Despite the flurry of chances created in Sunday’s London derby involving Chelsea and Arsenal, the game ended in a stalemate.
The Blues ended the game with a man less after David Luis was given a red card
Aaron Ramsey dribbled into the Chelsea penalty area, sneaking between Cesar Azpilicueta and David Luiz, and after the Welshman’s shot came back off the post an off-balance Lacazette contrived to hook the ball over the bar from five yards out.
Earlier, Danny Welbeck and Pedro had good chances to score.
Arsenal striker Welbeck headed wide from close range after being found by Hector Bellerin’s right-wing cross.
Bellerin was soon causing problems for Chelsea again, this time by getting in behind Marcos Alonso and pulling the ball back for Lacazette, whose first-time effort was kept out by Thibaut Courtois.
Keeper Courtois was then called into action again, this time to hold a firmly-struck shot from Sead Kolasinac.
At the other end, Pedro was denied by Arsenal’s former Chelsea keeper Petr Cech after being put through by Cesc Fabregas’ pass.
The visitors threatened again just after the half-hour mark when Grant Xhaka sent a 30-yard shot narrowly wide.
And they would have taken the lead had Lacazette been able to find the target after Ramsey’s effort had struck the woodwork.
