Conte disappointed by late goal

English Premier League

The Emirates Stadium played host to one of the most entertaining matches of the Premier League campaign so far, where the Blues came from behind to lead 2-1 with 92 minutes gone on the clock, only for Hector Bellerin to side-foot home the leveller.

The result left Chelsea third in the standings, one point behind second-placed Manchester United and a further 15 adrift of runaway leaders Manchester City, leaving Conte to rue his side’s late lapse.

“It was an exciting game for the people who watch, less so for us [Chelsea] because when you are winning 2-1 and there are two minutes to go, we have to win the game, especially against a great team like Arsenal,” Conte told his club’s official website.

“A 2-2 draw against Arsenal at Emirates could be a good result but after the game there is a lot of disappointment because we created important chances.

“For sure I know also in my players there is a lot of disappointment and for sure my feeling is the same as my players.

“It was a good performance and we played with good intensity, like Arsenal did and it was an exciting game, but at the same time we must be a bit disappointed with the final result because to get three points today was very important.”
