Chelsea go 12 points clear after 3-1 win over Arsenal

"In tactics and training we do more with Conte".

The home side were booed off at the break and one fan was arrested after invading the pitch in an apparent attempt to confront Palace defender Damien Delaney, who did not reappear for the second half.

"Have Arsenal been bad?"

UK: TV: Sky Sports 1.

"However, it just feels like the same".

"It's theirs to lose, they're in the best position. They have fallen well short".

Former Chelsea skipper Marcel Desailly is adamant that the Premier League crown is firmly within his former side's grasp and only a self-inflicted collapse will deny the Stamford Bridge club a fifth top-flight title.

Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin had to go off after being caught in the face by Alonso's forearm as the wing-back leapt to put Chelsea in front in the 13th minute. A lack of mental strength, being two or three players short of a title-winning team, poor defensive work - we have heard all these excuses before.

And Chelsea did just that Saturday before the Belgian made mincemeat of Arsenal's defense on this spectacular solo goal.

"But it's more unsafe to hit the head than the legs".

Neither Bellerin's replacement Gabriel nor Nacho Monreal did what should have been their primary job.

A goal of such exceptional quality embodied Chelsea's transformation since a 3-0 loss in the reverse fixture in September. "Imagine having that thinking and that thought process in a game of this nature".

"I always say that at this level you can not play 80 minutes, or 85".

"I am very pleased for my players. They are in a very, very strong position". They are more experienced. Koscielny had darted back in defense, but was as ineffective immobilizing Hazard a second time.

Eden Hazard scored a wonder goal in a man-of-the-match display while N'Golo Kante, Diego Costa and Pedro were at their best - and it looks increasingly more likely that they will all be toasting title success in May. "The opposite of that is what Arsenal have done. I think that shows the naivety of Arsenal in a nutshell".

Chelsea may be continuing to build a lead at the Premier League summit but that is not enough to completely satisfy their fiery Italian boss.

Watford are unbeaten against teams ranked in the bottom half on home form.

We will know by 2.30pm tomorrow if the Arsenal class of 2016/17 is any different. Everyone knew what to expect. Arsenal meanwhile are third on the points table. The game did not even change after the break.

"Two minutes into the game he signalled that he wasn't right". Desailly, who lifted the World Cup with France in 1998, insists the Gunners must triumph at Stamford Bridge to retain any hope of a title challenge.

There is an obvious correlation between opportunity and effectiveness.

"I went to see him the other day at the training ground", Hasselbaink told Reuters in an interview. When you see him playing with Chile it's wonderful; with Arsenal. not so good.
