Chelsea win for me. But only by one goal.

Gonna enjoy this today, as neither Manchester club in sight! I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking that :laugh:

Hope you Chelsea and Arsenal fans enjoy it anyway, despite the odd circumstances.
I like what Arteta has done already. Knows how to organise a team -- must have been admiring Liverpool from afar. ;)

Hmm as far as I can work out BBC One gives commentary and fake crowd, the red button gives commentary only, but there is no option to turn off the commentators...

That attacking presence may well put Chelsea up with us and City.

Most definitely if Frank remembers he has a defence to sort as well!

Have to add Utd too if they get Sancho.
Nah, I'm not going that far :laugh:

Plus Sancho to Utd is just a rumour. He keeps getting spotted wearing a Liverpool shirt.

I've never really taken much notice of Pulisic before, but he's a pretty good player.

Nice strike from Pepe. Unlucky with the offside.

No need for Azpi to bring him down.
Free penalty

'Aubameyang dived'
Arsenal 1-1 Chelsea

I have to say Arsenal are very, very fortunate about the penalty award. I thought Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang dived. Did Aubameyang have to go down? There was not enough contact for him to fall like that.

He was still through tho with a free shot, no?
It's deemed though the other defender "could" still get involved in the passage of play, so the red is ruled out.

It's a bullsh*t rule if a penalty is awarded. No need to ruin the game with a red too.

Bad news this injury for Chelsea.

Also I thought if first contact is outside area, which it was, then thats where foul is given?

I have to say I kinda agree with Chris Sutton too, went down very very easily, tho don't blame him really as defenders hand was on him, but wasn't pulling at all, really.

Always gonna be given though

Initial contact not the the same as the actual foul. Which was in the box.

If it was a foul.

Aubameyang was "clever" I think.

To me it was all the same both outside the box and inside really from what I saw. Nothing much more happened once inside the box. He basically had his hand on his shoulder and that didn't change. Only difference being when Aubameyang decided to fall to the ground.
