Chelsea remain just two points adrift of Liverpool after beating 10 man Swansea last Sunday. Chelsea failed to capitalise on their numerical advantage until Ba found the back of the net with just over 20 minutes left on the clock.

As we know, we went on to win the game 6-0, and though the Gunners were down to 10, we were thoroughly impressive. I thought that I would take a look at the stats via our friends Squawka.
