Chelsea played a difficult game against Stoke City, and the Potters tried to upset Chelsea with long balls to target their tall forward Peter Crouch.
Speaking after the game, Conte analysed how difficult it was to win Stoke City with their long balls. He said: “You see your players are very good at adapting to different situations
“The Stoke game was different to the last one because they played long balls to [Peter] Crouch. For us it was very difficult to stop this situation, above all the second balls, and the free-kicks and corners to find him, but I’m pleased because I saw my players ready to face this situation. You have to fight every game to win, and the Stoke game was another great example of that.”
