Arsenal, Chelsea Play Goalless, Blues Eye Title



Captain John Terry celebrated passionately as Chelsea edged closer to the Premier League title after battling to a 0-0 draw at Arsenal.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho extended his unbeaten run against Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger to 13 matches, and the Blues can wrap up the title in the week ahead with victories at Leicester and Crystal Palace.
Ten points separate the leaders from the third-placed Gunners, who are level with Manchester City in second but have a game in hand on last season’s champions.
Arsenal had plenty of possession at the Emirates Stadium but could not find a way past Chelsea’s solid rearguard, the attacking display from the home side failing to really test goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
Indeed, Chelsea could feel somewhat aggrieved not to have left with all three points after Oscar’s first-half effort was cleared off the line and Ramires failed to make the most of an opportunity.
Arsenal still have second place in their own hands, but will have to wait until the visit to Hull on Bank Holiday Monday to exert pressure on City and Manchester United in the battle to secure automatic Champions League qualification.
