Chelsea played a 2-2 draw with Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday. The game was an end to end encounter, with Chelsea dominating for most stages, and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is still complaining about the penalty given to Eden Hazard in that game.

The 2-2 draw in the Premier League was widely regarded as one of the most entertaining games of the season so far, but Wenger is unsure which type of match will be played out in the first leg.

“I believe it can be again a very attractive game,” he said. “Football is so unpredictable, it can be a locked game. It can be crazy game or locked.

“Overall we gave too many chances away in the game (against Chelsea). But we were unlucky as well with the penalty. We were outstanding going forward.

“I believe we showed mental resources until the last minute to come back to 2-2.”

Conte was also asked in his press conference if he will be expecting another open game, to which he said: “For sure the last game was exciting. I don’t know. I think also tomorrow, the game will be very open, because I think both teams want to try to win, try to attack, and when you have two teams that do the same things, for sure you can have an exciting game.

“I hope for a good result, it’s the first game we’re playing at home, then we are away.

“We want to reach the final. But at the same time Arsenal wants to do the same.”
