Antonio Conte is concerned as Chelsea finish a second consecutive competitive game with 10 men after they lost to Arsenal in the Community Shield.

Antonio Conte has expressed his concern with Chelsea finishing a second consecutive competitive game with 10 men after they lost to Arsenal in the Community Shield.

The Blues had gone ahead through Victor Moses - who was sent off in the FA Cup final - before Pedro was dismissed with 10 minutes left of the encounter for a lunge on Mohamed Elneny.

From the resulting free kick, debutant Sead Kolasinac headed the Gunners level to take the match to penalties after 90 minutes.

The shootout - the first in English football to follow the ABBA format - saw Chelsea miss back-to-back penalties to allow Olivier Giroud to win the match from the spot.

Conte told BBC Sport after Sunday's game: "I didn't see the situation [with the sending-off].

"For me for this reason it is very difficult for me to say something about this decision. This is the second game, after the FA Cup, that we finish with 10 men.

"We are working, we are trying to do our best. 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."

Chelsea have lost their last four Community Shield matches, last winning the trophy on penalties in 2009.
