With the game at 1-1, Diego Costa failed to score from the penalty spot after Chelsea were awarded a penalty for a Matip tackle on Costa in the box.

After the 1-1 draw against Liverpool last night, Conte was asked if he was frustrated Chelsea didn’t win after Costa’s saved penalty or pleased Arsenal and Tottenham failed to win.

“Half and half,” Conte responded.

“I am pleased with the performance of my players. It’s not an easy moment to play Liverpool after three defeats.

“It’s not easy to play in this atmosphere at Anfield too and for this reason, I am proud of my players for the personality they showed me tonight.

“This game was incredible, very tough, great intensity, a lot of pressure from both sides and for this reason there were a lot of mistake.

“When there are these types of games with high intensity, it’s very difficult to see the mistakes and to try to make the correction, but I think we played a really good game.

“It wasn’t easy to play with the same intensity as Liverpool and to also have different chances to win the game. We must be pleased.

“It’s a good point to sure. When you have a great chance, a penalty at 76 minutes, for sure you think you could win and take three points.

“Diego kicked very well and Mignolet made a great save. Also, after this situation, we had two chances to score the second goal but it didn’t happen.

“Now it’s important to recover very well because we used a lot of energy.”
