Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea: Vote for Player Ratings/MotM

As expected, Chelsea parked that rusty ol' bus of theirs and dared us to score. We had chances but couldn't do much with them. In fact, Chelsea had the best chance of the first half when Oscar, who had started as a false-nine in the absence of Costa, was played through on goal only for Bellerín to clear it off the line with a diving header as Ospina collided with Oscar. The concussed Brazilian was (eventually) subbed off by Drogba to start the second half, but little changed as Chelsea continued to defend deep in numbers, enough to make one wonder why they spent so much on Hazard, Oscar, Fabregas, Costa, and Remy. The Chelsea players' celebration at "winning" a point says it all. Still, the result is about as much as we could have hoped for, and it keeps us level on points with Man City, and we still have a game in hand. More on those issues later; for now, give our lads what they deserve in the poll below...
