Chelsea could have stolen the lead despite being second-best in the encounter, but after Raheem Sterling supplied a pass to Kai Havertz close to the Arsenal area, the German ignored calls from teammates Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mason Mount for a cross but went for goal himself, firing across the goal to deny Chelsea the chance at peppering Aaron Ramsdale’s gloves.

Arsenal’s Ben White and Gabriel Martinelli were guilty of missing chances to put their side ahead. White shot wide in the 10th minute, while Martinelli followed suit seven minutes later.
