New Delhi:

Chelsea dominated Arsenal in the London derby as the league table toppers secured an easy 3-1 win over title rivals. Eden Hazard inspired Chelsea to extend their lead at the Premier League summit.

Marcos Alonso gave Chelsea a 13th-minute lead, heading home the rebound when Diego Costa’s header looped up off the crossbar.

Arsenal could muster little in the way of a response as they limply succumbed to a defeat more chastening than the one they dealt out to Antonio Conte’s men in September, when the prospect of Wenger besting an elite opponent in the dugout briefly re-emerged.

With a Premier League record against Chelsea of just five wins and 14 defeats since that ‘Invincible’ season of 2003-04, it was no great surprise to hear the home fans chanting: “Arsène Wenger, we want you to stay” for much of the second half.
