Chelsea are set to face Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday and manager Antonio Conte, speaking at press conference in Cobham, claimed it will be a really tough game.
“I read with great attention the stats and Burnley have taken 28 points at home and one away, which means they have 29 points and 28 of them have been won at home – Conte said – They won their last five home matches and scored a lot at the end of games”.
“The stats show Burnley are really strong at home. They’re third in the table for home matches, we are first with 33 points, Tottenham are second with 32 and Burnley are third. We must pay great attention, they are in good form and want to beat us because we are top. We have prepared very well for the game and my players know what we will face”.
“This is the second time that we play them, I think Andre Gray is a really good player, he’s very clever and stays in the right position when they win second balls to attack the space in the defensive line”.
“They are a really good team, they play a lot of long balls and put pressure on you when you have the ball. – Conte added – It’s important to know the strengths and weaknesses of the opposition and we have studied them well. When you arrive after games against Liverpool and Arsenal it’s important to give continuity and try to win, but I know it won’t be easy”.
