Arsenal Brush Aside Chelsea

English Premier League 

Result: Arsenal 3-0 Chelsea

Date: 24 September 2016

Venue: Emirates Stadium

Arsenal proved too strong for Chelsea, as the Gunners ran out 3-0 winners at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening.

The Gunners broke the deadlock after 11 minutes as Alexis Sanchez dispossess Gary Cahill, before calmly slotting past Thibuat Courtous.

The hosts doubled their lead three minutes as Hector Bellerin picked out Theo Walcott with a fine cross and the forward made no mistake from close range.

Arsenal were dealt a blow after 32 minutes when Francis Coquelin was forced off with an injury. He was replaced by Granit Xhaka.

It got better for the hosts just before the halftime break, as Sanchez turned provider to tee up Mesut Ozil, who volleyed home from close range .

Antonio Conte opted for a change after 50 minutes as Marcos Alonso replaced the in-effective Cesc Fabregas.

Chances were hard to come by for Chelsea, which prompted Conte to make more changes as Pedro and Michy Batshuayi were introduced.

Nonetheless, none of Chelsea's changes paid off as the Gunners managed to see out the remaining stages with relative ease to claim the three points.
