Comments:

League position: 3rd Chelsea had now conceded four or more goals in consecutive home league games for the first time since December 1989 in League Division One. The Blues had now lost three consecutive home games in all competitions for the first time since November 1993. Aged 37 years and 210 days, Thiago Silva became the oldest outfield player to appear for Chelsea in the Premier League: previously Graham Rix against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on 14 May 1997 (37 years and 202 days).

Comments:

League position: 5th This was Arsenal's 250th away win in the Premier League: only Manchester United (301) and Chelsea (263) had now won more. The Gunners avoided losing four consecutive league games for the first time since March 1995. They had now won six of their last eight away games in the Premier League (lost two).
