If Wednesday’s game was any indication, the two upcoming League Cup semifinal legs between Chelsea and Arsenal are going to be rather scintillating affairs. For the neutral viewer, that is. Probably not for any fans or coaches however.

It did look like Chelsea would come from behind to win 2-1 at the Emirates, but Hector Bellerin, who gave away the penalty for Chelsea’s equalizer, equalized for the hosts in added-on time. The match never quite settled down into either side exerting control, so it was always going to be a crapshoot whether Chelsea would be able to hang on. Unfortunately we did not, though Conte was quick to deflect any thoughts of anger into thoughts of disappointment instead.

A good performance and plenty of chances created, but without the matching reward. Alvaro Morata unfortunately continued his poor run of form, which unlike against Stoke, actually mattered today.

But Conte, as he’s wont to do, quickly put a positive spin on Morata’s continuing foibles, too.

Finishing can be streaky for even the best strikers, so hopefully Morata quickly finds his form once again.

Onto the next one!
