Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta says his players are disappointed despite rescuing a point from their game against Chelsea in the Premier League

The Gunners remain unbeaten but had to do it the hard way, having to come back from two goals down to draw after Chelsea had raced to a 2-0 lead in the game. 

The point behind Arsenal at least maintains their unbeaten start to the season and also remains without a defeat away at Chelsea since 2018. 

The Arsenal boss says what excites him about the game was how quiet his players were after the draw, signalling their disappointment

He told reporters: "The way the team reacted was phenomenal. What I liked was the dressing room was quiet despite drawing when 2-0 down."

The Chelsea boss also said it was impossible for Saliba to jump with his hands in his pocket in dispute to the penalty that allowed Chelsea to take the lead. 

He added: "Mechanically impossible to not jump like that in that situation." 

Chelsea have now won three, drawn three and lost three of their first nine league games and sit 10th in the league.

The team showed so many good things and would be disappointed that they did not see out what would have been a significant win. 

But impressively Mauricio Pochettino has never lost a home league game against Arsenal and walks away from that game with another draw.
