LONDON (AP) -- Arsenal was held to a 0-0 draw by Chelsea in swirling rain Monday, missing a chance to return to the top of the Premier League.

The game between the London rivals at Emirates Stadium failed to produce the expected drama, with few attempts on goal.

Manager Arsene Wenger of Arsenal failed for the 10th time to get the better of counterpart Jose Mourinho. In Mourinho's two stints as Chelsea manager, Wenger has five draws and five losses.

Arsenal and Liverpool share the Premier League point lead, with Liverpool ahead on goal difference. Chelsea is fourth, two points out of first place.
