Antonio Conte explains why he’s not worried about his side’s lack of goals

conte we must be focused

Antonio Conte spoke after the Arsenal game about how his side had played, and it was put to him early on that for the second game in a row he was talking about missed chances and his side’s failure in front of goal.

When asked whether this meant he had concerns about his team’s goal-scoring ability, the Italian coach denied that that was the case.

His logic was that he would be worried if the team weren’t creating chances, and as long as they were doing that he was happy. He also claimed his side had been less lucky this season than last season.

It’s an excuse that doesn’t quite wash in reality. Not scoring chances is just as bad as not creating them, and you’d have to be crazy to not be a little worried by Chelsea’s attacking options when they play like they have in the last two games.
