Both Arsenal and Chelsea were looking to make a statement this weekend in the English Premier League. After two excellent displays, both sides conquered their objective as they got expressive victories playing at their home turf.
The Gunners faced an accessible challenge as they hosted a struggling Norwich City side and, led by Mesut Özil, they easily rolled over The Canaries in front of their fans at The Emirates Stadium.
The German international netted twice in the second half and together with strikes from Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey, they completed the poker of goals made by Arsene Wenger’s men against a helpless Norwich side that was completely outplayed by their counterpart.
Chelsea, on the other hand, hosted Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge where they were looking to show a solid display in a season, a place they haven’t been able to show their best moments at times.
Belgian winger Eden Hazard was the star of the match with two goals and a solid attacking display and his performance was aided by goals from Samuel Eto’o and Oscar as The Blues dominated the Welsh side from start to finish.
Both Arsenal and Chelsea now sit at the top of the standings with 19 and 17 points respectively and they will have their morale at the top, as they will now prepare their Champions League mid-week fixtures. The Gunners will play at home against Borussia Dortmund whilst The Blues will travel to Germany, as they will take on Schalke 04 at the Veltins Arena.
