There was a little incident involving Antonio Conte and his assistant coach Angelo Alessio towards the end of the first half.

Conte who’s always passionate on the sidelines, has revealed exactly what happened between the two of them.

Conte said: “Angelo Alessio is a victim, always! During the corner I wanted to change some positions, because in the second corner Arsenal put six men [forward] and we lost a man on the edge of the box. It was very dangerous. I tried to shout to my players, and then I said to my assistant ‘try to send the message to change the situation.'”

“When the message didn’t arrive and after the corner we risked them scoring a goal, I thought to send a message.

“Angelo knows me very well, and my passion in this moment. It’s very important to keep the concentration, not only the players but the assistants and all the staff. We win and lose together.”
