1 of 3

Arsenal thrashed their London rivals Chelsea 5-0 to go three points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

The Gunners put in a five star performance as they blew Chelsea away with their speed and accuracy in attack.

The hosts took an early lead through Leandro Trossard, whose near-post shot snuck in past Djordje Petrovic.

Chelsea came close to equalising in the first half but could not lay a glove on the Gunners in the second.

A second half brace from Ben White and former Chelsea player Kai Havertz ensured that the three points stayed in North London.

Kai Havertz haunted his former side in a performance which highlighted just how far the German had improved since joining the Gunners.

He scored two great goals, one from a one-on-one after making a superb run in behind the Chelsea defence with the other goal coming from an expertly placed shot that went in off the post.

It was a complete centre-forward’s performance from Havertz. Whilst his goals played a part, the Germans hold-up play at the top of the pitch was particularly impressive.

Havertz successfully won four aerial duels and completed 22 passes, leading to him creating two chances.
