Callum Hudson-Odoi sends message to Maurizio Sarri after Arsenal clash

Callum Hudson-Odoi sends message to Maurizio Sarri after Arsenal clash

Petr Cech's penalty record at Arsenal isn't great, but he thwarted the England global and did the same to Alvaro Morata in normal time.

On a pitch including Premier League, Champions League and World Cup winners, 17-year-old Hudson-Odoi was a class above as he stole the show with a mightily impressive display belying his youth.

Arsenal pushed hard for an equaliser in front of a supportive crowd after the break, but Rudiger came within inches of scoring a carbon copy of his first-half opener when he headed Pedro's corner wide.

Both sides produced a ideal set of five penalties each to send the shootout to sudden death.

Chelsea were awarded a penalty for Hector Bellerin's foul on Hudson-Odoi but the Gunners keeper saved low to his right from Alvaro Morata's spot kick.

Youngster Reiss Nelson delivered a pin-point cross to Lacazette to bury in the final minute.

He was awarded the freedom to linger up the pitch even when Chelsea were off the ball, and he duly capitalised on the space afforded to him.

Morata then completely missed another Hudson-Odoi cross and at the other end, as the game flowed, Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero thwarted Sead Kolasinac. "It might be different", Emery explained as he awaits the results of a scan.

Arsenal will have the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mesut Ozil, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey starting tonight, while Peter Cech captains the side.

Inside the opening five minutes, he raced into the left channel, checked and found an unmarked Fabregas, whose shot was tipped over by Cech.

For Sarri, too, personnel issues continue. He scuffed a penalty, a header and two more opportunities as Sarri watched on in disappointment..
