Ranieri concedes defeat
Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri
Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri admitted defeat in the race for the Premiership title after Arsenal's victory.

"There are 10 or 11 matches left but I think nine points is too much to make up," he said.

"But we do want to fight to close the gap because it's important to continue to build.

"Well done Arsenal. Both teams played well and created chances. Arsenal scored with their chances, and Chelsea did not."
