Chelsea manager Antonio Conte spoke after the Blues’ away win against Watford at Vicarage Road today thanks to Michy Batshuayi‘s equalizer and Diego Costa‘s late goal.
He told BBC Sport: “I’m pleased for the substitutes that came off the bench. They showed great attitude and commitment with Cesc Fabregas and Michy Batshuayi making a real impact,”
“We all know Cesc’s quality, he’s a great player but it’s important to understand that we are at the beginning of the season and I am looking for the right balance.”
Match winner Diego Costa was shown yellow card again by referee Jon Moss and Conte claimed: “I don’t accept this because if every game people find something on Diego it is no good for Chelsea,”
“It’s better to focus on the game. For me, the first yellow is no good for me. I don’t accept the idea for a second yellow card for a dive but he does have to avoid the first.”
