Thanks for joining me for this terrific match. See you next time for more action.
90'
FT: Chelsea 2-2 Arsenal. What a game!!! 10 man Arsenal twice came from behind to nock a draw against Chelsea. If Arsenal show this desire for the rest of the season they might even make the Champions League spots.
90'
Abraham crosses in but it goes past everyone.
90'
4 minutes added time.
90'
Arsenal sub: Martinelli off for Willock.
89'
OH MY!! What a chance. The ball is crossed in and from yards out Batshuayi puts it wide. If he had left it Abraham had a tap in.
88'
WHAT A GAME!!!!! Bellerín takes a shot from the edge of the box that curls into the bottom corner. Great goal. 2-2!!!
87'
BELLLLLLERRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
85'
Mount plays the quick free-kick to Abraham, Arsenal are caught sleeping. The English striker crosses it in and Azpilcueta is there to tap it past Leno.
84'
CHELSEA GOAAAAAAAAL
81'
Arsenal sub: Holding on for Pepe.
80'
The cross comes in, Barkley gets up and heads but Leno does well to tip it round the post.
79'
Chelsea sub: Willian off for Batshuayi.
77'
The free-kick is swung in but Abraham heads straight at Leno.
76'
Guendouzi is booked for a cynical foul on Mount.
73'
Willian has a shot from inside the box that Leno matches with the save.
72'
Lacazette has just scored but he was miles offside.
69'
Chelsea sub: Kanté off for Mount.
68'
And so, from nowhere Arsenal find themselves back in the game. Both goals have come from errors.
66'
Chelsea sub: Kovacic off for Barkley.
65'
Rudiger's shot from outside the box is saved comfortably by Leno.
64'
What a mistake from Kanté but what great play from Martinelli. Arsenal break on the counter through the Brazilian. Bear in mind he is halfway in his own half. He runs with it and his touch is too hard, it looks easy for Kanté at the halfway line but he slips and misses the ball. Martinelli keeps going and runs with the ball until he gets into the box and slots it past Kepa.
63'
MARTINELIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!
60'
Arsenal have had no shots tonight...
59'
Christensen is booked for a foul on Lacazette.
55'
Arsenal sub: Ozil off for Guendouzi.
54'
Looks like Guendouzi is coming on.
52'
Chelsea have just had a shout for handball turned down by the ref.
46'
I said earlier that Holding was getting ready, Arteta must have changed his mind.
46'
And we're back.
45'
HT: Chelsea 1-0 Arsenal. Not too many chances so far but Chelsea have been the better side and it was made a lot harder for the Gunners after Luiz was sent off. 2nd half to come.
45'
2 minutes added time!!
45'
Another half-chance for Chelsea. Hudson-Odoi crosses in but Jorginho can't direct his header towards go and it goes well wide.
43'
Emerson crosses in the corner but Rudiger heads it well over.
40'
Arsenal going through a spell where they are on top at the moment.
37'
Looks like Holding will be coming on for Arsenal, presumably to fill the gap left by Luiz.
32'
Another Chelsea chance. Hudson-Odoi has a shot from inside the box that Leno gets down and parries. Chelsea all over Arsenal.
31'
Not what David Luiz would have wanted, getting sent off against his ex-team.
30'
Chelsea fans chanting "David Luiz he's one of our own..."
28'
A nightmare for Mustafi. Mustafi tries to play it back to Leno, he scuffs it and Abraham runs in and takes it by the keeper, he is about to get a shot away and Luiz fouls him. Jorginho steps up from the penalty spot and puts it in Leno's bottom left corner. He goes the right away but it's like a postage stamp and right in the corner.
27'
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAL!!!!
26'
And Luiz is off!!!!!!
25'
PENALTY CHELSEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
22'
Willian plays it to Emerson who crosses in, Jorginho flicks it and it deflects off an Arsenal player and out for a corner. The corner leads to nothing.
21'
Emerson is booked for a foul on Pepe.
20'
Arsenal really need to get a positive result here if they still want to have hopes of reaching the top 4.
16'
Hudson-Odoi puts in a cross from the left with his right foot, but it almost catches Leno out and hits the top of the bar. If it went in I'm sure he would have said it was a shot.
15'
Great chance for Chelsea. Hudson-Odoi crosses in, Rudiger heads it back towards where it came from and from yards out Abraham heads straight at Leno. Probably should have done better.
13'
Strong away support at the game tonight. Stadium is packed.
11'
The corner comes in for Christensen, but he wasn't expecting it and heads it wide.
7'
Kovacic has just had a shot from the centre of the box blocked, half chance though.
4'
Both teams have started brightly.
2'
Great atmosphere here. The stadium is so loud.
1'
And we're off.
Prev.
Arsenal haven't won away in 2020, to be fair they have only played one match.
Prev.
And the teams are out.
Prev.
Teams are in the tunnel.
Prev.
Prev.
The Gunners are in the house.
Prev.
If my stats are right this is the first-ever time the two have face each other on 21st January.
Prev.
Hello guys.
Prev.
Chelsea obviously won the last match between the pair: 2-1 at the Emirates in December. Arsenal last beat Chelsea almost a year ago to the day on 19th January 2019. Arsenal last won at Stamford Bridge in 2011. The Gunners won 5-3 that day with Frank Lampard scoring for the Blues, and Mikel Arteta starting for Arsenal...
Prev.
Arsenal XI: Leno, Bellerin, Mustafi, Luiz, Saka, Torreira, Xhaka, Pepe, Ozil, Martinelli, Lacazette.
Prev.
Chelsea XI: Arrizabalaga, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, Emerson Palmieri, Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Hudson-Odoi, Abraham, Willian.
Prev.
Hello and welcome to Stamford Bridge for this huge Premier League match. Arsenal need a win if they want to make the top 4, whereas Chelsea can go 13 points clear of the Gunners. Team news to come.
