Anthony Taylor brings the game to an end. What a thrilling fixture, one of the best so far this season.

Another great spell from Arsenal. Lacazette has a go and it's deflected just wide.

Second half kicked off by Chelsea. If it's anything like the first, we should be in for a treat.

Half-time and it's goalless. It has been played at an amazing speed and it's been highly entertaining. Morata missed a glorious chance and Courtois and both posts denied Sanchez. Goals surely to come after the break!
