The mood was not as bright as the day. The two teams that faced champions league exit in the semifinals, Chelsea and Arsenal were pitted against each other.

Both teams started the half brilliantly but it was Chelsea that had the first breakthrough. A foul by Francesc Fabregas on Drogba led to a Drogba free kick that was guided home by Alex from the centre of penalty area.

The second goal came some 10 minutes later. Mikel made a good pass to Anelka who slotted the ball into the bottom corner of the net. The halftime ended with Chelsea up by two but the goals did not stop there.

The second half began and this time it was Arsenal in the form of Kolo Toure who found the back of the net. Sadly though, it was an own goal from him and that mean that Chelsea were now three up.

Arsenal did get a score on the board thanks to the effort of substitute Nicholas Bendtner who headed an easy one past Peter Cech. The last goal of the game was scored by Malouda.

Malouda shot the ball from the center of the penalty only to have Fabiansky punch it away to Anelka—whose shot on goal bounced off the post and towards Malouda and the Frenchman did not make the same mistake again.

Final score - Arsenal One : Chelsea Four.
