Arsenal beat Chelsea with a lone goal at Stamford Bridge in the 15th round of the English Premier League.
Gabriel Magallais scored the only goal in the second half for Arsenal.
Arsenal raised its score to 34 points and regained the top spot in the English Premier League, one point ahead of Manchester City.
Chelsea’s balance froze at 21 points in seventh place.
Arsenal won their third consecutive victory at Chelsea in the English Premier League, and reached 4 consecutive matches without losing at Stamford Bridge.
This is Arsenal’s best streak at Chelsea since it withstood 9 consecutive games between 1996/1997 and 2004/05.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang returned to meet yesterday’s friends and led Chelsea’s attack against Arsenal.
On the other hand, Arsenal’s formation did not witness any surprises, as Gabriel Jesus led the attacking line, and the Egyptian Mohamed Elneny was on the bench.
The first half was fast, but it was also devoid of chances.
The German Kai Havertz started from the right in the ninth minute and sent a cross that did not find anyone to follow it.
The red response came in the tenth minute by Ben White, Arsenal’s right-back, with a powerful shot that went near the post.
The situation escalated in the 27th minute when Aubameyang intervened forcefully on White, to receive a yellow card in front of a revolution and outrage from Arteta, his former coach, who ousted him from Arsenal about a year ago.
In the second half, Arsenal tightened its grip on the match, and managed to advance the first goal in the 63rd minute through Brazilian defender Gabriel Magallais after a corner kick by Bukayo Saka.
Gabriel scored his second goal in the league this season, and translated a corner into a goal for the ninth time since he joined Arsenal.
Meanwhile, Saka raised his score to 6 assists this season in various competitions.
Graham Potter moved immediately and pulled the present Aubameyang and replaced him with Armando Proya, as he pushed Conor Gallagher in place of Haverts.
Saka had a chance for the second goal, who hit the crossbar in the 68th minute.
Arsenal’s chances continued, and Odegaard hit the goal after a unique single break from Jesus in the 76th minute.
Potter moved again and paid Mateo Kovacic and Christian Pulisic instead of Mason Mount and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
On the other hand, Arteta withdrew Oleksandr Zinchenko and replaced him with Scottish Kieran Tierney.
And the Egyptian Mohamed Elneny appeared in the 78th minute by entering instead of Odegaard, and Rob Holding also participated in the place of Gabriel Martinelli.
