Arsenal came back from two goals down to salvage a draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, with substitute Leandro Trossard netting the late equaliser.

The Gunners were left to rue missed chances in a pulsating first half, with Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Jesus both hitting the woodwork. Chelsea, on the other hand, were clinical in front of goal, with Cole Palmer converting a penalty after William Saliba was adjudged to have handled Mykhailo Mudryk's header in the box. Mudryk then doubled the Blues' lead with a fine individual effort, cutting inside from the left and firing home a powerful shot.

Arsenal continued to create chances in the second half, and they were finally rewarded in the 77th minute when Declan Rice's long-range effort deflected past Kepa Arrizabalaga in the Chelsea goal. Trossard then completed the comeback in the 84th minute, tapping home from close range after good work from Martin Odegaard.

The draw was a fair result on balance, with both teams having their fair share of chances. Arsenal will be disappointed to have conceded two goals, but they will be pleased with the character they showed to come back from two goals down. Chelsea will also be disappointed to have dropped points, but they will be encouraged by the performance of Mudryk, who was their best player on the pitch.
