Today Chelsea‘s manager Antonio Conte spoke to the media at Cobham ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash at Old Trafford vs Manchester United.
The Italian is aware of the importance of the game and he said his team will do everything they could to win.
“We have to look at ourselves and understand that from now until the end of the season every game is very important,” Conte said. “To get three points will be important for ourselves and United. The fight for the Champions League is open, there are many great teams and someone has to miss out. This is not a simple game, especially when you play at Old Trafford, but at the same time after playing Barcelona this test will be very important for us, to see our reaction and approach in a difficult atmosphere. You have to start the game with only one target in your mind, to try to get three points. This is very important for the mentality. If you have a winning mentality you try to reach only one result, to win. During the game a lot of situations can happen. If you draw against United it could be a good result but only after you’ve played to try to win. Last season we lost the game so we must pay great attention. They have a lot of fantastic players, their team is also very physical. We must pay great attention because when you play against United anything can happen. It’s a massive game for us and we have to put 120 per cent of our strength into it, we want to try to get three points, it will be difficult but we must try.”
