Arsenal v Chelsea
Barclays Premier League
Kick off: December 23, 2013 8:00 PM BST
Another disappointing result for the Gunners as the highly anticipated London derby ended scoreless, however a point is a point and Arsenal still remain well in the title race after a very difficult period.
A series of bad calls from Mike Dean failed to hand Arsenal the advantage they deserved. Firstly John Obi Mikel should have seen at least a card for his poorly timed challenge on Mikel Arteta before Walcott should have been awarded a penalty from a sloppy Willian challenge in the box.
Arsenal did have the chances to secure victory however, Olivier Giroud presented with two opportunities, one more clearcut than the other and he will be disappointed not to get on the scoresheet once again in a big fixture for the north London side.
