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

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte thinks his side should be “disappointed” to only get a point from their 2-2 draw against Arsenal on Wednesday night.

Marcus Alonso had put the Blues ahead with only six minutes remaining – after earlier goals from Jack Wilshere and Eden Hazard had the scores level – but Hector Bellerin struck in stoppage-time to earn a share of the spoils for the Gunners.

And Conte reckons that, despite having to accept the result, he can’t help but think his side deserved more from the match.

“I think it is a pity because when you have so many chances to score you must win the game,” said Conte. “Instead we are talking about a draw against a good team, but in this game we deserved to win as we created a lot of chances.

“We must be disappointed, we had a great chance to win, but we must accept the final result. We win together, we lose together, we draw together.”

Asked about the performance of Alvaro Morata, who missed a number of chances, Conte added: “It is not luck in this period, he has to continue to work and continue to improve.

“For a striker it is very important to score, it is a pity, he had many chances to score, but I’m very happy with his commitment and effort for the team.”
