On Sunday, Manchester United will face Manchester City at Old Trafford and Chelsea and the Blues manager Antonio Conte hope to narrow the gap with Pep Guardiola‘s side.
During his press conference ahead of Chelsea game vs West Ham, Conte tried to predict the result of the Manchester derby.
“It’s very difficult to see two defeats in a row for a great team, it’s very difficult,” – Conte said about Manchester City – “Usually, it’s very difficult to see two defeats in a great team from my experience, but at the same time, Manchester United can beat Manchester City. ‘It was better if Manchester City didn’t lose the game against Shakhtar for these stats. For sure I’ll watch the game, I love football, I love to watch this type of game,’ said Conte. ‘For sure it will be a big game, both teams are very strong, very good, maybe the best in this league, for this reason I think it’ll be right to watch this game.”
