Arsenal’s Premier League title charge is back on track after a 5-0 dismantling of Chelsea at the Emirates.

A 2-0 away win at Wolves on Saturday had taken them back to the top and they moved clear in midweek - albeit having played one more game than Liverpool and two more than Manchester City.

After a disastrous week with losses to Aston Villa and Bayern Munich, there was a sinking feeling that the season might just be falling away.

But the Gunners bounced back with defiance through two convincing displays.

The win over Wolves saw Arsenal back to their defensive best, restricting the hosts to few chances and fighting for every duel to keep the clean sheet.

Leandro Trossard and Martin Odegaard scored late in each half at Molineux, with Trossard netting early on Tuesday. 

And despite some shaky moments in the first half against Chelsea, the Gunners came out firing with a dazzling second-half display.

It was the sign of a team that has learned a lesson or two from last season’s drop-off in April, hanging in the race and giving themselves a chance with just four league games to go.

Kai Havertz was one of the stars of the show against Chelsea, being restored to the striker position and netting a brace against his former club in an impressive performance.

For all of the talk midway through the season, Arsenal will struggle to find a centre forward who contributes to their success as much as Havertz, even if he doesn’t always look confident in front of goal.

Yet despite Havertz’s two goals, it was Martin Odegaard and Ben White - scorer of an unlikely brace - who got the most plaudits, and deservingly so, with Declan Rice and the defence also having good games.

Having a variety of different players chip in with great games regularly has been a feature of Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal over the past few years and one that makes them so dangerous from game to game.

The wins have restored the good feeling around the Arsenal camp, especially beating London rivals Chelsea so convincingly, and should give Arsenal a good boost going into their remaining games. Four games left and sat top of the pile.

The Gunners go to fierce rivals Tottenham for the North London derby on Sunday (4.30pm).

It’s a game where form goes out the window and having dropped points in the home game earlier this season, it’s time for Arsenal to make amends as well as keep the pressure on City.
