Chelsea boss Antonio Conte admitted his side was a little lucky to get three points against Southampton today: despite having the control for a large part of the game the Blues risked to conceed the equaliser in the last minutes of the clash:
“When you do not score the second goal, you have to suffer,” Conte told Sky Sports News afterwards.
“You are afraid at every corner and free kick and the opponent has the chance to draw. We dominated the game, shooting 24 times, hitting the post and we needed to score the second goal to be relaxed.
“We had a lot of chances but the goalkeeper Fraser Forster was good. We have to be happy with the performance and the clean sheet.
“If you shoot only twice and score two goals, you must be worried. We had lots of shots but we must be more accurate in our finishing.
“In the last 10 games, we have won eight, drawn one and lost one. This is our run, you have to consider last 10 games, not just two. It shows we are doing our job.”
