Conte blames bad luck for dismal Morata display at Arsenal

After some fine work from Davide Zappacosta down the right-hand-side, Alonso made a clever run across the Arsenal back-line and found himself a yard of space to fire past the helpless Petr Cech and into the back of the net.

Alvaro Morata had a night to forget as he missed three clear chances in Chelsea's thrilling 2-2 draw at Arsenal.

A highly entertaining encounter saw the London heavyweights bag a point each but the story could've been a lot different had the 25-year-old been more clinical in front of goal.

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte has said he never makes any "major demands" about signings because he has always worked for clubs limited in the market by "economic sacrifices".

He added: "Chelsea are an efficient team".

Eden Hazard scored from the penalty spot to level at the game at 1-1, before Hector Bellerin equalised in stoppage time after Marcos Alonso had given Chelsea a late lead. We had a good chance to win because we deserved to win. A solid team. Not as solid as I thought. "It was a good performance with good intensity". "I think Chelsea should win this game because of the chances we missed".

"Morata was easily Arsenal's best defender today, sweeping up Chelsea's throughballs (sic) and harmlessly booting it out of danger", one Tweet humorously explained.

In one of the most freakish transfer stories in recent memory, Chelsea have targeted Andy Carroll as a potential signing in the January transfer window.

But the tweet of the Day came from Premier League statisticians WhoScored.com, who noted that the striker had set a new record for the 2017/18 season, albeit an unwanted one.

"In this case, it's a pity because he had many chances to score".
