Antonio Conte Talks Thibaut Courtois and Willian Rumours in Pre-Swansea Presser

Antonio Conte Talks Thibaut Courtois and Willian Rumours in Pre-Swansea Presser

He responded by stating that all of his forwards could improve their finishing ability.

"He played every game, and played very well in every game, so I took this decision and it was important because when you give a new player this type of chance, in a big game, it shows the coach trusts all of his players".

"When he has more freedom to play as a second striker, he is very risky".

Antonio Conte has warned Chelsea they "must be worried" by Manchester City's spending power ahead of the January transfer window.

For now Conte said Chelsea's first target is to overtake Manchester United, who are second. "We started the season with a lot of problems", Conte said at his pre-match conference yesterday.

Kyle Bartley also adds to the club's defensive woes as he continues to remain on the sidelines following a knee ligament injury, with the Swans possibly looking to protect against damage limitation. "Football in Italy is very important and we have to face the bad situation and we have to find the right solution". At the same time, last season he played as a No.10 with Willian or Pedro and a striker.

Chelsea will be feeling confident about a positive result, as they have only been beaten once by Swansea in their 12 games in the Premier League, which happened at the Liberty Stadium in April 2016.

"The start of this season was full of trouble with Eden because he had an injury with the national team and we started the season without him", he told reporters.

The 30-year-old was subsequently made to train alone and then dropped for the game against Manchester United. We have just started this period and it will be important to rest players.

Explaining in more detail, the Italian said: "We are in November and now we have to fight with this squad and I want to repeat that I am very happy to work with these players and try to do our best [this season]". City in this season is a strong team, also last season, City was a fantastic team.

Chelsea will play Swansea City on Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge looking to stay in touch.
