It was an embarrassing 3-0 defeat for Chelsea in the hands of Roma at the Stadio Olimpico and the defeat means Chelsea are now second in the group.
Chelsea lacked spirit in the game and the team’s defensive woes killed the morale of the squad.
Conte was asked in his press conference, what will be the outcome if Chelsea plays like they did against Roma in the clash against Manchester United on Sunday.
Conte answered: “I don’t know what will happen on Sunday against Manchester United. I know very well, Manchester United are a really good team… For sure, we have to try to find the strength to understand and to use this loss in the right way.
“Because, as I said before, in this season we have to dig very deep, very deep, if we want to be competitive and to fight for something important.
“If we are not ready to dig deep, we can have this type of game. Yes. We have to know this. Because, I repeat, this season will be very difficult if we don’t understand quickly the right way that we have to go.”
