Chelsea have moved 12 points clear at the top of the Premier League table courtesy of a comfortable 3-1 victory over Arsenal at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

Goals from Marcos Alonso, Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas put the runaway league leaders in complete control of the contest before a late Olivier Giroud header provided scant consolation for the visitors.

Arsenal have now lost on their last five visits to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have now won 11 consecutive home matches in all competitions, while Arsenal have lost back-to-back league games for the second time this season – the first time that has happened in a single campaign since 2011-12.
