Arsenal Snatch a Point in a Thrilling 2-2 Draw With Chelsea

Arsenal delivered an impressive late comeback to hold Chelsea to a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.


Mikel Arteta secured his first Premier League win over Pep Guardiola ahead of the international break as Gabriel Martinelli’s late winner sealed a 1-0 victory over defending champions Manchester City.

They came into this game with real momentum, although the pressure was on to replicate that performance against City given the champions and Liverpool had both won earlier.

The Gunners certainly didn’t look like they were going to respond to those victories for their title rivals.

They fell behind early after Vile Palmers penalty goal which was awarded for a handball against William Saliba after a VAR review, gave Chelsea a 15th-minute lead.

On the other hand, David Raya was at fault for Chelsea’s second goal, as he allowed Mudryk’s left-sided cross to sail over his head and into the net merely three minutes into the second half.

Raya’s mistake appeared to unsettle him, nearly gifting Palmer another opportunity when he passed the ball directly to him, though the forward failed to capitalize on it.

At that moment, the Arsenal players were struggling to find their confidence.

However, their chance for a comeback was handed to them by Robert Sanchez, Chelsea’s goalkeeper, whose clearance was intercepted by Declan Rice, resulting in a long-range goal.

The incredible comeback was sealed when Bukayo Saka and Leandro Trossard orchestrated a brilliant play, with the English winger providing a cross for the Belgian to calmly slot the ball into the net at the back post.
