Chelsea struggled in the last 20′ against Arsenal in a tough and vivid first half at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues controlled the game in the opening minutes and went close to scoring with Pedro at 23′, but Arsenal goalkeeper Cech made a strong save. On the other side, Aaron Ramsey seemed unstoppable as the Wales international danced past Azpilicueta and Luiz before hitting the post. Lacazette was ready to exploit the rebound, but his shot went wide.
David Luiz suffered a minor injury on his left hand following a late challenge just before the halftime whistle and came back with a bandage. Pedro out, Bakayoko in at halftime.
Alvaro Morata was booked while Wenger made his first change with Alexis Sanchez on for Lacazette, then also Eden Hazard came in to replace willian with 25 minutes left to go.
Skhodran Mustafi‘s opener with a header at 75′ was disallowed by the referee. Then Elneny replaces injured Welbeck.
David Luiz sent off following a late challenge on Kolasinac. As a result, Conte replaces Alvaro Morata with Andreas Christensen, who takes place in the centre of defense. Chelsea are pushing to find a late goal even though they are playing without Morata. Also Kolasinac is booked due to a foul on Eden Hazard.
4’ of extra time, with Chelsea trying to grab a late win. Arsenal struggling to create chances despite the one-man edge. The referee blows and the game is over: clean sheet at Stamford Bridge, firstborn draw of the season for Antonio Conte’s men.
