Improved Arsenal hold Chelsea to goalless draw

Improved Arsenal hold Chelsea to goalless draw

This is the first time Fabregas has started three Premier League games in-a-row since Antonio Conte took charge of Chelsea.

One suggested the club could have used something such as Eden Hazard's incredible solo goal last season, whilst others vented with some very colourful language indeed. We tried to play when we had the ball and we were close to winning the game.

Tempers frayed near the end with Chelsea's David Luiz shown a red card for a wild tackle on Sead Kolasinac - their third red card of the season from only five league games. "We lost Pedro against Arsenal in China as well".

It has set up a tantalising clash, in which both sides will be going for three points - Chelsea will be hoping to keep pace at the top, whilst Arsenal need a win to climb into the top half. "We showed we wanted a result here today and we've got one".

Such as when Ramsey was given the freedom to exploit pockets of space and waltz unchallenged through the defense just before halftime.

Although the Gunners lacked time to make the most of its man advantage, they still made Chelsea settle for a goalless draw in the league for the first time since February 2016.

Chelsea had earlier missed a one-on-one opportunity from Pedro, who was foiled by Petr Cech.

The chances dried up after the break prompting Arsenal to introduce Alexis Sanchez after he was left on the bench while Chelsea threw on Eden Hazard for Willian.

Thibaut Courtois had to be far more alert in the Chelsea goal, particularly in the first half when Hector Bellerin's pace was unsettling the hosts on the right flank as he combined with Danny Welbeck. We try to play with an identity and if you want to give an identity to your team, every single player needs to know very well your idea of football. "They defended well, we couldn't open them up".
