Chelsea had two tough fixtures to play in the last two Premier League games, and the Blues gained 4 points from those two games – drew Liverpool away from home and beat Arsenal at home.

This weekend, it’ll be a different fixture, as the Blues will play against Burnley away from home.

Speaking about the game, Conte said: “When you have the type of game like against Liverpool or Arsenal, the tension is already high. Those moments you must cut a bit of the pressure on the players. This type of game it is not necessary to increase the tension.

“But sometimes it can happen during the week when the intensity is not high. You try to increase the intensity and tension and try to warn about the danger of the game, warn to pay attention because on the Saturday or the Sunday we risk a lot if we don’t have this concentration and this intensity.

“It is always important to have this type of relationship with the players. When I was a footballer, for me it was always important to hear my coach warn me and my team to pay attention, to be focused and ready to fight because if we go and we are relaxed, we risk losing.”
