Arsenal 2-2 Chelsea: Bellerin Nets Late Winner To Give Gunners A Point

Hector Bellerin‘s stoppage time goal was the final marker of a 2-2 thriller between Arsenal an Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night.
Eden Hazard and Marcos Alonso scored and Thibaut Courtois was strong in goal as Chelsea came back to take a lead on Arsenal 2-1.

Jack Wilshere had put Arsenal deservedly ahead in the 63rd minute, but the match was only level for four minutes, with Eden Hazard scored a penalty to level after he had been fouled by  Bellerin.

Chelsea must have thought they had secured all three points when Marcos Alonso flicked home substitute Davide Zappacosta's low cross after 84 minutes to make 2-1.
But Chelsea were level four minutes later at the Emirates as Eden Hazard sent Petr Cech the wrong way from the penalty spot

But in the second minute of stoppage time, Bellerin produced an exceptional half-volley to earn the Gunners a point before Zappacosta ripped an effort off the cross bar at the other end!

The draw means Chelsea stays third behind Manchester United, while Arsenal remains sixth.

That’s a point behind North London Derby rivals Spurs, who play West Ham to finish the festive fixture season on Thursday.
