Tactical masterclass from Conte helps 10-man Chelsea shut out Arsenal

Champions League odds win favourites

"I didn't see the red card properly but David Luiz thought he was fouled beforehand", Cahill said on the incident. There is a great disappointment for this and it's hard to understand why, but we have to continue and show that we are stronger than them'.

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte is adamant Arsenal are a Premier League title contender.

It is the third time in a row in which Chelsea have been reduced to 10 men against the Gunners, who earned a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge, but Wenger believes that the referee made the right call.

Eden Hazard started on the bench after Conte said in midweek that the Belgian was "very, very close to 100% fitness".

"For sure it's odd. A odd situation", he told reporters. But we have to try and think only to play the game.

Ahead of a game against very familiar opposition to him, Antonio Conte explained the decision-making process he will undertake when he comes to select his starting XI. "Sometimes the opponents deserve a red card but, instead, they carry on playing with 11 men".

Arsenal had the better of the chances at Stamford Bridge, and Conte paid tribute to both sides for what he described as an "open" game, with both sides going for the win.

"I think we have to try to improve all the situations physical, tactical and we will try to pay more attention in the future".

"People forget that two months ago we beat Chelsea in the Cup final and they don't give you the Cup, you know", Wenger, whose side were lambasted after a 4-0 capitulation at Liverpool in their last away league game, told reporters.

Following today's result, the reigning Champions now have 10 points after five games, the same total we had at this stage a year ago.

In this morning's other clash, Chelsea was held to a 0-0 draw for the first time in nearly 20 months today when Arsenal produced the type of disciplined display lacking during recent setbacks to frustrate the Premier League champions. I remember when I was coach of the national team and there was a terrorist attack, we stayed with the national team and played against Belgium.
