EPL: Conte Disappointed As Chelsea, Swansea Play 2-2
Chelsea on Sunday evening dropped their first points of the English Premier League season as Diego Costa struck twice to rescue a draw at Swansea City.
Costa capitalised on woeful Swansea defending to fire the dominant visitors into a 1-nil half-time lead.
But Gylfi Sigurdsson’s penalty and Leroy Fer’s bundled goal two minutes later turned the game on its head.
Costa scored an acrobatic late second to salvage a point for Antonio Conte’s team, who stay second in the table.
In spite of the heroic fightback however, Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, saw the result more like two points lost, rather than a point gained.
“It is difficult to talk about the game because I think today we lost two points.
“We were dominant in the game, were leading 1-0 and we created a lot of chances to score the second and third goal. Just in two minutes the match changed.
“I am disappointed because, when you have the opportunity to kill the game, you must kill the game but then, this is the English league,” he said.
