, Chelsea vs Arsenal stopped for incident in crowd with fans signalling for doctor

CHELSEA vs ARSENAL was stopped during the second half as fans called for medical assistance.

Club medics were signalled over to the stand with referee Michael Oliver stopping play, possibly because a fan required help.

Players from both teams gathered in the technical area and used the opportunity to have a drink and take in tactics.

The issue appeared to come from the Matthew Harding Stand behind one of the goals and was dealt with in a matter of minutes.

Fans around the ground responded by applauding the medics, though no announcement was made.

Arsenal responded the better of the two sides after the restart and were in front moments later.

A Bukayo Saka corner appeared to be swinging in when Gabriel touched it in on the line to give the Gunners a 1-0 lead.

Mikel Arteta’s side continued their pressure after that goal and Graham Potter responded by bringing on Armando Broja for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who made just eight touches.

But he still had an effect on the match with one bad challenge on Ben White provoking a big reaction out of Arteta.

With 27 minutes on the clock, the new Chelsea No9 went sliding in on White right in front of the away dugout.

And Arteta made no attempt to hide his feelings with an angry reaction to the referee and fourth official.

Aubemayang was rightly booked for the challenge and could have no complaints.

But Arteta’s response suggested he wanted more – while midfielder Granit Xhaka also berated Michael Oliver when he awarded the free-kick.

And the Arsenal supporters in the away end at Stamford Bridge joined in the treatment of Aubameyang.

They were booing his every touch before the incident and then starting chanting at the cautioned striker: “Mikel Arteta, he thinks that you’re s***!”
