Arsenal cut their deficit to the top four to three points thanks to their win over Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners scored both goals in the first half and kept Chelsea at bay to keep a clean sheet. The Blues will need to fix their goalscoring problems if they are to have any chance of finishing in the top four.

Here are three things we learned from Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Chelsea.

3. Back four works for Arsenal

Laurent Koscielny

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has been trying to play with a back three for some time now, but there has been less success than he would have probably liked. He reverted to a back four, with Laurent Koscielny and Sokratis in the centre of defence and Arsenal seem more assured at the back, even when they were under intense pressure in the last 20 minutes. 

2. Hazard blunt as false nine

Eden Hazard was played in the false nine position once again, with Willian and Pedro either side of him. However, it was yet again another match where the full skill set of Hazard was not utilised, with the Belgian restricted to pot shots from outside the box. 

The imminent arrival of Gonzalo Higuain should help their cause for the rest of the season. 

1. Top four race opens up

With Arsenal’s win, they have reduced their deficit to Chelsea to three points, opening up the race for the top four. With Manchester United also level on points with Arsenal, there are three teams fighting for one spot in the top four. If Tottenham Hotspur drop points in their game, then another spot would be up for grabs too.
