Conte: Dominant Chelsea Should Have Beaten Swansea

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has lamented his club’s 2-2 away draw against Swansea in the Premier League on Sunday.

Diego Costa gave Chelsea a deserving lead in the first half.

Two quick goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson and Leroy Fer in the second half gave Swansea a shock 2-1 lead.

But with less than 10 minutes remaining, Costa equalised for Chelsea to end the game all square.

Commenting after the game, Conte said it was two massive points dropped by Chelsea.

“Chelsea deserved to win as we created many chances and were dominating, but went from 1-0 to 1-2 in two minutes,” Conte said in his ppst-match interview.

“It was a great reaction by my team after going behind but it is two points lost.”

Conte posited that the referee should have awarded a free-kick to Chelsea claiming Gary Cahill was fouled prior to Swansea’s second goal.

The Italian added: “We should do better than we did for Swansea first goal but that was a foul on Cahill for the second goal.

“It was a mistake by the referee for Swansea’s second goal but I’m not complaining as this can happen to both sides.”

The former Juventus boss said John Terry’s ankle will be examined ahead of next Friday’s clash against Liverpool.

He also praised Costa for his general conduct during the game.

“Terry’s ankle will be assessed tomorrow and I cannot say if he will make the Liverpool game.”

“Diego Costa showed fantastic behaviour to control himself as he took a lot of kicks during the game.”

  • what is Conte saying. he of all people should know better that referees have their own way of compensating for what they missed in their past or present refereeing. Costa has been having a lot of escape from red or yellow and the referees are always the fall guys. they don’t like this and so they make up or revenge when they have the opportunity to get their own back. SWANSEA vs CHELSEA match is one of them plus Costa’s past misdeeds and still be on the field of play to score a winning goal. No complain please coach and fans alike.
