"I knew before the game that the last 20 minutes could be hard for us because we have a big disadvantage with the schedule", Wenger said, referencing having to play on Sunday while Chelsea enjoyed a further day's rest. "Instead we are talking about a draw against a good team, but in this game we deserved to win as we created a lot of chances. 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. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger called the decision to award a penalty "farcical."

Speaking after the game Wenger said: "It was a great football game". Both had clear chances to score, but both fluffed their lines.

"For the striker, it's very important to score and in this case, your confidence can go down". We had so many chances in the first half.

The Arsenal man struggled to win his personal battle against the Chelsea defence and gave off the body language of a player who needs a break. At the other end Chelsea carved the hosts open only for Alvaro Morata and Cesc Fabregas to waste clear chances.

Replacing Diego Costa was also going to be tough, but, on the night his predecessor was marking his second Atletico Madrid debut with a goal, the Chelsea new No. 9 failed to deliver again.

"(I will contest the charge) 100 percent.

Alternatively, the former Barcelona forward may just have chose to go out on a high, potentially helping Arsenal win a trophy or qualify for the Champions League before he leaves.

Reports on Thursday claimed Hazard was set to escape the retrospective punishment which saw Manuel Lanzini and Oumar Niasse suspended for two games earlier this season, but Wenger, who is already risking a stadium ban, insists the Chelsea forward cheated.
