Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, who spent several experiences with current Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, admitted he’s not surprised that the Blues are leaders of the Premier League after 15 games.

“It doesn’t surprise me at all that Chelsea are top of the Premier League – Buffon told Fox Sports Conte is a winner, he doesn’t do second place,”

“I am sure behind the scenes he has privately been getting players into line” he added.

“They have a great chance in the league. Not only do they have one of the best coaches in Europe – but not competing in Europe they have a week between games which is going to help them a lot as the season goes on.”

The Italian goalkeeper won three Serie A titles in a row under Conte, who then became head coach of Italian National Team in 2014.
