Chelsea manager Antonio Conte blames tiredness for home defeat to Manchester City

Ian Wright: What I find frightening about Chelsea signing

I'm just happy for them.

The striker watched from the stands at the Wanda Metropolitano as Morata scored his seventh goal in eight games since his arrival from Real Madrid. After the game, Conte revealed why he made the decision to go for Willian and Hazard rather than using Batshuayi, who was subsequently only given 17 minutes at the end.

"I think our start wasn't so, so easy".

"When I see my players have given everything we must be pleased despite the bad result".

Hazard was in scintillating form as Chelsea became the first English team to win at Atletico in Wednesday's Champions League contest.

After Chelsea's win at Atletico, Conte said his side were being "penalised" by the proximity of the fixture with City, who beat Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday. Manchester City and United put five and four past them respectively and Chelsea will have to do similarly to show fans they can still match Manchester's might.

On his time in Germany, Christensen added: "I knew teams wanted me on loan, but that a two-year [arrangement] would be more appropriate for me". 'It's going to be a great game.


Chelsea have now completely recovered following a hard start to the season, but it's rarely been noted that they have been without their best player for this period.

Jose Mourinho naturally took the defeat badly and singled Eden Hazard out for criticism: "Eden is the kind of player that is not so mentally ready to look back to his left-back and to leave his life for him".

Conte said when asked about whether Aguero's absence has changed his preparations: 'No. "I think we have the points that we deserve".

"Every coach tries always every day to take more information, new ideas and then try to elaborate with your thoughts". Don't forget, this is the last game of seven games in 21 days, and a really tough and important game after Atletico Madrid.

Chelsea are top of the standings after back-to-back wins, two points clear of Roma, while Atleti have ground to make up in their pending double-header against Qarabag.

"The last few games Fabian Delph has played and he had an outstanding performance".
