Gary Neville calls out Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez after Chelsea draw

Chelsea Arsenal Antonio Conte was right to put Eden Hazard on bench

There were plenty of annoyed Arsenal fans when Wenger made a decision to sign his new deal and many felt that he probably should have left the club after winning the FA Cup against Chelsea.

"They were disciplined, worked together and pressed as a unit to close down Chelsea", the former Arsenal player was quoted as saying by The Independent after the match ended 0-0 at Chelsea's Stamford Bridge Stadium here on Sunday evening.

Glimpses of this 13/14 Ramsey were seen at the end of last season when he came back from an injury.

Martin Keown has challenged Arsenal to follow Manchester United's example and win the Europa League this season.

. Steve Nicol and Shaka Hislop question how much Arsenal's win over Cologne will help them heading into their clash against Chelsea.

"Basically, in the last few years, Chelsea has had great teams so it was always hard to win there but our record against Chelsea has been good, we won here last year, we won the FA Cup final, on penalties in the Community Shield, so let's focus on the quality of our game and not too much on where we play".

"Last year, until we lost at Everton [in December], we had not lost away the whole year". I believe the pitch is 105 metres long and 68 metres wide everywhere, and never in my life could I accept or understand that it's different away from home. A manager who believes so strongly in the football he wants his team to play, Wenger ignores the evidence that has mounted up in front of him.

Is there more to this than we know or was it just another moment in time that has been taken out of context?

Wenger said: "In the last few years, Chelsea has had great teams so it was always hard to win there but our record against Chelsea has been good, we won (at home) last year, we won the FA Cup final, on penalties in the Community Shield so let's focus on the quality of our game and not too much on where we play".

The only frustration for Arsenal was a failure to take their chances, with French striker Alexandre Lacazette largely anonymous before being substituted.

He said: "It is important to get a result against a rival, of course it's very important".

"What is a problem for us is to focus on our performance and play our game". Find us on Facebook too!

"There has been so much fear at Arsenal of losing Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil".
