On Saturday, Chelsea fell to a 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace right in Stamford Bridge but Antonio Conte believes it’s not enough reason to change anything, as the team is geared up for the visit of Manchester City.

The Chelsea boss was asked if the loss will prompt a change in the team’s tactics, and he said the loss doesn’t change a thing, although he’s wary of the threat of Manchester City’s attack.

“If you win or if you lose or draw, it doesn’t change our idea, our philosophy or our method,” the manager responded. “It is the same. We have watched the Palace game for the positive and the negative situations to try to improve for the next game.

“When you play against Man City, it is really important to have a good contribution without the ball, and you must pay great attention also when you attack because they have good players to counter-attack. We are talking about a great team with a great coach.”
