Arsenal produced one of their quintessential late comebacks to hold London rivals Chelsea to a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League.

Cole Palmer’s penalty and Mykhaylo Mudryk’s freak finish would seemingly propel the Blues to a deserved victory against their toothless opponents, but late efforts from Declan Rice and Leandro Trossard ensured that Arsenal would travel home with their unbeaten top-flight record – somehow – still intact.

The Gunners were looking confident going into the game after defeating league winners Man City last time out.

For so long, Arsenal have looked formidable away from the Emirates Stadium. They had won each of their last three Premier League games away from home.

Their defensive record away from North London was equally as impressive. They had not conceded a goal in 355 Premier League minutes until this clah.

However, they could only salvage a 2-2 draw against the Blues and continue their Premier League unbeaten run.

Some terrible goalkeeping, sublime finishing characterised this game that leaves Arsenal second in the Premier League and the Blues in ninth.

Cole Palmers and Mudryk gave Chelsea the lead but Arsenal did not back down and scored two goals from Declan Rice and Leandro Trossard.

Arteta’s side now gear up for a Champions League trip to Sevilla on Tuesday, while the Blues have a week to recover before a West London derby with Brentford next Saturday.

Heads up!
