Arsenal and Chelsea played out an at times entertaining but ultimately unfruitful 0-0 draw at the Emirates that puts the Blues just that little bit closer to their first Premier League title in five years.
Mourinho’s men were passionately celebrating at the end as if to confirm a draw is exactly what they came for and wanted and with a win on Wednesday away at Leicester and a home tie with Crystal Palace next weekend, the Premier League title will be returning to Stamford Bridge.
Arsenal, for their merit, gave it a good go and were certainly the more attacking, creative and ‘footballing’ side but couldn’t break through a steely Chelsea backline.
Here’s how we rated the Gunners in their Emirates stalemate:
GK: David Ospina – 6
Should arguably have given away a penalty when he clattered Oscar like a runaway train when the Brazilian tried an audacious chip in the first half.
Saved some decent Chelsea efforts in the 90 minutes and will be happy to have earned a clean sheet against the Champions-elect on his first outing against them.
RB: Hector Bellerin – 6
His intervention in the aforementioned clattering of Oscar stopped a certain Chelsea opener and despite his inexperience handled a difficult customer on the right in Eden Hazard.
