English Premier League match report Chelsea v Arsenal 17 September 2017

He was given more minutes to test the water against Arsenal, and with matches coming thick and fast, Conte is now eager to give him his first full game against the Championship side.

It has set up a tantalising clash, in which both sides will be going for three points - Chelsea will be hoping to keep pace at the top, whilst Arsenal need a win to climb into the top half.

"It's a deserved point". With a bit more freedom we could have won this game with one or two goals' difference. Coming on top of the FA Cup final win over Chelsea in May and Community Shield success, Arsenal has the upper-hand in this London rivalry at the moment. It's different in the championship.

Hazard, who missed Chelsea's entire pre-season with an ankle injury, has been among Conte's substitutes for the Blues' last three matches and the Belgian impressed after replacing Willian in the side's 0-0 draw against Arsenal.

"When you deliver the kind of performance we had at Liverpool, you have to accept the criticism. I think it's not an advantage". Today was a question: what would happen?

"We were focused and determined".

Arsenal lost 1-0 to Stoke City in their other away match in 2017-18, but Wenger does not believe their performance at the bet365 Stadium suggested they needed drastic changes. We are all human beings. "That's what we saw".

Speaking afterwards Wenger said: "It was a game of quality and intensity all over the pitch and we battled well".

The Brazilian was given a red card by Michael Oliver for a rash challenge on Sead Kolasinac in the 87th minute of what was an otherwise tiresome game, but Conte felt that Sanchez had fouled him in the build-up to the tackle. I think it was a good game but tough for both teams.

Aaron Ramsey went even closer before half-time, hitting the post after a mazy dribble that confounded Cesar Azpilicueta and Luiz.

Ahead of a game against very familiar opposition to him, Antonio Conte explained the decision-making process he will undertake when he comes to select his starting XI. "It looked to me like excessive force".
