Unusual for Chelsea to get another red card against Arsenal - Conte

But little more than 12 months on from Conte's first London derby with Arsenal, Arsene Wenger's men visit Stamford Bridge without a win at Chelsea's home in nearly six years.

However, in an interview with Sky Sports ahead of Arsenal's trip to Stamford Bridge on Sunday, Fabregas has revealed the circumstances behind the deal to take him to Chelsea three years ago.

The point means they remain three adrift of their rivals and six off Manchester City at the top, having gone 14 matches without beating a top-six team away from home in the top flight.

"I felt that was a game with intensity, with two teams going for it, battles all over the pitch, and we responded well", Wenger said.

Antonio Conte has warned his Chelsea stars to keep their cool as they bid to avoid more red card misery against Arsenal.

Disregarding the preseason friendly in China which the Blues won 3-0, the past two meetings between the sides in London, both at Wembley, have ended in disappointment and frustration as the Gunners prevailed on both occasions winning the FA Cup and Community Shield in the process.

'My feelings for the club, well I don't have to repeat myself, every single time we play against them, because it's known. It's different in the championship. When you play this kind of massive game you know very well that anything can happen. We realised that what we delivered [at Liverpool] was not good enough. You do not win the [FA] Cup the way we did without it.

'We have come here and struggled in recent years but we showed what we're capable of, competing against the best. His side have two wins and two defeats in the Premier League so far, but did get their Europa League run underway with a victory. We are all human beings. "That's what we saw".

As Chelsea's frustration mounted, Luiz shrugged off Alexis Sanchez - on as a substitute - and launched into a needless lunge on Kolasinac in the 87th minute. A odd situation. Look, I was a player and I think this can happen, this type of period, if you are not so lucky and receive red cards.

"It was excessive force, yes", he said. After that, it's the decision of the referee. However, if you look at his overall Arsenal record of 23 goals in 119 EPL games this is consistent, and you could even say it should be worse against the bigger clubs so maybe he raises his game in important matches.
