Cape Town - Chelsea went five points clear at the top of the Premier League after a 2-0 win at home to Arsenal in a fiery all-London clash on Sunday.

As it happened: Chelsea v Arsenal

Eden Hazard gave Chelsea a 27th-minute lead with a coolly-taken penalty after he had been brought down in the box by Gunners defender Laurent Koscielny. The Gunners defender was extremely lucky not to have seen red for that challenge.

Diego Costa, who had a relatively quiet afternoon, sprang into action and netter his ninth goal in seven Premier League games after an excellent lofted through-ball from former Arsenal favourite Cesc Fabregas sealed Chelsea's victory 12 minutes from time.
