Sam Kerr saves a point for Chelsea at Arsenal after worrying crowd scenes outside the Emirates Stadium

Arsenal took the lead with a 57th-minute penalty from Kim Little, but Kerr headed an 89th-minute equalizer to ensure Chelsea stayed three points behind the Gunners at the top.

The crowd of 46,811 was the second largest in WSL history.

There were disturbing crowd scenes outside the Emirates Stadium and many fans only reached their seats after kick-off after huge queues.

Arsenal said in a statement: “Our match day operation was the same as all other matches and events at the Emirates Stadium.

“An early kick-off combined with a number of new fans at our stadium, coupled with the arrival of 50% of supporters in the last 20 minutes before kick-off, resulted in very busy turnstile areas.

“We will continue to advise supporters of early arrival at the stadium for necessary security and bag checks and will continue to discourage supporters from bringing necessary luggage and large bags.”
