Manchester Utd thrash Everton, Chelsea and Arsenal draw

After a sharp opening fifteen minutes from the hosts, Arsenal recovered to arguably have the better of the first 45 overall, culminating in Aaron Ramsey stumbling through the Chelsea defence before poking the ball onto the post.

David Luiz's red card was the third Chelsea have endured in five games this season, but Conte merely described it as "strange" rather than a concern.

Antonio Conte's side now third after three games, Arsenal languish in 12th place on the table.

Arguably they should at least have got on the scoreboard but their record signing Alexandre Lacazette missed an open goal in the first-half. David Luiz was sent off in the 87th minute for a high, sliding challenge on Sead Kolasinac. "But sometimes, it is very unusual to finish for the third time in a row with 10 men against Arsenal". "It was an intense game", Wenger said.

After the 0-0 draw against Arsenal Conte said: "The last 20 minutes Hazard played very well. But, for sure, we have to wait for the referee's decision to know how many games he will be suspended for".

"For sure it's unusual".

The flow of red cards represents a contrast with the discipline that was a key part of Conte's title-winning side a year ago following a chaotic 2015-16 campaign, when Jose Mourinho was sacked amid rumours of a rebellion against him by several top players. "A odd situation", he told reporters.

"In the end, we'll try to pay more attention in the future".

Both sides had their chances and Arsenal even had a goal ruled out for offside.

"I think, I repeat, in this situation when a player is fouled in a continuing way - he continued to push him".

"Sometimes you forget Arsenal is one of the top six teams in England [they are] a strong team, a really good team". "Arsenal and Chelsea are both great teams and I think it is a good draw".
