Alexis Sanchez's Reaction To Arsenal Teammate Miss Has Fans Up In Arms

Each side had their recognised star players on the bench as both Eden Hazard and Alexis Sanchez started as substitutes and were only brought on just after the hour mark. "I tried to have more balance", Conte said.

"For sure, that was a foul", he said.

"When there is a foul continually, they continued to push him, the referee has to use the whistle". In my opinion, for me, he played very well today.

Lacazette and Welbeck missed Arsenal's best chances and Wenger acknowledged his team could have won.

16th min CHANCE: Slick interplay between Ramasey and Bellerin sees the former slip a unsafe ball into the front post and Lacazette times his run perfectly to hit a first-time shot which is comfortably gathered by Courtois. Even Luiz would accept there was a big distance and he went in too strong. The Blues face Nottingham Forest next in the League Cup at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

The Gunners had lost their last five Premier League matches away to the Blues, but this afternoon (Sunday), after weathering the first few minutes of home pressure, they proved to be the Champions' equal.

A draw certainly suited embattled Arsenal more than their opponents, as was evidenced by the outcome of the game. Only the post denied Ramsey and record-signing Alexandre Lacazette couldn't follow through with a goal.

The Spaniard went off with an ankle injury at half-time.

The goal would have broken the deadlock at Stamford Bridge and quite possibly led to Arsenal claiming three points instead of just one.

"Everyone wanted to see how we responded to our last away league game and we did that in a positive way".

Arsene Wenger discusses his team's need to respond better to hard matches, which he says they did today vs. Chelsea. "It was vital for us even above the result to come out with a solid performance on that front", the Frenchman said. There is also a feeling that Wenger got the better of Conte in the tactical battle, though the statistics would suggest that this match was an absolute dead heat and deserved to finish with the points being split.

That's the verdict of former footballer Garth Crooks, who's hailed the Arsenal's defender's reaction to the tackle.

Arsenal: Cech, Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal, Bellerin, Ramsey, Xhaka, Kolasinac, Welbeck (Giroud, 72 mins), Iwobi (Elneny, 79 mins), Lacazette (Sanchez, 65 mins).
