Antonio Conte was left disappointed by referee Bobby Madley’s decision to book Willian for simulation in the penalty area, as Chelsea lost the Community Shield to London rivals Arsenal.
Sead Kolasinac’s 82nd minute goal tied the game, after Victor Moses had given Chelsea the lead just after half-time.
Rather than extra time, the match would go straight to penalties, and it was Olivier Giroud who scored the winning penalty, after Thibaut Courtois and Alvaro Morata had missed for Chelsea.
Conte will have been left frustrated by Madley on another occasion, after he sent Pedro off on 80 minutes.
“We had a tough pre-season, between the six days until we start the league it is important to be focused on the next game.”
