LONDON: Chelsea slipped up in their push for a Champions League spot when they lost 1-0 at home to Arsenal in the Premier League on Wednesday with Emile Smith Rowe's first-half goal settling the London derby after a defensive mix-up by the hosts.

The visitors capitalised on a wayward back pass by Chelsea's Jorginho to goalkeeper KepaArrizabalaga who scrambled back to palm it off the line. The ball fell to Pierre-EmerickAubameyang who cut it back for Smith Rowe to score in the 16th minute.

Chelsea, who play Leicester City in the FA Cup final on Saturday and Manchester City in the Champions League final on May 29, dominated possession but largely failed to break down Arsenal's defensive lines. Agencies
