Chelsea manager Graham Potter heaped praise on Arsenal following their 1-0 Premier League win at Stamford Bridge earlier today.
The Gunners were the dominant side from the off in the London derby but they failed to capitalise on their scoring chances in the first half.
However, they kept on going after the interval and eventually found the opening goal in fortuitous fashion through Gabriel Magalhaes.
After taking the lead, the north London giants never looked like conceding with William Saliba being excellent at the heart of the defence.
Speaking after the game, Potter had no doubts over the Gunners’ quality and admitted that the better team won at Stamford Bridge today.
He said: “There are two teams on the pitch and Arsenal defend well and press well. That’s what the top teams do and Arsenal at the moment are a top team. I don’t like to say that but it’s the reality.”
With the win, Arsenal are back at the top of the Premier League while Chelsea remain in seventh, 13 points adrift of the Gunners.
