Premier League: Arsenal wins the clash against Chelsea and regains the lead (0-1) in the championship

Arsenal are the boss. This Sunday afternoon, the Gunners won, in the derby, on the lawn of Chelsea, on the smallest of marks (0-1), during the fifteenth day of the Premier League. At Stamford Bridge, the only goal of this meeting was scored by Gabriel (63rd). In the English championship standings, Mikel Arteta’s men regain their leadership position, two lengths ahead of Manchester City. As for the Blues, they are seventh, now thirteen points behind their executioner of the day.

Gabriel Magalhães has scored nine goals from corners in the Premier League, the highest tally among any player in the competition since joining ahead of the 2020-21 campaign. He does better than Harry Kane (eight) or even Zouma, Salah and Dunk (six). And to unlock the game, it was necessary the Brazilian defender, who took over victoriously, with a flat left foot and at close range, a corner from Bukayo Saka (63rd, 0-1).

How Arteta used Aubameyang to establish his authority


Arsenal largely dominated their opponent in the game

A corner obtained by Gabriel Jesus, who had requested Edouard Mendy, on a shot from a closed angle (62nd). This small gap on the scoreboard does not reflect the physiognomy of this meeting. The Gunners largely dominated their opponent, showing themselves to be superior in all areas of the game, such as in duels, even if the last gesture was complicated for a very long time. As in a particularly laborious first act where the opportunities were non-existent. The most important being the diving head of Jesus, at close range, passed by (29th).

The game was also often choppy and marked by numerous fouls and a total of seven yellow cards distributed by the referee of this meeting. This often had the effect of breaking the rhythm. But Chelsea therefore failed to take advantage of it. Worse, Graham Potter’s men were never even in a position to save, at least, the point of the draw.

Aubameyang missed his comeback against his former club

Moreover, their only shot on target in this meeting came in the first act. But served in depth by Raheem Sterling, Kai Havertz shot directly at Aaron Ramsdale, who laid down perfectly on the ball (34th). Up front, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed his comeback against his former club, with just one small shot blocked, and was even forced to give up his place just after the hour mark.

Very worrying, the Blues recorded their first home defeat since April… and Arsenal’s last visit (2-4). César Azpilicueta’s partners are now four games without success in the top flight (two draws, two defeats). On the other hand, everything continues to go perfectly well for Arsenal. And after Tottenham then Liverpool, the Gunners therefore offer Chelsea. That’s three consecutive Premier League victories against other members of the “Big 6”. A first since February-April 2012.
