Arsenal Fights Back To Secure A Point Against Chelsea At Stamford Bridge

Arsenal secured a point at Stamford Bridge after coming from two goals down to level points with goals from Declan Rice and Trossard

Mikel Arteta was taking charge of his 143rd Premier League game as Arsenal boss, and his side had nothing to offer in the first half. 

Arsenal was down by one goal after Cole Palmer calmly converted from the penalty spot, when Sterling’s cross hit William Saliba’s hand in the box. 

It was the first away goal Arsenal had conceded this season, ending a run of 335 minutes in away games without letting the opposition score. 

David Raya has faced seven penalties as Arsenal’s goalkeeper and he has not saved any one of them. 

Only four goalkeepers in Premier League history have faced more spot-kicks without saving one. 

Just 141 seconds into the second half, Mykhailo Mudryk attempted a cross that found its way high and into the far end of the net for Chelsea’s second goal. 

Raya was off his line and almost cost Arsenal another goal after passing the ball straight to Palmer in the box. 

Another goalkeeping error, this time from Chelsea’s Robert Sánchez allowed Declan Rice to get his team back into the game. He sent the ball straight into the back of the net. 

Seven minutes later, a fantastic cross from Bukayo Saka met Leandro Trossard who eased the ball into the net with the outside of his right foot. 

Trossard became the first Arsenal player to score each of his first three Premier League goals for the club as a substitute.

Arsenal continues their unbeaten start to the Premier League which currently stands at nine games.
