Arsenal returned to the summit of the Premier League table, after edging West London side Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.
The Gunners dominated all through but could not find the breakthrough as the first half finished goalless. The second half saw Mikel Arteta’s side come through, as defender Gabriel turned home a Bukayo Saka corner-kick from close range which saw Arsenal overtake reigning champions Manchester City to go back to the top of the table.
