Chelsea Bounce Back With Derby Win

Chelsea bounced back from their League Cup disappointment to defeat London rivals Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge.
 
Following Sunday's bizarre substitution debacle, Blues goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga was dropped to the bench, with Willy Caballero given the nod to start.
 
The first half proved to be a quiet affair, although both sides did hit the woodwork through Gonzalo Higuain and Harry Winks respectively.
 
The deadlock was eventually broken in the 57th minute through Pedro Rodriguez's close-range finish.
 
The win was sealed with six minutes remaining as Spurs defender Kieran Trippier turned the ball into his own net.
 
Arsenal 5-1 Bournemouth
 
Arsenal maintained fourth spot in the Premier League with a 5-1 thrashing of Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium.
 
Mesut Ozil returned to the line-up and his impact was immediate after opening the scoring after four minutes, before Henrikh Mkhitaryan doubled the lead on 27 minutes. Lys Mousset gave Bournemouth some hope with a composed finish before the break.
 
However, the Gunners turned on the style in the second half, with Laurent Koscielny, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette all getting on the scoresheet.
 
Southampton 2-0 Fulham
 
Southampton moved out of the relegation zone after defeating Fulham 2-0 at St Mary's Stadium.
 
First-half goals from Oriol Romeu and James Ward-Prowse secured three points for the Saints.
