Wenger handed three-match touchline ban for referee rant

Arsenal conceded another late penalty against Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium as Eden Hazard went down following a challenge from Hector Bellerin.

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.

Wenger said: "It was a great game and we showed great mental resources". But Bellerin's late strike denied Chelsea their 11th win in 14 league games and earned Arsenal a deserved point.

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".

"I think it is a pity because when you have so many chances to score you must win the game", said Conte.

We will have to watch the replay to see what really happened.

TV schedule, time, game preview, live score
Oklahoma: The Sooners' defense has been an issue all season, but it did look for a while like it might make the decisive play. The game was the highest-scoring Rose Bowl , one point more than USC's 52-49 victory over Penn State in the 2017 Rose Bowl.

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

Arsenal started brightly, Alexis Sanchez hitting both posts with one effort and Alexandre Lacazette extending Thibaut Courtois with another.

The North London club, which drew the first blood via a Jack Wilshere goal in the 63rd minute, had to settle for a 2-2 draw with the visitors.

Chelsea quickly levelled from the spot and Alonso appeared to have completed a famous comeback six minutes from time when he beat Shkodran Mustafi to tap in a low David Zappacosta cross.

Morata should have given Chelsea a last-gasp victor but Cech saved his effort when he only had the goalkeeper to beat before Davide Zappacosta crashed a shot against the crossbar.

"Maybe I would have gone home and committed suicide", Wenger half-joked.
