Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was left fuming when Chelsea were awarded a penalty during Wednesday’s derby clash following a challenge between Hector Bellerin and Eden Hazard.
Wenger believes Hazard should have gotten a yellow card for diving as the Belgian scored Chelsea’s first goal from the spot in the thrilling 2-2 draw at the Emirates.
Antonio Conte has now hit back at Wenger, insisting it was Arsenal who benefited more from referee Anthony Taylor’s decision during the derby clash.
Conte said: “If Wenger watched the game again he would understand he was lucky in the game with the referee’s decisions.”
Jack Wilshere could easily have been sent off in the game and was fortunate not to have gotten a second yellow card after tumbling over just outside the box despite not being touched by Andreas Christensen.
