Costa dents Gunners after Mertesacker sees red

Arsenal slip their chance to reclaim the top position in the standings
Chelsea's another double over Arsenal as they defeated Gunners in the the highly anticipated London derby .The first 25 minutes were held the key -Mertasacker getting straight red , cathcing Costa , and just after 4 minutes Costa scoring. Arsenal pulled up in the second half but it was always going to be a humongous task to get something out of the match with Chelsea having the numeric advantage.Even the second-half introduction of Alexis Sanchez - featuring for the first time since suffering a hamstring injury in November - could not spark Arsenal, who lost at home in the league for the first time since the opening weekend of the season.A frantic scramble in the Chelsea box raised Arsenal hopes of an equaliser, but the hosts could not force the ball in as Hiddink's side stood firm to claim back-to-back away wins and move above West Brom into 13th place
