And Chelsea, who face Arsenal in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semifinal at Stamford Bridge next Wednesday, will fear that their title defence is as good as over, meaning the cup competitions offer them their best chance of success this season.

Wilshere sparked a frantic half hour when his rising left-footed drive beat Courtois at his near post in the 63rd minute. "Nothing will change and we have to deal with that", Wenger said. "What I find awful is we just saw a great game and we talk only about this and for me it would be nice if we think about football for a change", he said.

Speaking after the game, Wenger told Sky Sports of his disappointment at the decision: "After that, we got again a farcical decision and mentally we were shocked".

Speaking after the game Wenger said: "It was a great football game".

Asked about the performance of Alvaro Morata, who missed a number of chances, Conte added: "It is not luck in this period, he has to continue to work and continue to improve. He has to stay calm and continue to play this way, the goals are coming", Conte said.

A disbelieving Conte beat the turf in frustration, admitting the wasted chances cost third-placed Chelsea as they try to catch runaway leaders Manchester City. "We fight for a place in the Champions League", he said.
