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

06 January 2018

Wing-back Hector Bellerin conjured a 92nd-minute equaliser after the visitors had responded to midfielder Jack Wilshere's opener with goals from forward Eden Hazard and wide man Marcos Alonso.

Three days later against Chelsea, another contentious spot-kick decision potentially cost Arsenal victory as Eden Hazard was adjudged to have been taken down inside the box, leading Wenger to suggest that there is a conspiracy against his side.

Wenger said: "It was a great game and we showed great mental resources".

"We must be disappointed, me and the players".

Speaking after the game, Wenger told Sky Sports of his disappointment at the decision: "After that, we got again a farcical decision and mentally we were shocked".

He said before the game against Chelsea: "I must say what is more frustrating for me is that it happened many times this season - at Stoke, at Watford, at Manchester City, at West Brom".

And, with Arsenal having endured a poor few months - including missing out on Champions League qualification for the first time under Arsene Wenger - it is the Blues, Spurs, City, United and the Reds who are represented in the team of the year - according to fans. At the other end Chelsea carved the hosts open only for Alvaro Morata and Cesc Fabregas to waste clear chances.

Morata should have given Chelsea a last-gasp victor but Cech saved his effort when he only had the goalkeeper to beat before Davide Zappacosta crashed a shot against the crossbar.

"Maybe I would have gone home and committed suicide", Wenger half-joked.
