0-1 Torres 20'
1-1 Gervinho 43'
1-2 Mata 53'
Good watch, i really though Arsenal might sneak in a second goal. But Chelsea did gave them any room.
NOT good enough! Crap set piece defending again!
Yeah, two soft goals. Chelsea really gave them no room in midfield though. And I really don't know what was up with Vermalaen today, giving away stupid free kicks, one which led to the goal. I thought Cech played great as well.
... would have liked to have seen Walcott starting though, but it seems Arsene is intent on subbing him until he signs a new contract or something. A shame Diaby went off injured again as well. Such a good player, but he's made of glass it seems.
Good game. The score-line would've much crazier if the players were more clinical with their chances (which there were plenty of)
giroud is turning into the new chamahk.. had a great chance to equalise and become a hero at the end
Giroud the next Torres, though some tweets say. Surely he'll improve. Good game, enjoyed it. Watched it with my brother, an Arsenal fan. Not a happy fella. lol Well done Chelsea
Arsenal should have been 2-0 first half. Two soft goals. Strange day, spurs beating utd.
Not really Arsenals strike force may have scored a few goals lately but not many against big teams. They still are missing the RVP factor. I still cannot see them getting top 4 with Podolski and Giroud as a strike force.
I wasn't quite sure how we'd do in this game but I'm delighted with the win. Some amazing saves by Cech!
Koscielny and Vermaelen partnership just doesn't work and Giroud really needs to improve on his finishing. Chelsea are really lookin' solid
Great game, loved both goals (Mata's was pretty lucky) Midfield did a great job, Giroud's miss was hilarious so this is how other fans felt when Torres made that miss
Giroud is looking real....early chelsea torres speaking of torres, excellent finish and yeah, mata's goal was lucky
You know your days bad when Torres scores against you.. He only scores about 1 in 3 these days if that... He's definitely no 50 million pound striker..
I wouldnt say they were missing the rvp factor. They were clearly soft goals, the freekick goal was lol. Touched his knee, but goalie should have saved that easily. Wasn't arsenal's day obviously. But chelsea's lead won't last long. Very lucky to get three points.
We've been "lucky" for how many months now? Give it a break.
lol, a 6 month lucky run seems more plausible to these guys than just accepting that Chelsea are legitimate title contenders.
It wasn't luck. It was Chelsea taking advantage of Arsenal's horrible set pieces and shaky defense.
Called it, Chelsea was always going to take this match.
