Chelsea ensured they claimed an automatic place in next season's Champions League with a comfortable 4-1 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

The Blues shook off their Champions League disappointment with first-half goals from Brazilian defender Alex and former Gunner Nicolas Anelka. An own goal from Kolo Toure put them three ahead straight after the re-start.

Arsenal squandered a host of chances throughout the game but finally reduced the arrears with a header from substitute Niklas Bendtner in the 70th minute before Florent Malouda scored Chelsea's fourth three minutes from time.
