Arsenal Back to Winning ways With Victory against Chelsea

A restored Arsenal recorded a significant triumph over Chelsea to end their seven-game run without a success in the Premier League and facilitate the tension on supervisor Mikel Arteta. 


Two first-half objectives set the stage for the Gunners' first class win since 1 November. 


Alexandre Lacazette sent goalkeeper Edouard Mendy the incorrect path from the punishment spot and Granit Xhaka nestled into eminent free-kick 10 minutes after the fact to put Arteta's side in charge. 


Bukayo Saka's cross at that point dropped into the top corner right off the bat in the subsequent half to put the game past the guests. 


Tammy Abraham scored from short proximity to make it a brazen last five minutes for the hosts and Jorginho at that point saw his powerless punishment saved by Bernd Leno. 


In any case, it was a generally dull execution by Frank Lampard's side, who botched the opportunity to go second. 


It was a merited triumph for Arsenal, who move to fourteenth and will trust any discussion of a transfer fight is presently behind them.
