With a goal from the Brazilian Gabriel, Arsenal remained solid as the leader of the Premier League by winning 1-0 this Sunday at Chelsea, in the London derby that was the star duel of the fifteenth day of the English championship.

In a corner kick launched by Bukayo Saka, Gabriel put his foot in just enough to push the net defended by Senegalese goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, in the 63rd minute of the match.

Thanks to that goal, Arsenal have 34 points and return to first place in the standings, after having provisionally ceded it to Manchester City on Saturday (now second, with 32 points), who in turn won 2-1 Fulham with a penalty converted in the final discount by his Norwegian star Erling Haaland.

It has been a great week for Arsenal, who last Sunday had thrashed Nottingham Forest 5-0 in the Premier League and on Thursday beat Swiss Zurich 1-0, then securing the group leadership in the Europa League and with this the ticket to the round of 16 of the tournament, saving having to dispute an uncomfortable ‘playoff’ prior to February.

The numbers are accompanying Mikel Arteta’s team this season, which in thirteen league games played has won eleven, with just one draw and one defeat.

For its part, Chelsea remains anchored in seventh place, outside the European positions, with 21 points, already 13 behind its rival this Sunday.

There are already four games in a row that Chelsea have not been able to win in the Premier League, where last weekend they had already suffered a painful defeat in Brighton (4-1).

The prospects before the break in domestic competitions for the World Cup are not very good, as Chelsea have two tough games in the new week, on Wednesday visiting Manchester City in the third round of the English League Cup and on Saturday also playing as a visitor against Newcastle, one of the teams fighting for high places in this Premier League.
