  • Chelsea continue their unbeaten start to the Premier League season but Arsenal's unbeaten run is over as the Blues pick up what could be a very valuable three points at the Emirates Stadium.

  • FULL TIME. Arsenal 1 Chelsea 2.

  • Strength and desire from Bertrand see him beat Jenkinson, with Hazard's shot earning a corner as Chelsea look to to play short and see off the game.

  • Moses looks for Torres but the striker can't sort his feet out as Koscielny clears. Ramires looks to win the ball back but fouls Cazorla in the follow through and picks up a yellow card.

  • What a chance for Arsenal! Cazorla sets up Giroud and his first touch is top drawer but his finish is only into the side netting.

  • Four minutes of stoppage time to be played.

  • Cazorla fires another effort over but in fairness he isn't too far off from finding the top left corner after Walcott's pull-back.

  • Arteta concedes a foul on Ivanovic as Chelsea continue to look strong in defence with the Gunners left with just a few minutes to pull themselves level.

  • Moses goes for power from Torres' knock-down but it's power over precision as the ball flies over the bar.

  • Gervinho fumes as the linesman's flag raises to catch him offside. Replays show the striker had marginally skipped past the Chelsea back four.

  • Mata walks off after a superb shift to be replaced by Bertrand.

  • Arsenal hit the post! Koscielny's header glances the woodwork with Vermaelen then caught offside as he tried to keep the attack alive.

  • Another solid cross from Chamberlain eludes his team-mates, with Arteta collecting on the left before drawing a needless foul from Ramires.

  • Chelsea sub now as Cahill replaces the enigmatic Luiz.

  • Koscielny takes Mata's shot to the face, as well as Giroud's face, and the Arsenal defender is down in some distress.

  • Chamberlain concedes possession poorly as Mikel intercepts and plays Chelsea forward. Mata then goes down right on the edge of the box under Gibbs' challenge.

  • Chamberlain hogs the right side and finds space before crossing in with Terry again positioned excellently to clear. Gibbs then goes for goal from range but continues the trend of long-range efforts sailing over the bar.

  • Moses speculatively fires a header from 20 yards, with the result an effort that flies some way high and wide of goal.

  • Cole plays a good role in a Chelsea build-up from the left, earning a corner as his cross deflects off Jenkinson.

  • Oscar comes off for Chelsea with Moses the man replacing him.
