Arsenal Miss Chance For Christmas Number One

Liverpool will spend Christmas at the top of Premier League table after Arsenal failed to capitalize on their game in hand.

The Gunners drew 0-0 at home to Chelsea, in what was a dull 90 minutes, that only sprung to life after some heavy tackling from the away team.

Frank Lampard had the best chance of the opening 45, but his effort came back off the underside of the bar.

The main talking point at half time, was a penalty decision not given to the Gunners. Replays showed Willian go to ground and make contact with Theo Walcott, but the referee waved play on. 

The biggest talking points of a dull second half, didn't even happen near either goal. First, John Obi Mikel seemed to go over the ball in a sliding challenge and connect with the ankle of Mikel Arteta. 

Branislav Ivanovic then raised his foot and came within inches of Mesut Ozil's face. 

 

After the game Jose Mourinho accused Arsenal of "Crying" over some of the Blues heavy tackles. But Arsene Wenger refused to get dragged into a slagging match. 

The Gunners are now in second place behind Liverpool on goal difference.

Chelsea are a further two points back in fourth place
