Arsenal have added a third objective during their conflict with Chelsea at the Emirates tonight.
The Gunners, fifteenth spot heading into the game, were colossal dark horses, yet headed in at half-time two objectives to the great.
On the equilibrium of the half, it was abundantly merited, yet you anticipated that Chelsea should react in the subsequent period, particularly after Frank Lampard rolled out two improvements at the break.
While the Blues delighted in most of ownership in the initial ten minutes of the second-half, they couldn’t keep Bukayo Saka from scoring a third.

Was it a cross? Was it a shot? Saka won’t care, and neither will Mikel Arteta, with the ball looping over Edouard Mendy, onto the post and into the back of the net.
That all but secures an important three points for Arsenal, but what an awful performance this has been from Chelsea. Of great concern to Lampard, no doubt.
