Arsenal beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge

Arsenal beat Chelsea 4-2 in the premier league helped by two Eddie Nketiah’s goals, leaving the Gunners running neck-and-neck with north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the race for a Champions League spot.

The Gunners went ahead twice in a pulsating first half at Stamford Bridge thanks to Nketiah – who pounced on a weak back pass by Andreas Christensen – and Emile Smith-Rowe, only to be pegged back by equalisers from Timo Werner and Cesar Azpilicueta.

Nketiah restored the visitors’ lead in the 57th minute when he seized on another mix-up in Chelsea’s defence to make it 3-2, stabbing the ball home after Thiago Silva’s interception bounced into his path off Malang Sarr.

The win left Arsenal just outside the Champions League qualifying positions in fifth place but level with Spurs on 57 points, with six matches to go.
