Chelsea fell to a second consecutive Premier League defeat on Sunday lunchtime, limply succumbing to a 1-0 defeat which sent Arsenal back to the top of the table.
Arsenal had the better of a stodgy contest weighed down by interplay in the middle third but light in action inside either penalty box. Neither side created a glut of chances but Gabriel Magalhaes was on hand to stab over from close range in the second half, securing a third straight Stamford Bridge victory for the Gunners.
Chelsea buzzed around their visitors with an eager press which stymied the league leaders for long swathes. Arsenal did offer flashes of fluency, weaving their way through the first wave of pressure but time and again failed to deliver an accurate final ball.
