    ARSENAL 1-2 CHELSEA

    Andre Marriner blows his whistle to put an end to proceedings here at the Emirates after Chelsea came out on top 2-1 after a thoroughly entertaining match.

    93. Barkley does well to drive into the Arsenal half and finds Zappacosta, who puts a decent ball in the box and a shot from Batshuayi goes well over the bar.

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 1-2 CHELSEA

    90. Three minutes of added time.

    Chelsea on the attack in the final moments here and Batshuayi almost makes it three, but his shot was blocked and Arsenal's clearance doesn't go far.

    Chelsea come again…

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 1-2 CHELSEA

    89. CHANCE! Aubameyang finds himself one on one thanks to some intelligent attacking play from Nketiah, who has been excellent since coming on.

    Aubameyang's effort is well saved by Kepa, who gambled and got it right. More frustration for Arsenal.

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 1-2 CHELSEA

    87. CHANCE! Abraham is again one on one after a long-ball caught out the Arsenal back line, but his eventual effort is tame at best and he'll be very disappointed not to do better there.

    Leno did well to stand his ground and make himself big, but a striker with a point to prove such as Abraham should be finding the back of the net there.

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 1-2 CHELSEA

    86. The replays show that Willock's effort from a few minutes ago definitely went over the line. Where's VAR when you need it?

    CHELSEA SUBSTITUTION:

    OFF: Trevoh Chalobah.

    ON: Jake Clarke-Salter.

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 1-2 CHELSEA

    85. YELLOW CARD! Nuno Tavares is booked for a foul on the right-hand side.

    Barkley takes the free-kick but it's headed out for a Chelsea corner.

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 1-2 CHELSEA

    84. CHANCE! Another sensational corner delivery from Pepe, whose set-pieces have been flawless today.

    There's a goalmouth scramble and Chelsea just about manage to get the ball out of the danger zone.

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 1-2 CHELSEA

    82. CHANCE! Abraham breaks free in the area after another bad decision from Leno and instead of having a go, he tries to find Batshuayi, but it's blocked and cleared.

    He HAS to have a go there. Poor from Abraham.

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 1-2 CHELSEA

    80. CHANCE! My word. Pepe does fantastically on the right for Arsenal, who finds Willock inside the box.

    Willock thumps it from close range and it cannons of the bar and bounces ON THE LINE.

    It looks like the ball actually may have bounced over the line, but it happened so quickly and immediately bounced back out.

    Harsh on Willock as it was a superb effort and Pepe had done really well to create it.

    Arsenal will feel hard done by not to be on level terms there.

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 1-2 CHELSEA

    79. Lokonga, Tavares and Nketiah combining very well on the left for Arsenal, showing a lot of energy and a surprising sharpness, but nothing comes of it this time.

    Arsenal on the ascension at the Emirates…

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 1-2 CHELSEA

    77. CHANCE! Nuno Tavares does extremely well on the left-hand side and puts an excellent ball in for Aubameyang, who just can't make the right connection with it as it goes wide.

    It was a wonderful chance and he knows it. A player of his calibre has to be burying that.

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 1-2 CHELSEA

    75. After two goals in quick succession and a host of Arsenal substitutes, the game has really opened up.

    Arsenal driving forward on the right hand side and Dujon Sterling makes a tough tackle but goes unpunished.

    Arsenal causing problems going forward, but still leaky at the back.

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 1-2 CHELSEA

    ARSENAL SUBSTITUTIONS:

    OFF: Pablo Mari, Kieran Tierney, Mohamed Elneny, Alexandre Lacazette, Calum Chambers, Emile Smith-Rowe.

    ON: Nuno Tavares, Joe Willock, Hector Bellerin, Eddie Nketiah, Albert Lokonga, Sead Kolasinac.

  • George Moore

    GOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLL!!!!!!

    ARSENAL 1-2 CHELSEA

    Tammy Abraham fires home following ANOTHER Arsenal error at the back.

    The Gunners were caught in possession once more and when the ball lands to Tammy Abraham, he doesn't disappoint as his finish finds the bottom corner to restore Chelsea's lead.

    Two-one Chelsea!

  • George Moore

    GOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!

    ARSENAL 1-1 CHELSEA

    Another wonderful delivery from Pepe, who AGAIN finds Xhaka on the edge of the six yard box and this time he buries his header in the bottom corner.

    All square in the second half and Arsenal are about to make a host of changes.

    One-all!

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 0-1 CHELSEA

    67. CHANCE! This time it's Chelsea who are caught in possession as Pepe does superbly to win the ball back in the opposition half and he bursts into the box.

    He's almost one on one but Dujon Sterling makes a fantastic last ditch challenge and the ball goes out for a corner.

    Pepe then takes the corner, which is excellent, but Xhaka's header goes over.

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 0-1 CHELSEA

    65. CHANCE! Arsenal try to play out from the back but Leno's pass to Xhaka is intercepted and Barkley again finds himself with the ball in the box, but his shot doesn't have enough on it and it comes to nothing.

    Tuchel will expect more from his substitutes, who have had two great chances since coming on.

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 0-1 CHELSEA

    64. CHANCE! It's poor from Chelsea as the new subs combine to create a wonderful opportunity but Barkley completely misses it and it's then fired well over the bar after Batshuayi had done well to break on the right.

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 0-1 CHELSEA

    CHELSEA SUBSTITUTIONS:

    OFF: Loftus-Cheek, Mendy, Pulisic, Ziyech.

    ON: Barkley, Batshuayi, Kepa, Kante.

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 0-1 CHELSEA

    60. The sun is out now in North London and the players squint as a Chelsea corner comes in from the right.

    Leno does extremely well to collect it but when he tries to distribute it he gets it all wrong.

    Frustration for Arsenal as they're not able to catch Chelsea on the break, who had men committed forward.

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 0-1 CHELSEA

    56. Chelsea win the ball back on the half-way line and seek to break down the left-hand side with Ziyech taking on several Arsenal defenders.

    Arsenal stand firm and the ball ends up with Loftus-Cheek, who loses possession and Arsenal can break.

    It's end to end at the minute and there's bound to be more goals if it carries on like this.

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 0-1 CHELSEA

    54. Arsenal win a free-kick on the edge of the Chelsea box and Lacazette's strike is blocked for a corner.

    Nothing ultimately comes of it but Arsenal are starting to show the kind of attacking intent that Mikel Arteta would have asked for at half time.

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 0-1 CHELSEA

    51. CHANCE! Ziyech makes a superb run and does phenomenally to spring Arsenal's offside trap.

    He was one on one and tried to take on Leno, which he did extremely well, but over complicates it and White gets back in time to make the block.

    Ziyech can't believe he hasn't scored and neither can his manager.

  • George Moore

    ARSENAL 0-1 CHELSEA

    49. An extremely exciting start to the second half.

    A chance for each side so far with Christian Pulisic managing to get a shot off for Chelsea and Arsenal also forcing a save out of Mendy.

    The changes seem to have increased the urgency in the game, with Xhaka going in hard on Zappacosta in trademark fashion.

    This doesn't feel much like a friendly game.
