Antonio Conte has apologised for getting sent off against Swansea.
The Blues dominated against Swansea but failed to put the Premier League strugglers away.
In the end, Antonio Rudder’s second-half goal proved enough to earn Chelsea a valuable three points.
N’Golo Kante’s effort was deflected into the path of the defender who headed home.
Tensions boiled over during the game, with Conte being shown a red card in the first half for screaming at the fourth official.
And the Blues boss has apologised for his actions during the Stamford Bridge clash, claiming he became frustrated with Swansea time wasting.
“I think it is right to apologise for what happened during the game,” Conte said after the clash.
“In the first half, I saw that Swansea was wasting time. I said this a few times to the fourth official, but I didn’t see anything change.
“I was frustrated for this situation. I tried to tell again and the referee reacted to this situation.
“For this, I apologise, for sure I made a mistake but I suffer during the game. I suffer with my players, it is a pity.
“I suffered in the same way, also in the changing room, also on the video. I didn’t have the possibility to communicate with my players, it was very strange.”
Chelsea are back in action on Saturday when the Blues host Newcastle in the early kick-off.
