Eden Hazard Responds to Arsenal Diving Claims, Rues Chelsea Missed Chances

No wonder Wenger was in full deflection mode after dropping yet more points in a 2-2 draw with Chelsea on Wednesday.

Moses started the game but was replaced by Davide Zappacosta in the 56th minute after struggling to impress.

And Wenger was swift to raise the stakes again after the draw with top-four rivals Chelsea, saying the penalty count against Arsenal was "not coincidence". Hooked after 56 minutes.

Arsenal were on the end of another controversial penalty decision, this time from referee Anthony Taylor, and with the governing body already requesting that he explain his comments in relation to that fixture, he could face more time away from the touchline.

Marcos Alonso thought he had scored the victor on 84 minutes after slotting in Zappacosta's low cross but Hector Bellerin grabbed a late equaliser in the 92nd minute to rescue a point for Arsenal.


"We don't need a replay, it was a penalty", he told Sky Sports after the game.

And, with Arsenal having endured a poor few months - including missing out on Champions League qualification for the first time under Arsene Wenger - it is the Blues, Spurs, City, United and the Reds who are represented in the team of the year - according to fans. "Both teams had chances that they missed but I think it was a great game of football".

"To draw at the Emirates is a good result", added the Italian.

The Belgium global fell under minimal contact from Hector Bellerin to earn Antonio Conte's side the spot kick which brought them level, just four minutes after Jack Wilshere's 63rd minute opener.
