Marcos Alonso thought he had scored the victor on 84 minutes after slotting in Zappacosta's low cross but Hector Bellerin grabbed a late equaliser in the 92nd minute to rescue a point for Arsenal.

The Frenchman hit out at the standard of refereeing in English football following the Gunners' 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion last week, having seen a late penalty call go against his side.

Following Arsenal's 2-2 draw with Chelsea Wednesday, Wenger again complained about the "farcical" decision by Anthony Taylor to award Chelsea a penalty in 67th minute, leading the FA to ask for the manager's observations.

Wenger said: "It was a great game and we showed great mental resources". "In the last game against Stoke, I said it was important for the striker to have chances to score". Bellerin's later equalizer wiped out Marcos Alonso's strike.

The displaced residents were placed on an nearby bus so they could keep warm while firefighters continued battling the inferno. Officials say over 200 firefighters have responded to the blaze at a four-storey building near the Bronx Zoo in Van Nest.

"This game was exciting for people who watched, less for us", said Blues manager Conte, who has won just once in six games against Arsenal.

"To draw at the Emirates is a good result", added the Italian. At the other end Chelsea carved the hosts open only for Alvaro Morata and Cesc Fabregas to waste clear chances.

The North London club, which drew the first blood via a Jack Wilshere goal in the 63rd minute, had to settle for a 2-2 draw with the visitors.

"I don't know, maybe I would have gone home and committed suicide tonight" Wenger told reporters after the final whistle when asked what he would have done if the effort from Zappacosta went in.
