The saga surrounding the takeover of the club continues to rumble in the background, but on the pitch the Blues sit in third place and are all but assured of a place in the top four. “It looks like things are pretty sure (in the top four) but things can change so, so fast,” Tuchel warned.

Arsenal saw their own top-four hopes crumble disastrously. Mikel ArtetaThe side have lost four of their last five league games, undoing much of the progress the Spaniard has seemingly made this season, while Alexandre Lacazette has failed to shoulder the goalscoring burden up front . Arsenal’s last defeat, against Southampton last weekend, was perhaps the most dismal, however, the Gunners are still in contention for a coveted Champions League spot, largely thanks to the stumbles of their rivals.

Full time: Chelsea 2 – 4 Arsenal

90+5 mins: What a performance from Arsenal. They needed to win to stay in the hunt for the Champions League places and they came to Stamford Bridge and beat Edouard Mendy four times.

Thomas Tuchel looks thoughtful on the sidelines but his team has just been upgraded tonight. Arsenal draw on points with Tottenham and they still have to face Antonio Conte’s men.

The end of the season looks good.
