first time all season that's happened.  That's a tremendous stat, actually.
  • Alonso equals his career high with 4 league goals.
  • Goal of the season from Hazard?
  • Next up for Chelsea: Burnley away next Sunday.
  • KTBFFH.
