LONDON (Reuters) – Arsenal produced a vastly-improved away performance to draw 0-0 with Premier League champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

After defeat at Stoke City and a thrashing at Liverpool, Arsene Wenger’s side hit the post through Aaron Ramsey and had Shkodran Mustafi’s headed goal disallowed as they had the better of the chances in a lively derby.

Tempers frayed near the end with Chelsea’s David Luiz shown a red card for a wild tackle on Sead Kolasinac.

Arsenal’s draw snapped a five-match losing streak away to Chelsea in the league and left them in 12th place with seven points. Chelsea are third with 10 points.
