Arsenal edge Chelsea in thrilling London Derby

Arsenal put in an impressive performance to revive their hopes of a top-four finish with a crucial 4-2 win over Chelsea in Wednesday’s highly anticipated London Derby at Stamford Bridge. 

Having suffered three defeats leading to the game against a Chelsea side off an impressive win in their last premier league game, Mikel Arteta’s men weren’t particularly tipped as favourites. 
However, a racy first half saw Chelsea come from behind twice to cancel out Arsenal’s goals leaving the game at a 2-2 at the break. 

After the break, Eddie Nketiah put the Gunners back in front with his second of the night, before Bukayo Saka sealed it with an added time spot-kick, as Chelsea fell to their third consecutive home defeat this season. 

The outstanding performance mean the Gunners are now level on points with north London rivals, Tottenham with a derby at Emirates Stadium still in the books.
