Chelsea will host Arsenal on Sunday afternoon at Stamford Bridge, as both sides renew their derby rivalry in Match Day 5.

Arsenal defeated Chelsea in the FA Cup final last season as well as the Community Shield on penalties and in both fixtures, Chelsea ended the game with a man down.

Conte still remembers those games and hopes he doesn’t end Sunday’s clash with his team being a man down yet again.

He told the media: “I hope to finish the game with 11 players! In the last few games, the FA Cup and Community Shield, don’t forget we finished with ten men and I hope we don’t this time.”

When asked if he’s worried about discipline, Conte said: “For sure when you start the game you try to keep always the right discipline. In both situations you have to see very well if there was the red card or not.”
