Arsenal supporters will be on high spirits after a dramatic evening away at Chelsea in their latest Premier League match at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening.
The Gunners fell behind and were reduced to 10 men when Shkodran Mustafi’s poor back pass resulted in David Luiz felling Tammy Abraham inside the box, with the Brazilian given his marching orders and Jorginho netting the resulting spot-kick.
However, Mikel Arteta’s side responded in the second period with Gabriel Martinelli bursting through on goal to equalise – but the drama wasn’t finished there.
Cesar Azpilicueta restored the hosts’ lead from a set-piece, which seemed to have Arsenal set for defeated, but Hector Bellerin marked his return from injury by striking an effort beyond the reach of Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Now, footage has emerged showing Arsenal fans passionately celebrating the latest goal from Brazilian sensation Martinelli, who has now scored in his last two Premier League appearances.
The catch is that the brilliant footage was captured by a Chelsea supporter, who was probably hoping to see his side extend their advantage – and not a teenager bursting past N’Golo Kante slipping on the halfway line, before levelling the scores.
Speaking after the game, Arsenal boss Arteta praised his side’s spirit to comeback with a man disadvantage.
“The spirit, character, fight and leadership was there,” he said.
“When someone makes a mistake and someone has to take a red card for him it can happen.
“What has to happen is you have to stand up for him and every single player did that. If you put in everything, anything can happen.”
