What chance did Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have?! Winners and losers as Frank Lampard sends former Arsenal captain to the wolves in disastrous Chelsea showing
Arsenal piled even more misery on a shambolic Chelsea side on Tuesday as they returned to the top of the Premier League with a 3-1 success at the Emirates Stadium. It was a much needed victory for Mikel Arteta’s side following a run of four games without a win, and they now sit two points clear of Manchester City at the top, though Pep Guardiola’s champions have two games in hand and can return to the summit with victory against West Ham on Wednesday.
For Chelsea, it was another horrendous night. They have now lost all six games they have played under interim boss Frank Lampard and look completely devoid of any ideas or creativity.
Martin Odegaard was the star of the show for Arsenal, scoring twice in the opening half an hour before Gabriel Jesus added a third before the break.

Chelsea did at least improve slightly after the interval as the hosts eased off the gas, and they did pull a goal back through Noni Madueke to give their long-suffering supporters something to cheer.
