Arsenal leapfrog Manchester City to Top Premier League as Gabriel Goal Sees Off Chelsea
Arsenal returned to the top of the Premier League courtesy of a 1-0 win over London rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

As reported by ESPN, Gabriel put Arsenal ahead on 63 minutes with his second goal of the season to settle a hard-fought game and crown Mikel Arteta’s 150th match in charge.

Victory marked a third win in a row at Stamford Bridge for Arteta’s men, who re-established their two-point advantage over Manchester City with one match to go before the league breaks for the World Cup.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang lined up to face his former club after leaving under something of a cloud back in February, when he was stripped of the Arsenal captaincy amid questions over his discipline.

His most notable intervention here, though, was a yellow card for a rough foul on Arsenal’s Ben White before he was subbed off in the second half on a frustrating afternoon for the Chelsea striker.

Chelsea, hammered 4-1 at Brighton last time out in the league, were sluggish in the first half, with Arsenal the better side for much of the opening exchanges.

White dragged wide after 10 minutes, Thiago Silva made a superb tackle on Gabriel Jesus inside the box and the Arsenal striker nodded wide with the goal gaping inside the opening 30 minutes, while at the other end Aaron Ramsdale was largely untroubled.
