Stoppage-time strike by full-back earns Gunners 2-2 draw in pulsating London derby with Chelsea

Hector Bellerin’s stoppage-time strike salvaged a point for Arsenal in a breathless 2-2 draw with Chelsea.

Alvaro Morata sidefooted wide for the Blues on 13 minutes when clean through, while Alexis Sanchez's shot hit both posts after a wonderful intervention by Thibaut Courtois, who also turned Alexandre Lacazette’s effort wide.

Cesc Fabregas fired over and Mesut Ozil wide before Petr Cech’s double-save from Eden Hazard and Marcos Alonso on 50 minutes.

Jack Wilshere opened the scoring with his first goal since May 2015 when he reacted first to Rob Holding’s deflected through-ball, but Hazard converted a penalty four minutes later after being felled by Bellerin.

With four minutes left Alonso converted Davide Zappacosta's cross but Bellerin thrashed in from 16 yards to level.

Morata and Zappacosta almost won it for the visitors as both sides settled for a point each.

Chelsea remain third on 46 points. Arsenal are sixth.
