The second half started just as fast-paced as the first half and it looks like another exciting 45 minutes and Wilshere had a great call for a free kick on the edge of the Chelseas box but the ref said no, and suddenly Alonso was crossing straight into Cech’s box but the keeper was equal to it. Arsenal then went on the front foot and were finding each other and were definitely on the uppers for the first 15 minutes and it looks like we are the most likely to score.
Courtois is in excellent form but the chances are all going Arsenal’s way and Wilshere finally gets the breakthrough. The pressure pays off and Arsenal are looking commanding. Go on you Gooners!
Arsenal went all out for the second while in total control and Lacazette had a great chance which was deflected into the side netting. The Gunners are keeping their place as Conte’s bogey team but with Chelsea’s first break of the half Bellerin somehow gave away a penalty kicking Hazard and of course Cech could never save a spot kick from anyone never mind Hazard! Game On!
The Gunners didnt drop their heads and went all out attack mode but Chelsea got another quick break and Morata missed another chip against Cech and it went wide. But Conte is obviously worried and brought on Drinkwater for Fabregas to try and tighten up the midfield but it was Chelsea who came closest next when Kante got a deflected shot that went past the post. Both teams have stepped up a gear and the game is rocking. !5 minutes to go and it looks like one moment of brilliance can win it for either side…
With 15 minutes to go Morata and Hazard combined to test Cech on another quick break but the final pass was closer to Cech that Hazard and Arsenal got back on the attack. But it is looking like anyone can win it but the Gunners are holding their own under pressure.
With 9 minutes to go Conte surprisuingly took off Hazard but a fresh Willian could cause problems to anyone in his place. One minute later Willian crosses an excellent ball to Zappacosta on the wing. He gets past Maitland-Niles and the cross lands on Alonso’s foot 3 yards out and suddenly the Blues have broken Arsenal’s hearts and they will have to go all out for an equalizer now with just six minutes left…
Conte gets all his players in defence and Arsenal just attack attack attack. Welbeck goes down the wing and then Walcott comes on for Chambers as Wenger goes for goal desperately and it pays off!
An incredible ending as Bellerin gets a bouncing ball outside the box and shoots it past Cech who was unsighted and we are back in the game. Jeez one point was saved in an incredible match that was worthy of the billing. Both sides played like Champions in one of the most exciting games of the season. Wenger will leave very relieved but can we expect another rant because of another penalty given against us?
