Antonio Conte’s tactics against Manchester City have been the highlight in Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat to Pep Guardiola’s side.

Chelsea sat very deep in the game and couldn’t get a shot on target all game long and the Blues were only able to get 28 per cent possession of the ball.

Conte’s tactics have been heavily criticised by pundits after the game, but the Italian revealed the reasons for his decisions after the game.

When probed further on his tactics, Conte continued: “My tactics was to not concede space between the lines to Manchester City because if you concede space to City you risk losing to many goals.

“I think that when you have a lot of quality and also they have fantastic mentality, when they win the ball they are ready to run, they want to run, they want to press. They are a really strong team with great mentality and quality.”
