Chelsea boss Antonio Conte regrets missing the chance to get three points at Anfield, but the Blues manager is happy anyway since his team maintained a huge gap on the chasers after both Tottenham and Arsenal dropped points tonight, with a draw and a defeat:
“I think at the end of the match we could have won. It was a very tough game, both games tried to play with intensity. I’m pleased. We saw a different game to when we played Liverpool and lost at home,” Conte told BT Sport after the game with Liverpool.
“It’s a pity Diego Costa missed the penalty because he played very well. We had different chances to score goals, but we must be happy with the result and the performance because it is not easy to play away at Liverpool.
“The best thing is to see ourselves, not the others. We stay top of the table and that is a great achievement but it is important to focus on ourselves.
“There are 15 games remaining and 45 points. It’s important to draw against a really good team and now we must focus on playing Arsenal next week.”
