There were also some very shaky displays, especially defensively.
Here are marks out of 10 for the players who contributed to a cracking encounter.
Petr Cech - 8 - Made two fines saves from Hazard and Alonso early in the second half.
Callum Chambers - 5 - Bad mistake early on let in Morata. Shaky display overall.
Shkodran Mustafi - 6 - Decent enough defensively and tried to start attacks by pushing into midfield.
Rob Holding - 6 - Steady enough but struggled to contain the runs of Morata and Hazard.
Hector Bellerin - 6 - Silly challenge for the penalty kick, even if it was harsh, but somewhat redeemed himself with a fine half volley in stoppage time.
Granit Xhaka - 6 - Did his job breaking up the play but failed to provide an adequate shield for the back four in the second half.
Jack Wilshere - 7 - Scored his goal, crunched into a tackle with Cesc Fabregas and probably should have been given a second yellow for diving. A mixed night for the Englishman but his best form is returning.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles - 7 - The youngster playing out of position at left wing-back excelled. Composed on the ball, solid defensively and provided a threat going forward.
Mesut Ozil - 8 - Simply sublime on the ball at times and was the creative hub of an impressive attacking display from Arsenal.
Alexis Sanchez - 7 - Went close with his shot that Courtois tipped onto both posts and drifted around the attacking line looking for the ball.
Alexandre Lacazette - 7 - Didn’t get a goal but was tireless up front and his link-up play with Ozil and Sanchez is underrated.
Danny Welbeck (on for Lacazette, ’80) - 5 - Struggled to get into the game and wasted a few good crossing opportunities.
Theo Walcott (on for Chambers, 88') - 5 - No real impact but did help Arsenal salvage a draw by being around the box during the equalizer.
Thibaut Courtois - 8 - Superb stops to keep Chelsea in the game, the Belgian used his full size to tip a Sanchez shot onto the post, then smother other efforts. A fine display.
Cesar Azpilicueta - 6 - Solid as ever defensively but was shackled by Arsenal and couldn’t whip in any of his now trademark crosses from center back.
Andreas Christensen - 7 - The young Danish defender had a telling interception at a crucial moment early on and was Chelsea’s best defender.
Gary Cahill - 6 - Solid display at center back but did struggle to contain Ozil, Sanchez and Lacazette, as most defenders do.
Victor Moses - 5 - Subbed off in second half and a very poor display. Offered nothing in attack.
N’Golo Kante - 7 - One fine tackle to set up a big chance for Fabregas but steady in central midfield as ever.
Tiemoue Bakayoko - 5 - Poor display defensively and Arsenal ran rings around him.
Marcos Alonso - 7 - A constant threat in attack and a fine finish for his goal to make it 2-1. What a signing he has been.
Cesc Fabregas - 7 - Lovely passes and flicks to get Chelsea back into the game. Subbed off in second half and applauded by most of the home fans. Nice to see.
Eden Hazard - 8 - Won the penalty kick somewhat controversially but tucked it away. Some superb touches throughout.
Alvaro Morata - 5 - Should have had a hat trick. Missed three glorious chances when one-on-one with Cech. Poor.
Davide Zappacosta (on for Moses, ’56) - 7 - Great cross for Alonso’s goal and smashed a shot against the bar right at the death. Lively.
Danny Drinkwater (on for Fabregas, 71') - 5 - His job was to help shore up the Chelsea midfield but Arsenal kept pouring forward.
Willian (on for Hazard, 82') - 6 - Lovely ball to Zappacosta to help set up the Alonso goal and dangerous in his brief cameo.
