Thibaut Courtois claims current Chelsea boss Antonio Conte places greater emphasis on tactics than former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.

Appearing on Belgian television show La Tribune on Monday evening, Courtois was asked to pick the manager that spent the most time on tactics.

Courtois suggests: “Conte is the one that works most tactically. Then there is Simeone, then Mourinho and finally Wilmots.”

He added: “We started the season 4-3-3. We started well with three wins but then we drew 2-2 at Swansea and lost against Liverpool playing a bad game. That was also the case against Arsenal.

“Then Conte said, ‘we will change’. At Hull, things were rather mixed at first and then against Leicester, Manchester United, Southampton and especially against Everton, we really saw the quality of the team.”
