It’s the game of the season — Manchester City vs Chelsea. A lot could be said about the title race after today’s game.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has spoken about 2 players that could be key in today’s game — Diego Costa and Sergio Aguero. The two strikers are in form for their respective clubs, and Conte has hailed their different characteristics.

“Diego and Sergio Aguero are two fantastic players and two great finishers,” he praises.

“They have different characteristics but they are two great strikers and Diego is very important for us and Aguero for Man City.” Conte said of the duo.

“At the start of the season the questions were about Diego’s passion and will I be able to help him use this passion in the right way,” the Italian adds, concentrating on Costa alone.

“I always replied that Diego is a fantastic striker and I was sure that in this season he will be focused on the games and the team, and on improving himself and improving Chelsea, and I think this is happening.” Conte said.
