Arsenal - Chelsea: How it affects the League

Arsenal's win over Chelsea tonight at The Emirates sees the Gunners take the top spot in the Premier League as they look to increase pressure on Manchester City.

Despite heading to the top of the table tonight, Manchester City have a game in hand to steal their spot back when they face West Ham United tomorrow, as their schedule still includes their UEFA Champions League fixtures against Real Madrid. Man City will be without Kevin De Bruyne for tomorrow nights' game and are rumoured to be looking to rest players ahead of their busy schedule in order to maintain fitness - after all, they're pursuing both the Premier League and Champions League titles' this season!

Chelsea's loss tonight means defeat number 6 for returning manager - now caretaker - Frank Lampard, as his team struggle for results and slip further down the table. Being Chelsea's 4th manager of the season, proceeding Thomas Tuchel, Graham Potter and Bruno Saltor, Lampard has had a mountain to climb with players that seem lost under the management - begging the question: "Is Frank Lampard Premier League ready?" According to sources, Todd Boehly seems to be interested in appointing former Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino in charge, in order to turn the clubs' fortunes around.
