Arsenal arriving for the game after a series of defeats was having a challenging task ahead of the team in the London Derby. Eddie Nketiah’s brace brought Arsenal back into the Champions League yet again. The courtesy goes to their 4-2 win over Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge.
In the first half of the match Arsenal led themselves ahead scoring twice in the first half through Eddie Nketiah and then Emile Smith Rowe, but the lead lasted just four minutes, as Timo Werner levelled things up for Chelsea. The teams were but again hauled back as Chelsea’s Timo Werner and Cesar Azpilicueta scored twice equalising the game. The scoreline for the match remained 2-2 at half-time.
The Gunners were again brought back to foot in the game in the early second half with Eddie Nketiah adding his second score to the game.
Romelu Lukaku of Chelsea who was leading the attack this time was left with no response. On the other hand Bukayo Saka of Arsenal was assured of the vital and very important three points for his team when converting a stoppage-time penalty.
Arsenal gets their position back to track in the Champions League with a huge win against Chelsea
With this victory against Chelsea in the London Derby the team paved its way back to the Champions League.
The team is succumbing to the three-game losing streak and is gathering back their previously lost hope.
The Gunners would still need to gather up further wins against Manchester United and probably Spurs to continue in the League, but at least there’s a chance now.
Since 1993 Chelsea lost three consecutive home games facing defeats from Brentford in the League and Real Madrid in the Champions League.
