“All I Want Is To Beat Arsenal” – Antonio Conte Says

Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte says he
is still haunted by Chelsea’s 3-0 defeat to
Arsenal at the Emirate Stadium in
September.
The Italian boss insists the Premier League
title race is far from over even if his team
beats Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues head into Saturday’s clash nine
points clear of Tottenham and Arsenal at
the top of the table.
Chelsea have also won 15 of their last 17
Premier League matches since the defeat.
The former Italy coach says the Arsenal
defeat has never been far from his thoughts
over the past four months.

He told news conference, “This defeat
seems far [away], but it’s important to
remember the defeat against Arsenal
because it was a bad defeat, 3-0 after the
first half, and in my mind it’s always
present.
“Tomorrow this game will be very difficult
and I think it’s important to remember the
first game against Arsenal. I think a lot of
things have changed now. For sure, we are
a team [now].
“We want to have a good game tomorrow
against Arsenal and try to win. We play at
home and we have our fans to push [us] a
lot. For these reasons, we want to play a
good game, to win, but it will be a really
tough game and we must pay great
attention.”
Conte insists that the result of Arsenal’s last
Tuesday’s encounter against Watford result
is not a true reflection of the challenge his
team can expect to face at Stamford Bridge.
“Sometimes the final result doesn’t tell the
truth,” Conte said. “If you watch the game,
I think Arsenal were unlucky a lot. Watford
played a really good game, but Arsenal had
a lot of opportunities to score the goal,
draw and then win.
“It didn’t happen, but I think they are in
good shape, in good form, and that result
was a strange result.
“If we win the game, for sure, it’s a good
hit for us. To improve our own place in the
table, take three points and also to have
Arsenal 12 points [away], that’s very good.
But tomorrow, I’m sure, it will be a really
tough game and we must pay great
attention.
“Arsenal beat us already in the first game,
and they have the possibility to repeat this
in this game. For this reason, we must be
focused, stay in great concentration, and
have the same anger, the same will to fight
and try to win. It’s important. I like to
repeat to my players: look at yourselves,
not at others.”
