Chelsea 0 Arsenal 0 - Views from the Bench

In what was an entertaining game that lacked goals, the spoils were shared at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

After the final whistle, both managers spoke to the media.

First up, this is what Antonio Conte had to say about the game:

'It was a good, open game with both teams trying to win.

'Every game against Arsenal is always very tough, we knew very well what type of game to face. Both teams are great teams, it's a good draw.

'David Luiz, you know very well that I don't like to comment about the referee. I don't do it in the past, or the present. You need to see what happened before the tackle.

'We have great respect for officials, but it is strange to finish a third game in a row against Arsenal with 10 men.'

It is, very strange, first Moses (FA Cup), then Pedro (Community Shield) and now David Luiz (Premier League).

As for Arsene Wenger, the Frenchman had this to say,

'It was about mentality and a response from our last away game. We could have won it. It was an intense game.

'The battle was total. We are not in a transfer period and on the day we played Liverpool that affected us. We are all human beings.

'If you play 55 games a season you can have a bad performance.

'But we were focused and determined. We tried to play when we had the ball and we were close to winning the game. With a bit more freedom we would have won the game.

'David Luiz, it looked excessive force to me, at what level did he catch Kolasinac? I don't know.'

I`m surprised Wenger saw the incident, or is it only incidents involving his own players he tends not to see?
