September 2016 wasn’t a good month for Chelsea. The Blues drew 2-2 with Swansea, which followed two defeats in the hands of Liverpool and Arsenal.

Antonio Conte changed the team’s formation to a 3-4-3 system, and the rest they say is history. But the Italian has also revealed what he told the Chelsea players after those defeats.

“We had a moment when I told the players and underlined the negative situation,” he said. “After the Liverpool and Arsenal defeats, I said very clearly that we must show we are a great team on the pitch, not only because Chelsea is a great team, but you must show in every game, during the game, that you are a great team, not only because your name is Chelsea.

“After the two defeats a lot of things changed and now I can talk only of positive things and I hope this continues because it means that we are doing something important this season.”
