Conte defends tactics after Chelsea defeat

Conte defends tactics after Chelsea defeat

However, despite a great deal of criticism, Conte took exception to the former defender's comments, stating: "I think in this moment you have to accept every critic, but I am not so stupid to play against Manchester City open and to lose 3-0 or 4-0".

"What really matters is to be champions".

"I have never spoke with the players about records".

"Since we were together here with Sergio, the last month and a half, two months, is the best Sergio I have seen". "That's a pity. We could have played on for three hours, but I wouldn't touch the ball".

"He doesn't and I don't have any doubts about his ability to play in this team".

The Gunners lost their fourth successive game in all competitions to up the pressure on manager Arsene Wenger and all-but end their forlorn hopes of returning to the Champions League through their Premier League position.

"It's not good for us comparing with that team because that team dominate the last decade with different managers and different players". And after, the records will be a effect.

"You've absolutely nowhere to go because you can't pass out because they're better than you".

Guardiola celebrated wildly at the full-time whistle as he senses his first Premier League title is now a matter of weeks away. Of course, but not we are going to play for the records. "We need four victories to be champions, it is in our hands and if our behaviour is like today we will be champions".

We didn't concede one shot on target, we create enough chances to win, and I think we made an wonderful performance because (it) is against Chelsea, the last champion. Manchester City could wrap up the title, results going in City's favor, before the end of March.

Guardiola admitted he was surprised by how far ahead City are than their rivals. Who could believe it?

"I think it was wrong in the way they set their stall out and the way they played".

"We had the same desire as at Stamford Bridge and that is what pleases me the most".

In fact, Chelsea hardly ever ventured forward and maintained a good 20 yards of distance from the halfway line at all points when City were on the ball.

The Belgian ace eventually made way in the 89th minute after a frustrating outing, as the Blues slipped five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham in the race for the final UEFA Champions League spot.
