Antonio Conte fuels exit rumours with Roma comments

Antonio Conte fuels exit rumours with Roma comments

Antonio Conte says everyone must pull together during a hard period if we are to have a successful season.

Having been frustrated in his attempts to add a second striker to his squad in the summer following the arrival of Alvaro Morata, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is already planning to bring in a new striker in January, according to Matt Law of the Telegraph.

"When there are injuries of this type, it's very hard for us".

'We must be unhappy after a defeat, above all if the defeat is not one but two in a row.

Asked how the mood was in the Blues camp following the defeat to the Eagles, he replied: "I've seen the team working very well in these last couple of days, they've recovered well and we hopefully will have a much better game tomorrow". I have players with a great will to work and fight.

Chelsea can take a step closer to the Champions League knockout stages by beating Roma at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday. For Moses, the first time. Kante, it's the first time.

"When you have a lot of games, you need to rotate players".

The emotional Italian is said to of accused his players of taking their foot off the gas against Palace. If this is not possible, I have to take risks.

'I think the best way now for us is to follow, to go game by game, and then to decide in every game which is the best formation, and whether sometimes to take risks or not about our players'. But if I hadn't put Morata in the starting XI, you'd have told me I'm insane.

Chelsea could be up against a second-string Roma side after star defender Kostas Manolas was forced off during Saturday's defeat to Napoli with a thigh strain.

Chelsea missed out to Tottenham for the signing of the experienced Fernando Llorente during the transfer window, while Michy Batshuayi is yet to impress Conte despite his last-minute victor at Atletico Madrid that left Chelsea on top of Group C with two wins from two games. This competition is very important for him and for the team.
