Chelsea came from a goal down to beat Arsenal 2-1 in a thrilling encounter at the Emirates Stadium. Victory cements the Blues’ spot in the Premier League top four and leaves them just three points behind Manchester City, albeit having played one game more.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang headed the Gunners in front after just 13 minutes, turning home Calum Chambers’ flick-on to score Arsenal’s first home goal under Mikel Arteta.
Frank Lampard withdrew Emerson Palmieri and changed his side’s formation after just half an hour, and the Blues boss was eventually rewarded when substitute Jorginho tapped home following Bernd Leno’s mistake.
And Tammy Abraham then completed a remarkable turnaround when the England international swivelled and finished beyond Leno with just three minutes of normal time remaining.

RAM: Mason Mount – 7
Usual effervescent self trying to make things happen and his cross finally did.
LAM: Willian – 7
His direct running was Chelsea’s only real threat, but it was an effective one.
ST: Tammy Abraham – 7
Fed scraps but he always looked like he would make one of them work.
