Arsenal pulled off a remarkable late comeback to secure a point at Stamford Bridge just when Chelsea seemed poised to claim their most significant victory under manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Chelsea dominated the game after Cole Palmer opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the 15th minute, with William Saliba penalized for handball following VAR intervention.
Arsenal appeared destined for their first Premier League loss of the season when Mykhailo Mudryk’s speculative effort from wide caught Arsenal’s goalkeeper David Raya off guard and out of position three minutes into the second half.
Arsenal struggled to create chances and appeared sloppy until they were given a lifeline with 13 minutes left. Declan Rice capitalized on a poor clearance from Chelsea’s goalkeeper Robert Sanchez and sent the ball back into the net.
Incredibly, Arsenal leveled the score seven minutes later when substitute Leandro Trossard made a crucial contribution, scoring at the far post as Chelsea hesitated to deal with Bukayo Saka’s cross.
