Chelsea's run of red cards leaves Conte bemused

Chelsea 0 Arsenal 0 David Luiz sent off as champions are held

Chelsea's Brazilian defender David Luiz (R) gestures after being shown a red card by English referee Michael Oliver (L) for a risky tackle during the English Premier League football match between Chelsea and Arsenal at Stamford Bridge in London on September 17, 2017. David Luiz was sent off with five minutes to go after a reckless challenge on Sead Kolasinac but the Gunners simply did not have enough time to make the man-advantage count.

Chelsea will be more frustrated by the result given how they have played in recent weeks but it could still prove a vital point later in the campaign. In the three games between the sides last season, Arsenal came out on top, having beaten Chelsea once in the league and in the FA Cup Final. "It was an intense game", Wenger said.

"We were focused and determined".

Wenger's side were savaged by former players and pundits after the 4-0 loss at Liverpool last month but showed far greater steel on Sunday and a point was the least they deserved. We are not in a transfer period and on the day we played Liverpool that affected us.

Keefe, Bruyette & Woods Reiterates "Buy" Rating for The Charles Schwab Corporation (SCHW)
It increased, as 45 investors sold ULTA shares while 187 reduced holdings. 97 funds opened positions while 223 raised stakes. Theleme Partners LLP owned 0.98% of Charles Schwab Corp worth $510,225,000 at the end of the most recent reporting period.

The Gunners had the better of the opening half and should have gone into the break ahead when Aaron Ramsey hit the post and Alexandre Lacazette somehow fired over from the close-range rebound.

While Eden Hazard only being named on the Chelsea bench was largely expected, Wenger dropping Alexis Sanchez to the role of substitute was not.

Arsenal's hearts were in their mouths when Hazard slalomed through and pulled the trigger but his fierce rising drive was well held by the perfectly-positioned Petr Cech. "You need to see what happened before the tackle".

The flow of red cards represents a contrast with the discipline that was a key part of Conte's title-winning side past year following a chaotic 2015-16 campaign, when Jose Mourinho was sacked amid rumours of a rebellion against him by several top players.
