Antonio Conte’s squad has been left thin due to injuries and suspensions ahead of our Premier League clash with Tottenham on Sunday but Conte doesn’t want to use Chelsea’s absent players as an excuse for any shortcomings in results.
Ahead of our derby match with Tottenham, Conte has told Chelsea fans he’s working hard with the players to ensure Chelsea have a good season.
“We are preparing for this game very well,” Conte said.
“We must be focused on the pitch, on the game and try to do our best against Tottenham and not find excuses, but only focus on the game.
“It can happen during a game to receive two red cards and I think a great club like Chelsea must be prepared for this situation.
“For sure at this moment it’s not simple, it’s not easy but we must be strong to face this situation. I repeat it’s very important not to find an excuse, about this moment. It’s important to continue to work, it’s important everyone gives 150 per cent, and then we can solve the situation.
“The only words I can tell our fans are these: for sure we are working very hard with the players to have a good season.”
