Assistant Steve Bould will now be the leading presence on the touchline for Sunday's FA Cup third round tie against Championship side Nottingham Forest at the City Ground and the away leg of Arsenal's Carabao Cup semi-final meeting with Chelsea on Wednesday in addition to next weekend's top-flight trip to Bournemouth.

― Reuters picLONDON, Jan 4 ― Antonio Conte defended Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata after the Spaniard missed three one-on-one chances which cost his side victory over Arsenal in the Premier League yesterday. He is not lucky in this period.

"I think it's a pity because when you have a lot of chances to score, you must win the game", Conte told Sky Sports. He's very young, he has to continue to work, continue to improve.

"Petr (Cech) is a great goalkeeper, it is always hard to score against him but I put the ball in the net and that was the most important thing".

And Wenger was swift to raise the stakes again after the draw with top-four rivals Chelsea, saying the penalty count against Arsenal was "not coincidence".

The Spain worldwide looked to have made a costly error when he clipped the foot of Chelsea's Eden Hazard in the penalty area which allowed the Belgian to make it 1-1 from the penalty spot after Jack Wilshere had put Arsenal ahead on 63 minutes. There was still time for Chelsea substitute Davide Zappacosta to hit the crossbar but defeat would have been harsh on Arsenal which had 14 goal attempts to Chelsea's 19.

"To draw at the Emirates is a good result", added the Italian.
