Twitter was all praise for a ruthless Chelsea side who effected a demoralizing defeat on an Arsenal side, who looked toothless and lacked the fight to beat the  league leaders.

The memories of a horrific September evening at the Emirates were wiped out as Chelsea thumped Arsenal 3-1 at the Bridge to add further fuel to their title pursuit, as though it needed any.

There however was a measure of ambiguity pertaining to the legitimacy of the first goal after Hector Bellerin was fouled in the process. Alonso seemed to ‘elbow’ the defender while heading the ball into the net and the decision to award the goal while ignoring the foul in the process invited the ire of the Arsenal fans.

Arsenal were on the look-out for an equalizer when Eden Hazard produced easily the moment of the game, and arguably the year so far with solo run from the half-way line before slotting the ball past Petr Cech in goal. Twitter was left lauding the Belgian as Chelsea opened up a 12-point lead at the top with the goal.

Cesc Fabregas of all people capitalizing off a horrible Petr Cech pass to chip the ball into the Arsenal net.

An Ex-Chelsea man gifting the ball to an ex-Arsenal man to score and hand the West Londoners a crucial win as far as the title race is concerned. Ain’t football beautiful?
