After a 0-0 first half, Arsenal broke the deadlock through Jack Wilshere on 63 minutes before Eden Hazard hit back for Chelsea from the penalty spot on 67 minutes.

On Dean's decision to penalise Chambers, Wenger added: "He saw what he wanted to see and we have to deal with that". I knew before the game that the last 20 minutes would be hard for us because we had a big disadvantage with the schedule.

"We got again a farcical decision on the penalty, but we knew that (could happen) before the game". Wilshere appeared to have no future with the Gunners when he was sent on loan to Bournemouth last season, but now Wenger says he deserves an England recall. "He deserves great credit for that", he said.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte had to defend Alvaro Morata for his untaken chances in Wednesday's 2-2 draw with Arsenal.

In a statement, the FA said: "The FA has requested observations from Arsene Wenger for media comments he made on Tuesday [02/01/18] and after last night's Arsenal versus Chelsea match [03/01/18]".

"For sure there is a lot of frustration from the coach after the game".

"I think we should won this game because of the chances we had".

The club didn't put their first formal offer on the table to Ozil's representative until December - a delay of nearly 10 months - while Wilshere has also yet to be offered a contract, despite Wenger claiming there is a difference in financial terms between club and player.

Speaking shortly after the match, Arsene Wenger, whose side now seat sixth on the EPL table; five points behind fourth placed Liverpool and 23 points behind league leaders Manchester City, said that he would've gone home and probably committed suicide had his side lost to Chelsea at the Emirates.
