Preview: Chelsea V Arsenal

Without Alexis Sanchez in the starting lineup and Mesut Ozil not named in the matchday squad altogether, Arsene Wenger named a very mobile attacking lineup that would do its job off the ball too.

Arsenal's 0-0 draw against Chelsea means they are the first team to stop the Premier League champions from scoring in a competitive home game in Antonio Conte's reign as manager.

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.

Speaking during Sky Sports' coverage of the game, Smith said: "He's going to pick up the [man of the match] award".

It was the most explosive moment of a largely sedate lunchtime fixture with Arsenal transformed from the side that collapsed so meekly to lose 4-0 at Liverpool on top of a defeat to Stoke.

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. "The battle was total". "You need to see what happened before the tackle".

As Chelsea looked to restore control of the game in the second period, Conte called on Tiemoue Bakayoko who replaced Pedro at half time.

"I think we needed that, after Liverpool", Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey said.

"We have great respect for officials, but it is odd to finish a third game in a row against Arsenal with 10 men", Conte said.

Mustafi thought he had won it for Arsenal when he met a free kick with a downward header but he was adjudged off-side.
