Hector Bellerin fired in a late equalizer as Arsenal fought back to draw 2-2 with Chelsea at the Emirates on Wednesday night.

Hector Bellerin struck a dramatic stoppage-time equaliser in a frantic end to a pulsating clash at the Emirates, which then saw Davide Zappacosta hit the crossbar seconds later as the Premier League champions nearly snatched a victor.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been sanctioned for misconduct after the club's 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion in the English Premier League last Sunday. He is not lucky in this period.

"For a striker it is very important to score, it is a pity, he had many chances to score, but I'm very happy with his commitment and effort for the team".

Chelsea's failure to hold on for the win denied Antonio Conte's men the chance to climb above Manchester United.

His Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger hailed his display as the Gunners grabbed a point after a late Hector Bellerin strike pulled the home side level after Marcos Alonso thought he had grabbed the victor for the West Londoners minutes earlier. "Instead, we're talking about a good draw against a good team", he told Sky Sports.

The Arsenal midfielder was right to be cautioned in the first half when he brought down Cesc Fabregas with a reckless tackle.

"But this is football and we must accept the final result and continue to work really hard to try to score more". We win together, we draw together, we lose together. "What I find awful is we just saw a great game and we talk only about this and for me it would be nice if we think about football for a change", he said.

Arsenal isn't even in City's slipstream but floating far from the leaders, sitting adrift by 23 points and actually closer to the relegation zone by four points.
