Following the entertaining 2-2 draw at the Emirates both Bellerin and Hazard spoke to Sky Sports reporter Geoff Shreeves, who asked about the penalty decision, and Hazard's response was simply brilliant.

Jack Wilshere had given the Gunners the lead, yet three minutes later Eden Hazard won a spot-kick after falling to ground following a lunge from home defender Hector Bellerin in the box.

Wenger said: "What I find bad is that we have just seen a great football game and we talk only about things nothing to do with football".

Alvaro Morata had the game's first big chance on 15 minutes after the Arsenal defence was caught flat from Moses' hoofed pass but the Spanish striker failed to beat Petr Cech one-on-one.

A point that sends back Arsenal onto the sixth place and further away for the top 4 Champions League spots.

There was more drama seconds from the end when Zappacosta's shot thundered off Cech's crossbar.It was error-strewn and exhilarating end to a back-breaking festive period for both sides.

Wenger said he would "100%" contest that charge, adding: "You can listen to every interview I said".

A minute later Lacazette nearly doubled the lead but his shot inside the box was saved by Courtois. 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.

Alvaro Morata, strangely profligate all night, wasted a great chance early on for Chelsea when he took advantage of a yawning chasm in the Arsenal defense to go through on goal but his sidefoot finish was awful.

However, it was the unlikely sources of Wilshere and Bellerin - with just two goals between them in all competitions this season at kick-off - who managed to find a way past Courtois.

"Games are spoiled by factors you cannot determine - we can only continue to play the way we want to play and hope things go for us".

"I have been in football for 35 years, I know what I said and I stand up for what I said".

The Frenchman received a four-match ban for misconduct last January for pushing the fourth official after his team's 2-1 win against Burnley.

Conte feels Morata is short of luck and rued the failure to see out victory after Alonso's 84th-minute strike put the visitors ahead.
