Antonio Conte

Chelsea boss Conte demands more of one thing from his team

More goals

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is a perfectionist – and it seems the manager will not rest until he thinks his team is perfect.

He claimed after their win over Leicester that while he was happy for the team and new forward Alvaro Morata, the fact that the club needed to score more goals was something that played heavily on his mind.

He noted that the player is improving and that he was pleased to see that – and Chelsea were in total control for the majority of the game.

Conte was speaking after the game, and the Express claim he said: “It is a good day for the team and a good day for Alvaro.

“It is always important for the striker to score.

“But for me it is very important to see that he is improving and he is more involved in our idea of football and for me that is the most important thing.

“Then if he scores, I am very happy and I am pleased for the player.

“We played very well, we were in total control and could have scored more goals. 

“After the penalty it changed the situation. They tried to push but despite this we had chances to improve the score. 

“It is a good result and a good performance.”

Title challengers

Chelsea will no doubt be there or there abouts when it comes to the title winners at the end of the season, and Conte has made it very clear he wants to see the club do far better this season than the last time they had a title to defend.

There was some concern over the lack of transfer activity this summer, but after a busy deadline day for the Blues – not to mention the fact that Chelsea will have plans for the winter transfer deadline, they look in a far better shape than many may have thought post Burnley.
