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.”
