Leandro Trossard also found the back of the net in Arsenal's record-breaking win over Chelsea, which left the Gunners three points ahead of Liverpool and four ahead of Manchester City.
Although Manchester City still control their destiny with two games remaining, Arsenal's superior goal difference could prove decisive if that happens. Liverpool, who have played one match less than Arsenal, take on Everton in the Merseyside derby on Wednesday.
“We have made our guys very proud, it is a big derby for us and I know what it means,” Arteta said.
The Arsenal manager acknowledged his team's strong start, but also noted their failure to capitalize on all their opportunities and some sloppiness in some areas. However, he praised their second-half performance, citing improved discipline and ruthless finishing.
Chelsea suffered a major blow even before the match started, as their key player Cole Palmer was ruled out due to illness. Palmer has been involved in almost half of Chelsea's Premier League goals this season, and his absence was deeply felt by the visitors.
Despite going unbeaten in eight league games before an FA Cup semi-final defeat to Manchester City, Chelsea suffered defeat to an Arsenal team keen to reestablish their title credentials following a home defeat to Aston Villa.
Mauricio Pochettino expressed his disappointment with the result and his team's performance, saying, “Today we did not compete against a team fighting for the Premier League. We need to be aware that we need to compete in a different way. “
Arsenal started the match with incredible intensity and took the lead within five minutes through Trossard, who has proven to be a more effective signing than Chelsea's January acquisition of Mykhailo Mudric. Chelsea goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic made several impressive saves to keep his team in the game before halftime, but Arsenal's relentless pressure ultimately paid off.
White's curling effort from a corner doubled Arsenal's lead early in the second half, and Havertz, who has found consistent form under Arteta, scored twice to put the game out of reach. White's attempted cross, which flew into the top corner, capped a night to forget for Chelsea, who finished ninth, three points adrift of the European qualification places.
Arsenal's next challenge is a tough tie away from home tottenham In the North London derby on Sunday. If Arteta's men can secure a win against their arch-rivals, Manchester City will need to win all six of their remaining games to retain the Premier League title.
