Antonio Conte led Chelsea to the Premier League title in his first season in England as the Blues won 13 consecutive games in the process.

However, it’s a different ball game this season for the Blues with Antonio Conte’s side outside of the top four at the moment.

One thing Conte has always emphasised on is work, and European football expert Gabriele Marcotti who says the Italian has a reputation for working his players hard, could have overworked the Chelsea players.

When asked how Conte is remembered from his time managing in Turin, Marcotti replied: “He’s remembered, pretty much as he will be at Chelsea, somebody who’s hugely intense, who gets the fans on his side, who wins things, who tactically will throw people a curve-ball or a googly.

“But by the same token he wears his players out, I think maybe more so at Juve than Chelsea, because they had an older squad.

“And also somebody who at Juventus spent the better part of the last two years saying, ‘We need to spend more’, saying if it’s a 100-euro restaurant you can’t go in there with 10 euros in your pocket, and ultimately that grates on clubs.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
