Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino thinks Antonio Conte is now experiencing the problems of trying to mount challenges for both the Premier League and Champions League.

Chelsea ran away with the Premier League title last season without playing in Europe, and Pochettino believes it will be a difficult situation for the Blues boss this season.

“Of course, now he’s feeling the same as we felt last season when you are a contender and competing in Europe – the Champions League and Europa League are the same, always it’s complicated,” Pochettino said.

“I think if you take the Europa League like Arsenal when you’re always rotating the team and playing with a different team in the Premier League then maybe you can arrive fresh and be a contender in the Premier League.

“If you want to win the Europa League and the Premier League or the Champions League and the Premier League, you need to be right how you rotate and manage your squad.”
