Chelsea FC's run of red cards leaves coach Antonio Conte bemused

Romelu Lukaku scores for Manchester United versus Stoke in the Premier League

Mesut Ozil wasn't involved in the game due to a minor injury while Alexis Sanchez started on the substitutes bench despite his wonder goal on Thursday against Koln - a decision which drew immediate criticism from the Arsenal contingent on social media. Chelsea are third with 10 points. Every game against Arsenal is always very tough, we knew very well what type of game we had to face.

The result is also Arsenal's first point at Stamford Bridge in their last six visits, and also their first away point of the season.

'Hazard played very well, ' Conte said following the goalless draw. It appears the manager is eager to avoid rushing him back into the fray.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey told Sky Sports: "We needed that against a top team".

On Thursday, President Trump approved South Carolina's emergency disaster declaration so it can get ready for the storm's impact. State emergency officials said they don't want people to panic but want those in hurricane-prone areas to be prepared.

Wenger's Chelsea counterpart Antonio Conte refused to make a direct comment about Luiz's sending off but queried how his side had the habit of never ending with a full complement of players against Arsenal.

With a quarter of the game gone, Fabregas put Pedro through one-on-one with Petr Cech courtesy of a trademark lofted ball, but his Spanish compatriot took too long to get the ball out of his feet and fluffed the chance. Alexandre Lacazette was in the right place for the rebound but he could not keep his effort from sailing over the bar. The latter managed to cause the visitors' defence some troubles by drawing fouls in the final third, and Hazard also managed to get a shot on goal but Cech caught his attempt. "I don't know. I would have to see that again on video".

Most Arsenal fans went into Sunday's game against Chelsea with little hope of returning victorious from a stadium which has provided annual nightmares for Arsene Wenger and his side.

And David Luiz saw red for a high challenge on Sead Kolasinac with three minutes remaining, marking the third straight match Chelsea have had a player sent off against Arsenal and rounding off a poor performance from Antonio Conte's men.
