van Persie nets treble as Arsenal win at the Bridge: Chelsea 3-5 Arsenal

Arsenal captain Robin van Persie scored a hat-trick as Arsenal beat Chelsea 5-3 in a stunning London Derby at Stamford Bridge.

André Villas-Boas’ side opened the scoring through a Lampard header before van Persie levelled for the visitors. Under-fire John Terry restored the home sides advantage just before the break to make it 2-1 to Chelsea at half time.

The Gunners came flying out the blocks in the second half and scored 2 goals in quick succession through Andre Santos and Theo Walcott, both burying their shots past ‘keeper Petr Cech.

Juan Mata then smashed home from 25 yards to draw Chelsea level but a late Van Persie double not only sealed his hat-trick but all three points for Arsenal as they ran out winners in a thrilling London Derby.

Arsenal XI: Szczesny (GK), Djourou (Jenkinson 75), Mertesacker, Koscielny, Santos, Song, Ramsey, Arteta, Walcott (Rosicky 85), van Persie (c), Gervinho (Vermaelen 88).

Subs not used: Fabianski, Arshavin, Frimpong, Park.

    Unbelievable win. I’d just like to take the time to wish all those that asked for Wenger to be sacked a few weeks ago to put that in your pipe and smoke it.

    What a wonderful performance

  5. Aminu says:

    Van Persie will stay and lead Arsenal to win trophies by the grace of God because he is a leader,just like Tony Adams and Viera when they were captain,he shall end his career with Asenal as a legend just like Bergkamp.

    Now for those who keep sagging Walkout off, what an answer.He may be inconsistent, but no one would have lived with him today. But for Rvp’s hattrick,Theo was my Mom. And oh buying big does not guarantee anything or does it? two chav players were worth more than our entire team and one of them did not get a single kick,pmsl. Now goons get behind the team and forget all the negativity it doesn’t help us but our rivals.Now watch teams coming to defend against Arsenal after this result.
