EPL Table After Yesterday's Game As Arsenal Beat Chelsea To Overtake Manchester City

Arsenal secured a crucial victory in their matchday thirty-five fixture against Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium. The game was a must-win for Mikel Arteta's side if they hoped to overtake Manchester City in the league table, and they did just that with an impressive 3-1 win over Frank Lampard's struggling Chelsea side.

The Gunners were in control from the first whistle and took a commanding lead in the first half with two goals from Martin Odegaard and a goal from Gabriel Jesus. Although Chelsea managed to pull one goal back through Noni Madueke in the second half, it was not enough to mount a comeback against a resolute Arsenal defense.

With this win, Arsenal moved into first place in the league table, leapfrogging over Manchester City who had held the top spot for several weeks. It was a significant boost for the Gunners, who had struggled earlier in the past month.

On the other hand, Chelsea's struggles continued as they remained seated in twelveth place, nine points away from the relegation zone. Their next four games against Manchester City, Manchester United, and Newcastle United will be crucial for their survival in the Premier League this season.

Arsenal's win over Chelsea was a significant statement of intent as they look to secure a top-four finish and possibly get back to challenge for the league title. With only three games left in the season, it remains to be seen whether they can maintain their position at the top of the table. They have already secured a Champions League spot for next season.

Here is how the EPL table looks like after yesterday's game.
