Blues boss pleased with draw
Chelsea's interim manager Roberto Di Matteo felt his side enjoyed the better chances in a disappointing goalless draw with Arsenal.
Both sides hit the woodwork, but the Blues' resolute defending ultimately decided the result, and Di Matteo is eager to take the positives ahead of a tricky trip to Barcelona in the Champions League. "Looking at the statistics, I think we had as many attempts and corners as they had," said the Italian. "I think they had a couple of chances from set plays, they didn't really create any clear-cut chances. I think we looked dangerous on the break many times, but we needed more quality at the end of the match to get the points." With three key games in a week, it was hardly surprising Chelsea made eight changes to the team which beat Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday, but Di Matteo denied his squad was fatigued. "It wasn't a question of resting, it was a question of selecting a team that could win the game against Arsenal," he said. "We've had so many games, it was a crazy schedule - it wasn't going to be possible to play the same players in every game."
