Wenger criticizes referee Taylor over Hazard penalty

Wenger criticizes referee Taylor over Hazard penalty

It could have been one of the great Arsenal performances of recent times, a long overdue combination of their best players, a rare big night when they all play with the handbrake off, as Arsene Wenger likes to put it. Like with Liverpool, Chelsea were fantastic on the counter-attack, and it was another messy evening for that backline.

He got up took the spot kick and smashed the ball home, sending Cech the wrong way in the process.

43 - Jack Wilshere scored his first goal in his last 43 Premier League games, since netting v West Brom in May 2015. It seemed Arsenal were set to dominate the game, but then the unthinkable happened. His comeback has been nothing short of sensational, and Arsenal are always a better team with him in it.

If that was a stroke of luck for Chelsea, there was no fortune about Courtois's next contribution as he produced a fine save to deny Alexandre Lacazette after the Arsenal forward turned Gary Cahill and unleashed a powerful low strike. And when Wilshere gave the Gunners the lead, fans couldn't sit comfortably, purely because they knew that Chelsea would be gifted a golden chance very soon.

Arguably the worst player for Arsenal on the pitch.

Conte backed Alvaro Morata after the striker missed two glorious chances, while the Blues were indebted to a Thibaut Courtois save which pushed Alexis Sanchez's shot on to both posts. Lacazette was good off the ball, making runs and closing the opposition down as well but he was eventually replaced by Danny Welbeck. Conte tried to freshen up the attacking end with the entrance of Willian instead of Hazard, who looked extremely exhausted following his effort in the second half.

Chelsea had a chance of their own on 11 minutes through Eden Hazard whose left-foot strike inside the box was blocked away for a corner by Shkodran Mustafi. Even that they almost lost in the final seconds when Davide Zappacosta thumped the ball against the cross-bar.

With the final whistle close, Bellerin grabbed a goal that earn3dearned the Gooners a point.

In the ongoing season of English Premier League, it was the second time that Arsenal and Chelsea played against each other but in both times, no one can beat their opponent. Chelsea remained in third place with 46 points, 16 behind leaders Manchester City, and Arsenal stayed sixth.

Alonso wasted a free-kick from just outside the box that he curled over in the 38th minute, and the action quickly switched to the opposite end as Ozil flashed a shot narrowly past the right post from 20 yards out on the left.

For context, Chelsea had an opportunity to grab a late victor late as Davide Zappacosta hit the bar in the last few seconds.

There was one more twist in the tale, however, when Zappacosta crashed a long-range shot against the bar.
