The Chelsea team looked a different side in the second-half of the game against Burnley. After a lethargic first 45 minutes that saw Chelsea bullied and outplayed by Sean Dyche’s men, the team looked entirely different in the second-half despite being a man down and even scored the second goal with two men down.
What was the reason behind Chelsea’s second-half improvement? What did Conte tell his players at half-time?
The Chelsea boss said after the game: “I told this, after this type of situation, red card after ten minutes, it is not ready to lose like this, I like to tell the truth, they understood.
“After the second half we totally changed the situation and we tried to react in the right way. We didn’t lose the balance and we tried to change the final result.”
Chelsea improved greatly in the second-half and the introduction of Alvaro Morata with 30 minutes left of play made the team stronger.
