Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was proud of the character the Blues showed in the 2-1 victory over Tottenham at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
Conte revealed after the game that Chelsea’s performance against Tottenham showed Chelsea are champions.
“Don’t forget today we had four new players if you compare last season,” Conte said.
“When you change two players in three in defence, with Luiz and Cahill, to replace with a young player like Christensen and Rudiger it was the second appearance, it is not easy.
“Despite this we showed a great desire to stay compact, don’t lose the balance and to show also to be the champions, it was very important this.”
