Luiz sees red as Blues held to a point

"I think we needed that, after Liverpool", Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey said.

Arsenal have now won just two of their first five league games this season.

Quite how Arsenal failed to score with four minutes of the half remaining is an understatement First Aaron Ramsey raced straight through the Chelsea rearguard but saw his shot, rebound off Courtois left post. "They defended well, we couldn't open them up".

When asked what his views were on David Luiz's sending off after showing his studs to Sead Kolasinac late on in front of the dugouts Wenger replied: "I think even Luiz would accept it was too strong".

"We have great respect for officials, but it is odd to finish a third game in a row against Arsenal with 10 men". "It looks like it's a "good" groin problem - not an easy one", said Wenger.

Eden Hazard started on the bench after Conte said in midweek that the Belgian was "very, very close to 100% fitness".

Following today's result, the reigning Champions now have 10 points after five games, the same total we had at this stage past year.

"For sure it's unusual. Sometimes the opponent deserves a red card and instead they continue to play with 11 men". "A odd situation", he told reporters in his post-match press conference.

"In the end, we'll try to pay more attention in the future". "I was a player and it can happen, this type of period and you are not so lucky to receive these red cards".

On his midfield partnership with Granit Xhaka, the Welshman added: "Me and Granit have played a lot of games together and have a good understanding". And while recent history at Wembley - which included FA Cup final and Community Shield victories - gave Arsenal more optimism than usual, playing at Chelsea's hostile home ground is always a daunting prospect for any team.
