Chelsea's Brazilian defender David Luiz (R) gestures after being shown a red card by English referee Michael Oliver (L) for a unsafe tackle during the English Premier League football match between Chelsea and Arsenal at Stamford Bridge in London on September 17, 2017.

And David Luiz saw red for a high challenge on Sead Kolasinac with three minutes remaining, marking the third straight match Chelsea have had a player sent off against Arsenal and rounding off a poor performance from Antonio Conte's men. It was an intense game, ' the Frenchman said. "The battle was total".

Arsene Wenger, meanwhile, was pleased with his team's response to the 4-0 hammering they suffered against Liverpool two weeks ago.

"We were focused and determined".

"We have responded well to losing on the opening day and got some strong results".

Arsenal last won a Premier League away game against a side that finished in the top six last season, back in January 2015 (2-0 at Man City) - they've since lost eight and drawn five of their 13 matches on the road against these clubs.

However, Ramsey stabbed his shot against the far post before Lacazette somehow contrived to scuff the rebound over from close range.

The chances dried up after the break prompting Arsenal to introduce Alexis Sanchez after he was left on the bench while Chelsea threw on Eden Hazard for Willian. However, on the last two occasions that the sides have met, Arsenal have come out victorious. He was immediately shown a red card by referee Michael Oliver.

The flow of red cards represents a contrast with the discipline that was a key part of Conte's title-winning side a year ago following a chaotic 2015-16 campaign, when Jose Mourinho was sacked amid rumours of a rebellion against him by several top players. "You need to see what happened before the tackle".
