Chelsea have a tough Sunday fixture away at Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. Pep Guardiola’s men have been the high flyers of the league this season as City have only lost one league game so far.

Antonio Conte has admitted that with the right tactical plan both offensively and defensively, Chelsea can carry the day at the Etihad on Sunday.

“When you play against this type of team, who are very strong, you must have a tactical plan in your mind to stop them, otherwise you risk losing in a bad way,” Conte said in his press conference at Cobham today.

“It’s very difficult but at the same time we have to try to find if there are weaknesses in their team and work on exploiting them. It’s not simple to find them in this team but we have to try to find the best way to play this game against them.

“The most important thing in every game is to have a tactical plan offensively and defensively, you must be focused on your team. It will be very important for us not to lose that balance. In my mind, if we want to win we must have great balance in every moment of the game.”
