    London's two top First Division clubs, Chelsea and Arsenal, provided a feast of good football when they fought for supremacy at Stamford Bridge, the Chelsea ground, today (Saturday). The home side recorded a moral-boosting 2-1 victory -- scoring the winning goal in the dying minutes of the game.

    Arsenal, playing for a draw, took a defensive stranglehold on the match from the opening minutes. And it needed brilliant scheming in attack to break through.

    Hollins, the Chelsea half-back, provided the required touch of genius. He ran 30 yards, called for a pass from Harris and with Superb control flicked the ball over goalkeeper Wilson. The ball hit the bar, but Hollins raced back to pick up the rebound and crack the ball into the net.

    Thirty-eight minutes had gone and Arsenal were now forced into the attack in an effort to equalise. They succeeded in the 51st minute, with Eddie Kelly heading a brilliant goal from a centre by Nelson.

    Both sides piled everything into attack...and the Arsenal defence was the first to crack. With six minutes left, Chelsea's Paddy Mulligan took a fine pass by Osgood, caught goalkeeper Wilson out of position and chipped the ball into an empty net.
