Chelsea welcomed Arsenal at Stamford Bridge earlier this evening as they hoped to earn a victory at home in the Premier League. The Blues made a good start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 15th minute when Cole Palmer converted his spot-kick. The home team controlled the game well and managed to get to the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.
Mykhailo Mudryk doubled Chelsea’s lead in the 48th minute. However, Mauricio Pochettino’s men conceded their first goal in the 77th minute when Declan Rice found the back of the net. Leandro Trossard ended up equalising for Arsenal just seven minutes later as Chelsea had to settle for an entertaining 2-2 draw in front of their home fans.
