Arsenal defeated Chelsea and returned to the top of the English Premier League (EPL).
Arsenal defeated Chelsea 3-1 with Martin Odegaard’s multi-goal in the EPL Round 34 home game held at the Emirates Stadium in London, England on the 3rd (Korean time). With this, Arsenal got out of the last 4 matches (3 draws, 1 loss) and took a valuable 1 win, recapturing the league leader with 78 points (24 wins, 6 draws, 4 losses).
The main character of the victory on this day was the captain Martin Ödegor. In the 18th minute of the first half, he scored the opening goal by connecting a low cross from Zaka with a left-footed non-stop shot. Then, in the 31st minute of the first half, Zaka’s cross led to a goal. Arsenal finished the first half 3-0 with Gabriel Jesus scoring an additional goal three minutes later. Chelsea made up for a goal by Noni Madueke in the 20th minute of the second half, but it was not enough to turn the game around. Chelsea, who suffered four consecutive defeats, was in 12th place (39 points, 10 wins, 9 draws, 14 losses).
Arsenal, who recaptured the top spot with the victory on this day, will be able to continue the spark of hope for the championship. Arsenal held the top spot throughout this season, but lost 1-4 against Manchester City (Man City) in the previous game, giving up the lead to Man City. In particular, the atmosphere of the team as a whole sank as they did not win for 4 games. For Arsenal, the victory over Chelsea became an opportunity to rebound.스포츠토토

Arsenal, unable to win on their own, is in a position to accumulate as many points as possible in the remaining four games and wait for Man City to slump. On the other hand, Manchester City are currently on an eight-game winning streak.
