Chelsea had to fight hard to win Hull City 2-0 at Stamford Bridge, and the game wasn’t in any way easy.

Antonio Conte admitted that it wasn’t Chelsea’s best performance, but he was happy with the 3 points all the same.

In his post match press conference, the Chelsea boss said: “This game wasn’t our best but I think that’s normal because we are in the second part of the season and the points are important for us and the other team.

“They were important for Hull because they are in the relegation zone. We faced a good team with good organisation. They changed their system to play against us.

“After this weekend you can see that when I say this league is very difficult and no game is easy, that’s the reality.

“A lot of our opponents dropped points. It’s not easy to play the last game of the weekend and know the results of the other teams. In different aspects there was pressure on us. We had to exploit this weekend and it’s not easy.”
