Antonio Conte has spoken about Chelsea’s win over Watford today to continue his 100% start to life as the Blues boss.
Late goals from Michy Batshuayi and Diego Costa ensured Chelsea came from behind to beat Watfrod 2-1 at Vicarage Road on Saturday.
Speaking after the game, Conte praised his team’s commitment as they followed their opening day win over West Ham with another win.
“It was the same against West Ham,” Conte was quoted on Chelsea’s official website.
“It’s normal because when you push during the game for 70 minutes, usually the opposition pays for their effort.
“Usually when new players come on during the game it happens that there is a great impact. I’m pleased for Moses, for Cesc, for Batshuayi because their impact was very good. It’s important for me, this. It shows the great spirit of the team, the right attitude, the right commitment.
“I understand when you don’t start the game usually you aren’t happy. The manager must choose the starting XI and then try to find the right solution during the game. We saw this in these two games.
“I repeat: I’m happy for the commitment and attitude of the players. It shows a good family, a good team.”
