Bermain menghadapi tim promosi Southampton, juara Liga Champions musim lalu itu berhasil diburu oleh lawannya hingga laga berakhir. Babak Pertama Tuan rumah Chelsea mampu unggul 2-0 di babak pertama melalui sumbangan Demba Ba dan juga Hazard. Adapun, The Blues baru bisa mengancam pada menit ke-14. Bermula dari pergerakan Cesar Azpilicueta di sisi kanan, upaya dari fullback asal Spanyol itu tak juga menemui sasaran. Setelah berbagai upaya, gol yang dinanti Chelsea akhirnya tiba di menit ke-25 melalui striker anyar mereka Demba Ba. Memanfaatkan umpan manis Azpilicueta yang tampil mobile di babak pertama, sontekan Ba mampu membuat publik Stamford Bridge bersorak, 1-0. Southampton bukannya tanpa peluang. Jelang delapan menit bubaran babak pertama, mereka baru bisa mengancam melalui Steven Davis.

Menggunakan kaki kiri, gelandang asal Belgia itu sukses mencetak gol keenamnya di ajang Liga Primer, Babak Kedua Permainan menjadi lebih terbuka di babak kedua, terutama setelah Southampton memperkecil kedudukan.

EPL Match of the Week: ARSENAL vs. Chelsea
This week we've got a real gem to look forward to as Chelsea face Arsenal at the Emirates in the EPL. Here's how it all looks to me: Arsenal This could be the return to action for winger Alexis Sanchez, who has been out with injury since November. Arsenal have been playing great football even without him, but when he's healthy he can be easily one of the best players in the league. He can be a huge boost for an Arsenal team attempting to mount a major title challenge and fight off tough competition from Leicester City, Man City and Spurs. Their defense has been really solid with the emerging Hector Bellerin, while the midfield has the strings pulled by Mesut Ozil, who continues to prove that he is one of the best in the whole world. He leads the league in assists and is a real joy to watch. Chelsea We all know about Chelsea's struggles this season. They have been better since Guus Hiddink took over as manager, but still sit in 14th place. For me, a large part of their struggles comes down to the horrible form of Eden Hazard, who has completely failed to live up to the expectations he set for himself during last seasons' PFA Player of the Year winning campaign. He needs to be better, and if he is, Chelsea can mount a challenge toward the upper end of the table. Champions League football is out of the question, but they can still challenge for Europe and it may well start with a big match against Arsenal this weekend. My pick Chelsea have been looking better, but Arsenal are the best team in the league getting their best player back from injury. For me, that settles it. Arsenal 2, Chelsea 1.

Arsenal Upsets Bayern Munich!
Arsenal managed to keep their hopes up in the UEFA Champions League as they collected their first win of the Champions League against Bayern Munich. They were on the verge of elimination after losing the first two matches against Olympiakos and Dinamo Zagreb. It was surely an upset considering the fact that Munich was a favorite to win the whole thing. But here's the thing. Today's match was more like a match between Arsenal's Petr Cech against Munich's Manuel Neuer. Just take a moment to appreciate the stellar performance that these two goalies put on tonight. Here are couple of saves by Neuer. And here are some by Cech. It was impossible to get behind these two until this happened. In the 77th minute of the game, just three minutes after Olivier Giroud replaced Theo Walcott, Giroud scored the first goal of the game. Neuer, who was having a perfect night, lost sight of the ball in the air and let this one get by him. Yes, the greatest goalkeeper in the world do make mistakes. Then this happened in the 94th minute to seal the win for Arsenal. It seemed like Neuer saved this one, but take a closer look. The ball had definitely passed the goal line! A goal from Mesut Ozil to make the match 2-0 and brings home the victory at Emirates Stadium. Cech definitely was the game changer and MVP for Arsenal, but I feel like Wenger really should be given credit for last night's win. He was well prepared and his strategy seemed to be effective against one the best teams in the world! What do my football (soccer) fans think of Arsenal's victory?
