Neville, Lineker and more: Twitter reacts as Chelsea beat Arsenal

Gary Neville and Gary Lineker both tweet their thoughts as Chelsea beat nine-man Arsenal 2-0 at Stamford Bridge

Arsenal had Gabriel Paulista and Santi Cazorla sent off as Chelsea secured a 2-0 win over their London rivals in the Premier League on Saturday lunchtime.

Kurt Zouma headed in the opener in the 53rd minute from a Cesc Fabregas free-kick before Eden Hazard fired home with a shot that went in off Calum Chambers in stoppage time.

Gabriel was sent off in the first half for flicking his heel at Diego Costa, who was lucky not to see red himself for a swipe at Laurent Koscielny.

Arsenal captain Cazorla was then shown a second yellow for a late tackle on Fabregas late on at Stamford Bridge.
