Chelsea won at home this morning for only the second time in eight English Premier League football matches, holding off their London rivals Arsenal 2-1 at a snowy Stamford Bridge.

Juan Mata gave Chelsea a sixth minute lead before Frank Lampard made it 2-0 from the penalty spot 10 minutes later, and Theo Walcott scored Arsenal's goal in the 58th minute.

Chelsea remain in third place, and Arsenal stay sixth.

Manchester United, out to restore their 7-point lead, are 1-nil up over Tottenham at halftime.
