Result: Chelsea defeat nine-man Arsenal

Arsenal end the game with nine men as Chelsea defeat them 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Kurt Zouma grabbed his first goal for Chelsea as they defeated rivals Arsenal, who ended the game with nine men, 2-0 at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

The first half was an on-and-off affair, with Theo Walcott coming close to opening the scoring for Arsenal but the striker was well pressured by Asmir Begovic.

Pedro and Diego Costa troubled Petr Cech on his return to Stamford Bridge, before Gabriel was shown a red card for an off-the-ball incident that saw him walk over to Costa and lash out at him with his foot.

Zouma then gave Chelsea the lead after the break, heading in a deep Cesc Fabregas free kick at the back post.

Oscar continued with his impressive display for Chelsea with a couple of dipping shots, as Costa also came close to doubling Chelsea's lead.

Santi Cazorla received a second yellow card for a late tackle on Fabregas to take Arsenal down to nine men, and Eden Hazard took full advantage with a shot that took a wicked deflection off substitute Calum Chambers to settle in the net behind Cech.

Aaron Ramsey had a chance to grab a goal back at the end but the onrushing Begovic did well to stop the Gunners gaining a consolation.

It is a much-needed victory for Mourinho's men who move up to 10th place in the Premier League while Arsenal remain in fourth.

Sunday's key events


GOLF
· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

CYCLING - BMX
· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

SWIMMING
· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

BOXING
· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

TENNIS
· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

SAILING
· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS
· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

ATHLETICS
· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

HOCKEY
· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
