Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea: David Luiz sees red for rough tackle, London derby ends scoreless
Neither team could find the breakthrough despite chances
Arsenal and Chelsea played to a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday in Premier League play, with the Blues finishing with 10 men after a violent tackle from David Luiz resulted in a red card in the match's dying minutes.
Each team created chances but had trouble putting them on frame, as they finished with a share of the points just when it looked like Arsenal would take all three. A late header from Shkodran Mustafi found the back of the net off a set piece, but it was rightfully called offside.
Then, just moments before the game ended, David Luiz made this poorly-timed, aggressive tackle and was shown a straight red card. Check it out:
In the end, it was one of those high-profiled Premier League matches that looks entertaining on paper but produced very little theatrics.
The result means Chelsea stays in third with three points, while Arsenal has seven after five matches.
