Antonio Conte defended Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata after the Spaniard missed three one-on-one chances which cost his side victory over Arsenal in the Premier League on Wednesday. The game ended in a 2-2 draw, with the Gunners getting a stoppage-time equaliser.

"It is not a lucky period for him", Conte told a news conference. Nothing has changed. I've been in England for 21 years and I've tried to serve this game with honesty, integrity and when I have something to say, I say it.

In a statement, the FA said: "The FA has requested observations from Arsene Wenger for media comments he made on Tuesday [02/01/18] and after last night's Arsenal versus Chelsea match [03/01/18]".

"Petr (Cech) is a great goalkeeper, it is always hard to score against him but I put the ball in the net and that was the most important thing". He's very young, he has to continue to work, continue to improve.

Her comments came after days of widespread Iranian protests, which started in response to the country's economic conditions. We must not be silent. "We don't think we need a Band-Aid, and we don't think we need to smile and take a picture".


But, although this was a 90 minutes of high entertainment, with both teams creating enough chances to win handsomely, the draw does little for the respective ambitions of the two clubs.

"This game was exciting for people who watched, less for us", said Blues manager Conte, who has won just once in six games against Arsenal. We had so many chances in the first half.

"My disappointment is the same as my players. We win together, we lose together, we draw together". But Bellerin's late strike denied Chelsea their 11th win in 14 league games and earned Arsenal a deserved point.

The new season appeared to be shaping up into a two-horse race between the Manchester clubs, but as Manchester United started to stutter in the autumn, Manchester City just kept on going, and an 18-match winning streak means they have nearly wrapped up the 2017/18 title already.
