  • Jose Mourinho paid Arsène Wenger a tribute of sorts, but made clear the pair were not “friends” and suggested that the Arsenal manager is judged far more favourably for similar indiscretions.

  • Just under 15 minutes until kick off at a sun-drenched Stamford Bridge, fortunately that means not having to put up with much more of Ian Wright's 'punditry'... 
    3/22/2014 12:35:23 PM
  • The players are in the tunnel, this London derby is about to kick off. What a way to start the weekend of football.
    3/22/2014 12:42:01 PM


  • 3/22/2014 12:43:38 PM
  • Chelsea 0 Arsenal 0: We're off!
    3/22/2014 12:47:54 PM
  • Chelsea 0 Arsenal 0: Hazard plays in Andre Schurrle with a great ball but the German is just offside. Fortunate for Arsenal as he was clear through on goal. Then Giroud forces Cech to dive full stretch to keep one out at the other end. Lively start.
    3/22/2014 12:50:47 PM
  • GOAL! Chelsea 1 Arsenal 0 - Samuel Eto'o
    What a start! Chelsea counter after Arsenal's chance and suddenly Schurrle and Eto'o have a two on one, Schurrle's ball to Eto'o isn't great and the striker has to cut back to form a shooting chance, but he takes full advantage of it, firing past the keeper into the far corner. Great finish.
    3/22/2014 12:51:06 PM
  • GOAL! Chelsea 2 Arsenal 0 - Andre Schurrle
    This has been a ridiculous start! Nemanja Matic wins the ball well in midfield and then slips the ball to Schurrle. Eto'o makes a run off the ball but the German doesn't need him instead rifling in a shot from the edge of the area.
    3/22/2014 12:53:23 PM
  • Chelsea 2 Arsenal 0: It's not all great for Chelsea though as Eto'o limps off with a hamstring injury.
    3/22/2014 12:56:27 PM


  • 3/22/2014 12:57:21 PM

  • Samuel Eto'o celebrates his goal 


    3/22/2014 1:00:51 PM
  • PENALTY!
    3/22/2014 1:01:02 PM
  • Chelsea 2 Arsenal 0: Another great tackle in midfield from Matic wins the ball for Chelsea and they counter brilliantly, Hazard slipping the ball to Torres, who cuts it back to Hazard. The Belgian shoots but Oxlade-Chamberlain uses his hand to try and stop it going in. It's a penalty and a red card!
    3/22/2014 1:03:24 PM
  • RED CARD - Kieran Gibbs (Somehow the referee got the wrong man, it should have been Oxlade-Chamberlain)
    3/22/2014 1:05:26 PM
  • GOAL! Chelsea 3 Arsenal 0 - Eden Hazard
    Hazard cooly slots the penalty down the middle.
    3/22/2014 1:05:47 PM


  • 3/22/2014 1:07:19 PM


  • 3/22/2014 1:07:52 PM

  • Schurrle scores Chelsea's second goal 


    3/22/2014 1:09:30 PM
  • Chelsea 3 Arsenal 0: The game has settled down since that frantic start, as 10-man Arsenal try and shore things up. Having said that, Arsenal lose the ball again in midfield, this time to Luiz who rampages forward and has a shot, it's deflected and nearly goes in! Chelsea corner.
    3/22/2014 1:16:54 PM

  • Kieran Gibbs is sent off in a case of mistaken identity  


    3/22/2014 1:20:15 PM


  • 3/22/2014 1:22:11 PM
  • Chelsea 3 Arsenal 0: The game, predictably, has gone a little flat. Arsenal's fans have had to resort to signing songs about Michael Duberry.
    3/22/2014 1:27:35 PM
  • GOAL! Chelsea 4 Arsenal 0 - Oscar
    No sooner had I written that than Chelsea have another! Torres attacks down the right gets into the area and cuts it back for Oscar who smashes it home from close range.  
    3/22/2014 1:27:54 PM
  • HALF TIME
    Chelsea 4 Arsenal 0 - What a thoroughly enjoyable half of football. 
    3/22/2014 1:34:49 PM

  • Eden Hazard scores Chelsea's third from the spot 


    3/22/2014 1:45:47 PM
  • Chelsea 4 Arsenal 0: Second half back now underway. Highly unlikely it can live up to the first!
    3/22/2014 1:50:48 PM
  • Chelsea 4 Arsenal 0: Chelsea nearly have 5! Torres makes a great run but has a shot blocked by Rosicky, Luiz collects the rebound and hammers a shot at goal but Szczesny saves well.
    3/22/2014 1:53:50 PM

  • Oscar celebrates scoring Chelsea's 4th goal 


    3/22/2014 1:58:48 PM
  • Chelsea 4 Arsenal 0: Game has slowed in pace a lot in this half, although Schurrle is ruled out for offside incorrectly when a chance was beckoning.
    3/22/2014 2:04:45 PM
  • Chelsea 4 Arsenal 0: Chelsea just controlling the game at the moment, Arsenal trying to pressure them but at 4-0 down there's not much they can do. Torres does well in the box when slipped into the right hand channel, he muscles away from a defender and passes the ball back to Oscar whose shot is tipped over the bar. However the referee gives a goal kick for some reason.
    3/22/2014 2:08:16 PM
  • GOAL! Chelsea 5 Arsenal 0 - Oscar
    Chelsea have 5! Rosicky gives the ball away to Oscar on the edge of the area and the Brazilian has a low shot which beats Szcezsny and goes in.
    3/22/2014 2:09:53 PM
  • GOAL! Chelsea 6 Arsenal 0 - Mohamed Salah
    He's only been on about 3 minutes and Salah has a goal! Slipped in with a great ball over the top, the Egyptian is clear through on goal and he makes no mistake when through one-on-one. Cool finish.
    3/22/2014 2:15:18 PM
  • Chelsea 6 Arsenal 0: Well it's fair to say this probably isn't how Arsene Wenger saw his 1000th match going... Still more than ten minutes remaining in this game. Surely Chelsea can't score any more? 
    3/22/2014 2:23:48 PM

  • Oscar celebrates his second goal to make it 5-0 


    3/22/2014 2:28:00 PM
  • Chelsea 6 Arsenal 0: Five minutes of normal time remaining, Chelsea look like they could score another. Salah has been lively since coming on.
    3/22/2014 2:31:17 PM
  • Chelsea 6 Arsenal 0: Michael Owen picks Cesar Azpilicueta as man of the match. Fairly bizarre as he's had nothing to do in defence and hasn't contributed a goal or assist. I mean he hasn't played badly but man of the match seems a bit strong.
    3/22/2014 2:35:28 PM
  • FULL TIME
    Chelsea 6 Arsenal 0 - Well that was one-sided... Chelsea's biggest win ever against Arsenal.
    3/22/2014 2:37:08 PM

    3/22/2014 3:08:42 PM
  • GOAL! Cardiff 1 Liverpool 0 - Jordon Mutch
    Oh dear, the Welsh Xavi, Joe Allen gives the ball away to Frazier Campbell and the Cardiff man cuts it back to Mutch who puts the ball in the bottom corner. Big goal for the Welsh side.
