We Must Beat Tottenham - Conte

Chelsea are fifth on 56 points, five points behind Spurs who occupy the final UEFA Champions League qualifying spot. It's a known fact that managers interact at events, although they will perceive him as competition they are sure to give him pointers regarding the league. "I must be honest, if you want to win trophies, maybe for important managers, it's easier to go to another country - if you want to win easy trophies". Otherwise, we stay not so close and it will be difficult to get into the top four.

"But I think in this team there are many good players. We want to have patience with him and then to be sure before we bring him back to the first team".

Meanwhile, Chelsea have again been linked with Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld.

"Checks need to be made on Thibaut Courtois and Andreas Christensen to find out their physical condition and whether they can play on Sunday", the former Juventus manager added. Meanwhile, PSG is said to be the front-runners for Antonio Conte's signatures. "I consider Mauricio Pochettino a really good manager", said Conte.

England now boast players with this sort of ability, Zola said, adding: "I like [Marcus] Rashford a lot". The solution would be to play Cahill in the middle but we will try to recover Christensen. Stirred on by the transfer shenanigans of his first-choice striker who had his head turned around by a big-money offer from China during the last winter transfer window, Conte decided to wield his axe. For example, Emerson Palmieri. In these years, they grew a lot.

But Conte says the striker is fully over his injury as Chelsea prepare to face Spurs on Sunday. "I don't think this was the problem". But, at the same time, Tottenham are an important team for the whole team.

"This period for Alvaro was very important", Conte told Sky Sports. They are a footballing nation which is booming and they've boosted their youth systems and started to work on their coaches.
