United was only leading through Antonio Valencia's 4th-minute strike when Rooney, the former United captain, was substituted in the 82nd minute.

English football has learned a lot about Antonio Conte via Arsenal, who the champions of England host at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

Arsenal played their Europa League tie on Thursday, giving Chelsea a potential advantage as they have been able to rest since their fixture on Tuesday.

"David Luiz, it looked excessive force to me, at what level did he catch (Arsenal defender Sead) Kolasinac? But in both situations you have to see very well if there was a red card or not".

"Overall I believe we have shown that many times".

Arsene Wenger: "I'm confident that away from home we will get the points we want, but certainly mentally for our team it is important to play well and get a positive result".

'We showed solidarity, that we can create chances against them - and on another day we might have nicked it'.

The Gunners had the better chances, the best when Alexandre Lacazette shot wide after Aaron Ramsey had hit the post, while Shkodran Mustafi had a goal ruled out correctly for offside.

Although the Gunners lacked time to make the most of its man advantage, they still made Chelsea settle for a goalless draw in the league for the first time since February 2016.

Instead, Conte referenced the Blues' previous two games against Arsenal - the Community Shield in August where Pedro was sent off, and the FA Cup final in May where Victor Moses saw red - and admitted the circumstance was "very unusual". Cahill's sending off paved the way for new signing Antonio Rudiger to establish himself alongside David Luiz and Cesar Azpilicueta and the Germany global will be hoping to keep his place in central defence.

We've got a spinning allrounder, we've got allrounders who take the pace off the ball so we've got a few different options". At present, team India is at the third position and Australia is at the second position in the ICC world rankings.

In six years, Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal charges have travelled to Stamford Bridge and have always come up short and without victory. For this reason, I decided to make a substitution in the second half.

Danny Welbeck has three goals in four Premier League appearances this season, after netting just two in 16 games last term.

Hector Bellerin surged down the right and crossed for Welbeck.

Conte said Chelsea must work on their disciplinary record, like other aspects of the game, and require more good fortune - in avoiding dismissals and in opponents being sent off.
