Chelsea win at Arsenal to maintain pole position

Chelsea stayed top of the Premier League table after inflicting Arsenal’s first defeat of the season at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
Chelsea captain John Terry started, as he decides whether to appeal against the four-match ban and US$355 575 fine imposed by the Football Association after he was found guilty of racially abusing QPR’s Anton Ferdinand.

 
And he played his part in a victory that was set up by Fernando Torres’s clever early strike, as he stole in behind Laurent Koscielny to steer in Juan Mata’s free-kick.

 
Gervinho’s powerful finish put Arsenal level before the interval, but Roberto Di Matteo’s side claimed the points early in the second half when Mata’s long-range free-kick took the slightest touch off Koscielny and beat Vito Mannone before he could react.
