Victory is sweet: Watch as Arsenal thrashes Chelsea

7875364-3x2-460x307

Arsenal overpowered London rivals Chelsea 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium to celebrate Arsene Wenger’s 20th anniversary as Gunners boss.

Arsenal scored twice in three minutes against a Chelsea defence missing injured captain John Terry with an ankle injury.

The Gunners were 1-0 up in the 11th minute when Alexis Sanchez robbed centre-back Gary Cahill and chipped the ball over goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

Minutes later it was 2-0 when Theo Walcott finished off a slick Arsenal passing move.

Arsenal had not beaten Chelsea in nine matches, had 3 goals to 0 by the 40th minute when Mesut Ozil and Sanchez exchanged passes and Ozil volleyed home.

“It was an outstanding team performance,” Wenger told the BBC. “We played with spirit and collective pace and movement.”

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte added: “I think that we didn’t have the right attitude from the first minute.”

If Arsenal fans had been asked earlier in the day if they could win with such glamor, a lot of them would have placed a bet against it.
