A ball over the top from David Luiz found N'Golo Kante who took it on his chest before firing past Vicente Guaita.
A smart flick from Eden Hazard found Willian but he was denied by Guaita who reacted well to save his low shot.
Olivier Giroud had a goal ruled out for offside for the second time in the match and then had to be substituted after injuring his ankle.
A second successive away win means Chelsea remain fourth on 43 points, five clear of Arsenal.
