Two late goals from Jorginho and Tammy Abraham inspired Chelsea to a dramatic comeback in Sunday's Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium.

The Blues ran off with a 2-1 victory over Arsenal having trailed for the most part of the match before the Brazilian-Italian midfielder leveled up for the visitors.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had earlier opened the scoring for Arsenal with his 13th of the season but it was not enough to save the Gunners from an embarrassing defeat.

However, that did not stop Arteta's wards from pushing for a second goal, with their pressure up front forcing Frank Lampard to an early tactical change.

The second half of the clash saw Chelsea nearly draw level in the 48th minute, but N'Golo Kante fluffed the chance.

The Blues had to wait until the 83rd minute to restore parity through Jorginho who tapped home from Mason Mount's free-kick.

Tammy Abraham went on to bag the winner just three minutes to time to complete a stunning comeback for the Blues.

The victory was enough to cement Chelsea place in the top four and now remain fourth with 35 points, four above fifth-placed Man United.
