On 23 March 2008, Chelsea managed to beat Arsenal, which no other team had managed in the League since Middlesbrough on 9 December 2007.
Arsenal had bounced back from their defeat to Boro in December immediately with a 1-0 win over Chelsea at the Emirates. Unfortunately, however, they couldn’t replicate this result three months later at the Bridge.
Despite Bacary Sagna scoring in the 59th minute, putting the Gunners 1-0 ahead, a late brace from Didier Drogba (who else?) not only cancelled out Arsenal’s effort but won Chelsea the game.
The only other team Arsenal would lose to between March and the end of the season was Manchester United at Old Trafford (2-1).
Despite being level at the top of the table in January, the Gunners finished third in the Premier League that season just two points behind Chelsea, which highlights how crucial three points can be come the end of the season.
United won the title, just two points ahead of Chelsea.
