Conte discusses Chelsea's draw with Arsenal and Morata's misses

Saturday, 06 Jan, 2018

The Belgium worldwide fell under minimal contact from Hector Bellerin to earn Antonio Conte's side the spot kick which brought them level, just four minutes after Jack Wilshere's 63rd minute opener. "Because when you are winning 2-1 and there are two minutes to go you have to win the game, especially against a great team like Arsenal".

"We got again a farcical decision on the penalty, but we knew that (could happen) before the game".

Wenger is contesting the FA charge. "I maintain what I said in the press conference, 100%". You can listen to every interview and I stick to everything I said without any problem.

"It was non-stop football, running up and down", said Bellerin. I knew before the game that the last 20 minutes would be hard for us because we had a big disadvantage with the schedule.

He'll serve the first of his three match ban on Sunday.

With Swedish outfit Ostersund awaiting in the last 32 of the Europa League, that competition may now offer Arsene Wenger's team their best hope of a return to European football's premier competition next season. Jack Wilshere is at a level where not many people expected him to be. Since Euro 2016 he hasn't played for England.

"I would say everybody had given up on him".

Hector Bellerin fired in a late equalizer as Arsenal fought back to draw 2-2 with Chelsea at the Emirates on Wednesday night.

Arsene Wenger, Manager of Arsenal looks on prior to kick off during the Barclays Premier League match between Swansea City and Arsenal at Liberty Stadium on March 16, 2013 in Swansea, Wales.

Wenger now has until 6 p.m. on Tuesday to respond. "Sometimes we don't agree with them, but we must have great respect for the decision of the referee", he said.

Chelsea's failure to hold on for the win denied Antonio Conte's men the chance to climb above Manchester United.

The club didn't put their first formal offer on the table to Ozil's representative until December - a delay of nearly 10 months - while Wilshere has also yet to be offered a contract, despite Wenger claiming there is a difference in financial terms between club and player. "The goal is coming".

A disbelieving Conte beat the turf in frustration, admitting the wasted chances cost third-placed Chelsea as they try to catch runaway leaders Manchester City.

"We must be realistic".

Alternatively, the former Barcelona forward may just have chose to go out on a high, potentially helping Arsenal win a trophy or qualify for the Champions League before he leaves.
