Arsenal vs. Chelsea highlights: Dramatic late equalizer salvages draw for Arsenal

The first 45 minutes of Chelsea vs. Arsenal on Wednesday provided little. The second 45, however, is why we love the Premier League. Four goals, controversy and heart-pounding moments took over the Emirates in the London derby. It went from looking like an Arsenal win to looking like a draw, to looking like a Chelsea win, to ending in a dramatic split of the points. Here's everything that went down:

It all started on 63 minutes, when Jack Wilshere finished beautifully into the upper left corner to put Arsenal up 1-0:


Arsenal was in a good spot there, but that only lasted for a few minutes. Hector Bellerin caught Eden Hazard on the foot inside the box, and a soft penalty was giving. We're talking like brand-new-mattress soft:

And Hazard took the penalty and converted to draw even:

And, as expected, Chelsea came from behind to go up 2-1 as Marcos Alonso scored again. The Spanish left back scored his 11th goal for the Blues over the last two seasons with this finish, but a lot of the creidt has to go to Davide Zappacosta for his assist:

And that seemed to be it, the Blues were going to leave Arsenal with a win. That is until the 92nd minute, when Bellerin made up for his error with this delicious hit:

My goodness, that's quite the strike:

There you have it, a four-goal thriller where no striker scored but two defenders did. Just as we all expected.
