After losing 2-0 at home to Southampton on Boxing Day, Chelsea on Sunday came from a goal down to beat Arsenal in the Premier League here at the Emirates Stadium.

Jorginho and Tammy Abraham struck late in the second half after Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang had given Arsenal a first-half lead in Mikel Arteta’s first game in-charge at home.

Chelsea, despite, conceding in the first half, dominated the play in the final third, which saw them score twice in four minutes.

Arsenal took the lead inside the opening quarter, with Aubameyang heading home from close range, following Callum Chambers flick-on.

However, Frank Lampard’s men continued to grow into the game and were rewarded with an equaliser, with Jorginho tapping in from close range after Bernd Leno failed to gather Mason Mount’s looping cross.

But it wasn’t enough as they scored another, this time on the break after Arsenal failed to kill off the game. Willian combined with Abraham, who then made a sharp turn inside the box before scoring between Leno’s legs.

“At half-time, we said we still believed, and in the second half, it’s a whole different ball game. It feels good to get the winner,” Abraham said after the final whistle.

With this win, Chelsea remains fourth in the table with 35 points from 20 games.

Arsenal, meanwhile, with no wins in three Premier League fixtures, slips down to the bottom half of the table.

Chelsea will now face Brighton on Wednesday while Arsenal host Manchester United on Wednesday.
