EPL Update! Arsenal Edged Chelsea in London Derby as Top Four Race Becomes Hotter
Goals from Lacazette and Koscielny ensured a 2-0 victory over Chelsea at the Emirate on Saturday evening to make the race for top four finish become hotter.
Before the match, although playing away from home, Chelsea were considered the favourite as they enjoyed a six point lead over the city rival as they both compete for a place in top four.
However, Arsenal made it difficult for them to enjoy a free run as they cut short their lead to just three points with Man United also in contention to make the spot following a run of consecutive six league wins since Solskjaer took over.
Man United beat Brighton 2-1 at Old Trafford, thanks to a penalty goal from Pogba and a fine finish from Rashford. Today’s result makes the race for top four finish becomes interesting as it is now certain that the league is just a two horse race.
Today’s result has got Chelsea fans fuming and becoming fed up of Sarriball which is no longer yielding results. Chelsea’s players performance today showed no zeal, no drive and hence may lose their place in the top four finish. The idea of starting Hazard upfront is no longer yielding result and hence the need for a new striker if the ones available could not deliver
