The Football Association announced on Friday evening: "Arsene Wenger will serve a touchline ban for Arsenal's next three matches after he was charged with misconduct".

The two sides traded possession, free kicks, and corners, with a good chance for Alexis from the edge of the box deflecting off the Chelsea wall and over the goal.

The official awarded the Blues a penalty for Hector Bellerin's challenge on Eden Hazard which had Wenger fuming.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he stands by the contentious remarks he made before and after Wednesday night's draw with Chelsea.

Chelsea was still pursuing the victor in the third minute of stoppage time when defender Davide Zappacosta struck the crossbar.

The draw meant Chelsea remain in third on 46 points while Arsenal are sixth on 39. Pulling themselves together, Arsenal took the ball back down to the other end and almost scored twice, with the ball rolling along the Chelsea goal line until Thibaut Courtois got to it before any Gunners could. In 22nd minutes, Chelsea was saved again by their stopper Courtois.

In the end, a point each was probably a fair result in what must go down as one of the most entertaining games of the season.

The Hellertown 7-Eleven was apparently one of almost 100 stores across the country visited by U.S. Employees of franchise stores are employees of the franchisee, not 7-Eleven, the company said.

Rob Holding's attempted pass into the box deflected off Alvaro Morata and fell to Jack Wilshere at a tight angle.

And moments after Bellerin scored, the Spaniard was faced with another one-on-one but fired straight at Cech before Zappacosta followed up with a vicious strike that came off the bar.

Morata failed to beat Cech again soon afterwards having been sent through on goal by Willian and Zappacosta struck the bar on the rebound from 20 yards out to bring an end to a fascinating game of football.

In 84th minutes of the game, Chelsea hoped to win the match when they got the second goals, Italian defender Zappacosta passed the ball to Spanish worldwide Marcos Alonso who scored the second goal for the Blues.

The Baggies were awarded a late penalty after Mike Dean adjudged Calum Chambers to have handled the ball in the area, and Jay Rodriguez subsequently converted to earn the home side a point at the Hawthorns.

"It was a game where we have shown great mental resources".

"I think it was a great football game, where we saw fantastic action on both sides and a game where we have shown great mental resources".
