Arsenal and Chelsea played out a potential game of the season contender at the Emirates on Wednesday, January 3, in a pulsating contest that ended 2-2
Arsene Wenger's men equalized right at the dead to salvage one point in a fiesty London derby on a wet Wednesday night.
Arsenal started the game brightly and should have taken the lead in the first half but brilliant display in goal from the Blues goalkeeper kept the game at 0-0.
Chelsea had chances of their own but they were also guilty of being wasteful infront of goal especially from their record signing Alvaro Morata
We were witnessing a display from two number 9s Lacazette and Morata who were proving to be short of confidence as they were both guilty of missing gilt edge chances.
Arsenal took the lead through Englishman Jack Wilshere in the 63rd minute but the lead only lasted few minutes as a controversial moment gave Chelsea a penalty.
Belgium Eden Hazard coolly dispatched the penalty he won to make it 1-1 as it was all Chelsea after their equalizer. In the 84th minute they took the lead through in-form Spanish defender Marcos Alonso.
