FULL TIME: Arsenal 5 – 0 Chelsea

Arsenal thrashed Chelsea 5-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night as Mikel Arteta’s side extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table to three points.

Leandro Trossard opened the scoring in the fourth minute, before Ben White and Kai Havertz both grabbed two apiece in the second half to secure what was Arsenal’s biggest ever win over Chelsea.

Arsenal provided a major statement about their title credentials as they thrashed Chelsea 5-0 at the Emirates Stadium to move three points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

Kai Havertz and Ben White scored twice each in a rampant second-half performance from Mikel Arteta’s side after Leandro Trossard had struck an early opener in an end-to-end first period.

The emphatic victory, coming just three days after they bounced back from losses to Aston Villa and Bayern Munich with a 2-0 win at Wolves, gives Arsenal a three-point cushion on Liverpool in second and puts them four clear of champions Manchester City in third.

For Chelsea, meanwhile, the chastening defeat, following an FA Cup semi-final loss to City on Sunday, dents their hopes of salvaging a European spot from a bitterly disappointing season.
