Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is aware of next rival’s strength after losing against Slaven Bilic in the League Cup earlier in October.
The Italian manager told Chelsea’s official website: “This game against West Ham for us is very important. In the last game for sure they played their football very peacefully against us”.
“Maybe it can happen again the same against West Ham tonight – Conte added – But for this reason we are preparing for this kind of situation. It can be a really tough game”.
