Kevin Pietersen and Matt Lucas would make good company for a football match.

The former England cricketer is an avid Chelsea fan, while comedian Lucas has made no secret of his love for Arsenal.

So naturally the pair got together to watch the London derby at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

And Pietersen emerged the winner as Chelsea eased to a 2-0 victory, while the South African born cricketer also cheekily labelled Lucas a Blues fan.

Diego Costa was a key talking point from the 2-0 win after he clashed with Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel Paulista, resulting in the latter’s sending off.

Chelsea centre-half Kurt Zouma broke the deadlock with a towering header before Santi Cazorla received his marching orders for second booking.
