Chelsea vs. Arsenal score: Bellerin scores late goal as 10-man Gunners earn point at Stamford Bridge

Arsenal came from behind twice, despite playing down a man, to draw Chelsea 2-2 on Tuesday in Premier League play. Two goals in the final 10 minutes (one from each side) led to a frantic finish, but the Gunners were efficient, scoring on both of their chances to rescue a point and keep their slim top-four hopes alive.

Here are three takeaways from the match:

It’s time for Arsenal to move on from Mustafi
The Gunners need to give up on defender Shkodran Mustafi. Sell him and cut your ties. Yes, the club spent around $40 million to get him from Valencia in 2016, but he’s more known for his errors than quality of play.

The World Cup winner gifted Chelsea the opening goal in what was a double blow to his side. Before the half-hour mark, he tried to play a ball back to goalkeeper Bernd Leno but instead fed Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham. The young Blues star got by Leno and was taken down by David Luiz, who was shown a red card. So one bad pass led to a penalty kick Chelsea would score and saw his teammate ejected.
