Arsenal vs Chelsea live: Premier League result and reaction to the Gunners' riots after White and Havertz's goals

Arsenal vs Chelsea live: Premier League result and reaction to the Gunners' riots after White and Havertz's goals
'We'll give it a real try' – Arteta on title fight ahead of Chelsea on Tuesday

Arsenal expanded its lead in the English Premier League standings by three points over Liverpool after crushing Chelsea 5-0 at the Emirates Stadium.

Mikel Arteta's men dominated from the start but were unable to take full advantage of a controlled first 45 minutes of play despite Leandro Trossard's fourth-minute lead. He was fed the ball by Declan Rice and then smoked the ball home at the near post.

After the break, Arsenal turned up the heat, as Ben White had a shot deflected by Rice, then Kai Havertz curled a brilliant shot over the goalkeeper to put Arsenal in front. Havertz then added the fourth goal with a shot straight into the bottom corner before White curled in a wonderful pass from Martin Odegaard into the top corner.

For Chelsea, it was a night to forget, but Arsenal benefited from playing first this week, and now Liverpool and Manchester City must respond if they hope to avoid dropping points in the title race.

Arsenal's humiliation of Chelsea raises questions about Mauricio Pochettino's future

This was one of those remaining embarrassing games for Arsenal, let alone the idea that the title race was over. Chelsea had other plans for all of this, precisely because they couldn't execute any kind of game plan of their own. They couldn't do much at all.

The focus should be on the wider management of this club. This was the humiliation Chelsea looked in danger of enduring for some time. There's also a lot for players stepping up in the absence of an ailing Cole Palmer.

Chelsea's collapse against Arsenal was humiliating, inevitable, and their lowest point yet

Just over 24 hours later, the sight of Chelsea without their top scorer and Player of the Year was enough to send the majority of away fans on a return flight across London. More than 20 minutes after the end of this humiliating and frustrating encounter, the London derby thrashes the Emirates.

“I don't want your shirt, I just want to fight for our shirt,” pleaded a young boy at the far end. Chelsea failed spectacularly.

Chelsea coach Mauricio Pochettino spoke to TNT Sports:

“I think you need to be clinical. Like against Manchester City three days ago, we were not decisive, and today the same thing happened. A difficult performance because it is not good to see your team playing like this when you have full energy. After three days you played Great match against Manchester City, today we are disappointed with the performance.”

Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta spoke to TNT Sports:

“It's a big derby in London and we know what that means for the fans. We will enjoy it, relax and prepare for the next match.

“What I want is for the players to be able to manage themselves in the dressing room. You have to leave them some space. They know what they are playing for. That's what brings the team together. My role is to ask them and also in the right moments to make them believe they can to do that.

“We have a lot of games coming up. Let's enjoy tonight and let's get back to work.
