ARSENAL put forth a performance that would make former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho proud as the stout-defending Gunners made a fortunate goal stand up for three points at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
Arsenal’s European hopes have been renewed by the surprise win, which was cued up by a Jorginho error that led to an Emile Smith-Rowe first-half goal.
That was all Arsenal needed as Chelsea asked questions without answers, out-attempting the visitors 17-5 but failing to find a goal.
Chelsea is stuck in 64 points, two points behind third-place Leicester City.
Arsenal moves into eighth on 55 points, level with Everton who’s played two fewer matches. Spurs have one more point in one fewer match, while sixth-place Liverpool has 57 and fifth-place West Ham 58. It’s possible, but not probable, that Arsenal can find its way back to the UEL.
