In a match that will be remembered for years to come, Arsenal produced a scintillating display to demolish Chelsea 5-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night. This resounding victory not only cemented Arsenal’s position as top contenders for the Premier League title but also saw them break multiple records in the process.

Leandro Trossard opened the scoring with a beautifully crafted goal in the first half, setting the tone for a dominant performance from Mikel Arteta’s side. The floodgates opened in the second half as Kai Havertz and Ben White both scored braces, with White netting his first career double. The 5-0 scoreline was a testament to Arsenal’s ruthless efficiency in front of goal, as they tore apart a hapless Chelsea defence.

This victory marked a historic milestone for Arsenal, as they became the first team in top-flight history to win three London derby matches by five or more goals in a single season. According to football statistician Tom Ede on X, “The Arsenal are the first team in top-flight history to win 3 London derby matches by 5+ goals in a single season.”


Arsenal’s impressive record in London derbies this season now stands at six wins, three draws, and two losses in 11 matches, with 27 goals scored and 11 conceded. Their only defeats have come against West Ham and Fulham, and they will be looking to maintain their dominance in the capital when they face Tottenham Hotspur next.

The Gunners’ title rivals will be taking note of this performance, as Arsenal’s goal difference has been significantly boosted by several thrashing victories. With Manchester City and Liverpool both faltering in recent weeks, Arsenal are well-positioned to capitalize and bring home the Premier League crown.

Mikel Arteta’s side has been in scintillating form, with just one league defeat since December. Their impressive goal difference has been boosted by several thrashing victories, including this 5-0 win over Chelsea. According to Arsenal, “We are proud to have achieved this record and look forward to continuing our strong form in London derbies.” (Arsenal FC, April 24, 2024).
