Conte claims Burnley played a defensive game to stop his Chelsea

Antonio Conte was disappointed after getting only one point at Burnley, claiming the Dyche side played a too far defensive football to stop his team:

“The pitch is small and this is better for the team that has to defend and play this long ball,” the Italian manager claimed.

“We put a lot of energy on the pitch today and we took only one point. We found a team that thought to disrupt our football, to play this long ball and to fight the second ball.

“We must be disappointed to take only one point. I have great respect for every type of football. I don’t like to judge the other. I have great respect for any team, for any manager, absolutely.”
