Arsenal 2 Chelsea 2: Bellerin belter snatches point in derby thriller

13 January 2018

Wenger also admitted that Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere may have dived in a second-half incident that some pundits felt warranted a second yellow card for the midfielder.

Bellerin's late strike atoned for the challenge on Hazard that had allowed the Belgian to equalise, four minutes after Jack Wilshere had given Arsenal the lead.

Marcos Alonso then flicked home a cross from Davide Zappacosta, who came in as a substitute for Moses, only six minutes to time.

"I have been in football for 35 years, I know what I said and I stand up for what I said".

Could we soon see Jack Wilshere kitting up for England again

"It was a game where we have shown great mental resources". Shaka Hislop is optimistic of Arsenal's future without Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez should the two stars leave the Gunners. Plays such intelligent passes and so good when at his best only to turn around and be unable to make a simple 4 yard pass.

Chelsea, by contrast were prepared to be a be a bit more adventurous, especially on the counter-attack, which yielded several corners.

"I've seen it all now".

Chelsea came close to score first, though, when Alvaro Morata tried his luck from inside the box in the 14th minute. Because of the same defensive mistakes that have plagued them all season, and before that.

The Jaguars picked up their fifth-year option in Bortles' rookie contract, at a salary of more than $19 million, for next season. So far this season, the coldest game the Jags have played in was at Nashville playing the Tennessee Titans on December 31.

Hazard's goal gave Chelsea some much-needed life, and they began to push the lines forward. After seeing how his side was overrun by Liverpool here on 22 December, lucky to only concede three, he realised that the expected improvement in creating chances and incisive play with the 4-2-3-1 was not worth it.

A stellar performance alongside Granit Xhaka in the middle of the park, as the Gunners were hardly lacking flair and tenacity. And Chelsea frustrations were compounded in the 63rd minute, when Wilshere latched onto a loose ball in the penalty area and rifled a shot in off the top of the left-hand post for his first league goal since May 2015.

The next step now for Wilshere is surely nailing down that new contract, as it's evident that Arsenal need him big time. His team had to try to lock games down better than they had been. It was another night where the Frenchman will feel a tad disappointed that he didn't get on the scoresheet.

Gary Neville singled out one Arsenal man for praise on Twitter.

Arsene Wenger believes that his team now have to prepare for referee's decisions being skewed against them, and complained that perceived favourable decisions Tottenham Hotspur received on Tuesday night were insufficiently covered by the media.

Next, in an era wherein pundits, critics and former players alike bemoan the lack of leaders in the Arsenal setup, the opportunity is there for the taking to cement himself as the leader Wenger hoped he would become.

The challenge, however, is that Congress did not write the deal and can not now change it. The assumption has been that the deal could, technically, stand if the USA left.
