Chelsea’s goalless draw against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Sunday was our first goalless draw in the Premier League since February 2016.

It was also the fourth meeting between both sides since May.

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois revealed he would have preferred to concede and win the game 2-1.

“Clean sheets are always nice but not when you draw 0-0, I would have preferred to concede a goal and win 2-1,” Courtois said as quoted on Chelsea’s official website.

“It was a close game, both teams knew how the other played as we’ve played against each other a lot in the last few months. It was hard to find space and they put pressure on our defence very well. I tried to play out from the back sometimes in order to find space because playing only with long balls wasn’t going to help.

“I wouldn’t say we played a bad game. Arsenal played well tactically and pressed us. We had a couple of chances, especially the one when Pedro was one against one with Petr [Cech], but it was a good save from him.

“That might have changed the game because at 1-0 Arsenal would have had to come out a bit more and there would have been more space for us. In the end, the game continued in a close way.”
