Chelsea were heroes all as they swept aside Arsenal to move a step closer to another Premier League crown.

Here’s our scores on the doors out of 10 for the magical Blues.

Cesar Azpilicueta 7: Dependable and solid as ever in defence.

Hey, ho, up he rises: Marcos Alonso scores

Gary Cahill 7: Strong as always when required.

David Luiz 8: Dominant in the heart of the rear-guard.

Marcos Alonso 7: A goal amid plenty of threat.

N’Golo Kante 8: A wasp-like presence in midfield repeatedly stealing the ball high up the pitch.

Victor Moses 7: Produced plenty of powerful surges forward.

Pedro 7: An assist accompanied by plenty of hard work.

Subs:

Cesc Fabregas (on for Hazard 83) 7: added to the ignominy for his former club when cashing in on Czech’s late error.

Kurt Zouma (for Moses 87): no rating

The match...

Eden Hazard’s latest classic saw Chelsea take another huge stride towards the Premiership title at the expense of challengers Arsenal.

The Belgian, so disappointed to have been taken off by the time Diego Costa’s penalty was missed against Liverpool on Tuesday, left an indelible mark on this contest with a magical goal on 53 minutes.

Track: Alexis Sanchez has Cesar Azpilicueta on his tail

He shrugged off Francis Coquelin’s foul before leaving first Laurent Koscieny and then Shkodran Mustafi floundering as he weaved through to score the goal which could come to be seen as the title clincher.

His stunner added to Marcos Alonso’s 13th minute header, the wingback heading in after Costa’s effort had crashed off the bar.

Cesc Fabregas added a third in a late cameo before Olivier Giroud’s stoppage time header which barely registered as a consolation.
