Chelsea have big win over Arsenal

7:36 am on 11 May 2009

Chelsea have bounced back from their Champions League semi final loss to beat Arsenal 4-1 in the English Premier League football championship.

Manager Guus Hiddink says he is proud of the way his team had played to secure the away win.

The win guarantees Chelsea of third place in the premiership and is their best away league win over the north London side since 1970.

Hiddink's opposite number Arsene Wenger bemoaned seven or eight clear cut chances which his side missed and said Chelsea punished them for every mistake they made. He also felt Didier Drogba dived to win a free kick that led to Chelsea's opening goal.

Defeat means Arsenal will now face a non-seeded qualifier to get into next season's Champions League.
