Arsenal Pulverizes Chelsea 5-0, Havertz Haunts Former Club



April 24th, 2024

Arsenal thrashed Chelsea in a dominant 5-0 victory on Tuesday, solidifying their position at the top of the Premier League table. This historic win marks Arsenal's biggest ever league victory over their London rivals.

Havertz Doubles Up Against Former Team

Kai Havertz, who made a high-profile move to Arsenal from Chelsea last summer, haunted his former club by scoring twice in the rout. The German international's clinical finishing alongside a brace from Ben White and a Leandro Trossard opener sealed a comprehensive win for the Gunners.

Chelsea's Dismal Showing Raises Questions

Chelsea, on the other hand, endured a miserable evening. The Blues conceded five goals and witnessed a mass exodus of their supporters leaving the Emirates Stadium well before the final whistle. This latest defeat follows a disheartening FA Cup semi-final loss to Manchester City, further highlighting a disappointing season for the expensively assembled Chelsea squad.

Pochettino Laments Inconsistency

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino shouldered the blame for his team's performance. He acknowledged their inconsistency throughout the season, with Chelsea currently trailing Arsenal by a staggering 30 points. "When we have bad days, we are so bad," Pochettino admitted.

Arsenal, meanwhile, capitalized on Chelsea's frailties. Trossard's early strike set the tone for the Gunners, and they never looked back. White's double alongside Havertz's brace solidified their dominance. Arsenal's relentless attack forced Chelsea's resistance to crumble, with White even adding a fortuitous second goal to further rub salt into the Blues' wounds.

Arsenal Go Top, Chelsea Languish

This victory sends Arsenal three points clear at the Premier League summit ahead of the Merseyside derby. Chelsea, however, languish in ninth place, their dreams of a strong finish to the season evaporating rapidly.
