Chelsea held by Arsenal in Premier League in rare 0-0 draw

Chelsea held by Arsenal in Premier League in rare 0-0 draw

Conte also refused to get drawn into whether he thought David Luiz deserved to be sent off for a late tackle on Sead Kolasinac.

Opta Stats Arsenal have lost their last five away Premier League games versus Chelsea, their joint-longest away losing run in the competition against a single opponent.

Asked about Chelsea's fifth red card in eight matches, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte responded: "Do you think we are becoming bad?"

Wenger's side were savaged by former players and pundits after the 4-0 loss at Liverpool last month but showed far greater steel on Sunday and a point was the least they deserved. We are not in a transfer period and on the day we played Liverpool that affected us.

Following today's result, the reigning Champions now have 10 points after five games, the same total we had at this stage a year ago.

Arsenal still title contenders despite mixed form, says Antonio Conte
Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette is "good" but Chelsea landed a "top drawer" signing in Alvaro Morata, says Paul Merson. Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater is expected to be out until the October worldwide break.

After a sharp opening fifteen minutes from the hosts, Arsenal recovered to arguably have the better of the first 45 overall, culminating in Aaron Ramsey stumbling through the Chelsea defence before poking the ball onto the post.

However, Arsenal's chief creative force missed training on Saturday and is now set to sit out the huge clash at Stamford Bridge with what has been described as a "muscle" injury.

'We have great respect for officials, but it is unusual to finish a third game in a row against Arsenal with 10 men'. Collecting a couple of strikes from Pedro Rodriguez in the first half and a shot from Eden Hazard in the second half was about as testing as it got for Cech.

The Chelsea captain added: "It is frustrating, a good, competitive London derby".
