Arsenal fought back from two goals down to secure a point from their Premier League encounter with Chelsea on Saturday night.

Chelsea put up what appeared to be a fine performance to lead Arsenal 2-0 in a thrilling contest, but let their guard down late on.

Cole Palmer converted from penalty spot to open the scoring after William Saliba was penalised for handball by VAR on 15 minutes.

Mykhailo Mudryk then doubled the lead early in the second half as the hosts cruised.
