Chelsea 0 Arsenal 0: David Luiz sent off as champions are held

Chelsea 0 Arsenal 0: David Luiz sent off as champions are held”

It was the third sending-off for a Chelsea player in their last three meetings with Arsenal.

Wenger waited until the final 25 minutes before turning to Sanchez in the hope of his talisman inspiring Arsenal to a late victor. We could have won it.

'The battle was total.

"We were focused and determined".

Asked to pinpoint what was different about the performances at Liverpool and Chelsea, Ramsey added on Sky Sports: " We played higher up (today), so if we lost the ball we were able to get back into position a lot quicker - at Liverpool that gap was probably too big".

The Chile worldwide has had a slow start to the season after injury and an extended holiday but he played the entire game for the Gunners in their 3-1 Europa League win over Cologne on Thursday.

Arsene Wenger, meanwhile, was pleased with his team's response to the 4-0 hammering they suffered against Liverpool two weeks ago.

"We feel we're in a good place and now need to keep building on this".

Pedro wasted Chelsea's best chance in the first half when he was sent clear by Cesc Fabregas but finished tamely.

The result? Welbeck had a header go wide, Lacazette saw his effort on goal blocked while Ramsey danced through the entire defence only to see his shot hit the post.

While Eden Hazard only being named on the Chelsea bench was largely expected, Wenger dropping Alexis Sanchez to the role of substitute was not.

A disappointing Chelsea display ended on a sour note when Luiz followed through recklessly on Kolasinac and referee Michael Oliver reached for his red card.

The flow of red cards represents a contrast with the discipline that was a key part of Conte's title-winning side past year following a chaotic 2015-16 campaign, when Jose Mourinho was sacked amid rumours of a rebellion against him by several top players. "I was a player and it can happen, this type of period and you are not so lucky to receive these red cards".
