The Blues could have easily taken the victory in the first leg of the League Cup semi-finals, but they never materialized on their efforts.
Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte believes that the lack of precision when it comes to finishing has proven costly for his men, who could have comfortably won the goalless draw against the Gunners on Wednesday.
Even though the Blues created a number of good chances to take the lead, lack of concentration in front of the goal was once again the main issue for Chelsea. Andreas Christensen wasted two incredible opportunities to win the game for his team while Morata simply extended his drought to four games.
“We shot 20 times. We created chances to score, but we didn’t take them,” Conte stated, according to IndependentUK.
“I think in the last period we must be more clinical, better offensively. Otherwise, if you don’t score, if you’re lucky the game finishes in a draw.
“After Norwich, it’s the second 0-0 in a row. We have to reflect on this and try to improve during training sessions and try to improve in this situation.”
However, the Italian tactician believes that being able to create chances is the more difficult part of the game and that is why he is not worried about his offense.
“Honestly, I think you must be worried if you don’t create chances to score and it becomes very difficult to score. This team in every game creates chances to score. This season maybe we’re a bit unlucky. We’re not so good to take these chances. My speech is not for the strikers. For example, Christensen had two fantastic opportunities to score.”
