Mikel Arteta and his wards knew before the game that a win will be a glorious one for them considering their failure to finish among the top four teams.

The Gunners got the first chance to score in this encounter through Aubameyang, but he was caught offside by the referee in the 4th minute.

 

Chelsea took the lead in the fifth minute through Christian Pulisic who benefited from an assist by Olivier Giroud in which Arsenal goalie Martinez had no choice.

 

But the Gunners responded in the 28th minute via a penalty that was scored by Aubameyang after defender Cesar Azpilicueta brought him down.
