Chelsea regain form to beat nine-man Arsenal 2-0 in PL clash

London, Sept. 19 (ANI): Chelsea have rediscovered their form as the reigning Premier League champions registered their second win of the season with a 2-0 win over nine-man Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Kurt Zouma broke the impasse with a second-half header in the 53rd minute before Eden Hazard struck late to seal all three points for Jose Mourinho’s side, the Daily Express reported.

Arsenal were reduced to nine men as Gabriel Paulista was sent off in the first half for kicking out at Diego Costa, while Santi Cazorla was given the marching orders in the second for a rash challenge on Cesc Fabregas.

With the win, Chelsea avenged the Community Shield defeat incurred against Arsenal last month.

Arsenal, however, remain in the top four despite the defeat after six games. (ANI)
