Alan Shearer doesn't hold back as he tears into Chelsea star after draw with Arsenal

Alan Shearer took aim at a Chelsea star after they failed to hold onto their two-goal lead against Arsenal on Saturday.

The Blues opened the scoring through a Cole Palmer penalty, with Mykhailo Mudryk doubling his side's lead just after the break following a David Raya blunder.

Arsenal fans inside Stamford Bridge made their feelings clear towards Raya.

But Chelsea allowed Arsenal to get back into the Premier League fixture as Robert Sanchez's mistake saw Declan Rice pull one back.

On Match of the Day, Shearer slammed Sanchez as he was critical of his error that led to Rice's goal and bemoaned his challenge on Gabriel Jesus.

The Spanish goalkeeper wiped out Jesus but no action was taken as the Newcastle United legend couldn't believe Arsenal weren't awarded a penalty and fumed at VAR.

"They should have (a penalty). There's no doubt about it," he said.

"Sanchez has just come out and he wipes him out, Jesus. What's key for me is that he catches him in the head.

Look, he goes right through him here. It's a terrible challenge.

"How on earth can the VAR not think that's a penalty and the referee? He is nowhere near the ball."

Shearer added: "They had to rely on a mistake from Sanchez. I mean, what on earth is he doing there? I haven't got a clue. Just clear it and get rid of it."

Arsenal remain unbeaten in the league this season following their late fightback. They have 21 points on the board and sit in second place.

As for Chelsea, they occupy 10th place and have 12 points to their name.
