The London derby between Chelsea and Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Sunday ended in a 2-0 win for the hosts.

Both sides went into the Premier League encounter unbeaten in the league, but the hosts were favourites.

With Diego Costa in red-hot form and Cesc Fabregas creating chances at will, Chelsea were expected to pick up all three points against their London rivals.

And so they did. Eden Hazard opened the scoring for Jose Mourinho’s side at the Bridge in the 27th minute, and Costa doubled the advantage 12 minutes from time.

Arsenal did try to make a contest of the game, but Chelsea were the better team and deservedly won the Premier League encounter.

Heading into the two-week international break, Chelsea find themselves at the top of the league standings with 19 points from seven matches, five points clear of second-placed Manchester City.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are down in eighth with just 10 points from seven matches, a point behind fourth-placed Manchester United.
