Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is a happy man after the Blues came from behind to secure all 3 points against a difficult City side that are very hard to beat at the Etihad Stadium.
Speaking after the game, Conte revealed that he was excited with his players’ performance.
“It’s a big win and a big result against a really strong team,” Conte told Chelsea TV afterwards.
“With the quality of players in their squad I think it’s the most complete in this league. For this reason, I am pleased with the result, and with the players. They showed me great character.
“We were lucky at the start of the second half because there was one crossbar, and also a good save from Thibaut kept the result at 1-0,” Conte added.
“Then we found great strength to score the goal to draw, and then to score the second goal and the third goal.
“It’s fantastic this because I repeat, it’s not easy to come here and win this game. Now we have to continue.” Said the Italian.
