Chelsea showed their superiority over Arsenal with a 2-0 victory over the Gunners in front of their own fans at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Goals from Romelu Lukaku and Reece James sealed a massive win for the Blues against an Arsenal side that has had the last laugh in recent games.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta however revealed after the game that he was happy with the performance of his team as they didn’t give up even after conceding two quick goals.

“It’s another defeat, the second one of the season which is really tough to take,” said Arteta.

“Chelsea deserved to win, I think they were the better side overall. We had moments at the start of the first half and at the beginning of the second half.

“After conceding the goal they started to manage the game exactly how they wanted. When we had them in good areas and without the ball with our press they still managed to come out with the incredible quality that they have. They showed in moments why they are the champions of the Champions League.

“What I liked about the team is that at 2-0 they never gave up, they tried right up to 90 minutes.

“With our limitations, because at the moment we are missing eight or nine players.

“I’m sad, sad for the fans because we really wanted to give them something special today. Even though we know the circumstances we have with the team at the moment, and not being able to do that and enjoy this moment with them is sad.”
