  • Antonio Conte insists Chelsea can improve again next season - SkySports

But the Brazil global has proved to be an extremely shrewd acquisition by Antonio Conte, slotting neatly into the centre of Chelsea's back three and spreading reassurance with his aggressiveness in the duel and calmness on the ball.

At the end of September, Arsenal made light work of their London rivals, but a change in formation after that fixture sparked a 13-match winning run for Chelsea.

When Chelsea announced last April that Italian Antonio Conte would become their manager, they knew they had signed someone with a proven track record of success. What we've got to do now is try to get something out of these next two away games. It's not nice after a season when you won the league. It will be a thrilling game, we'll need the right game to take the first trophy of the season home.

The Italian tactician recently won the EPL title for Chelsea after his side defeated West Brom 1-0 at Hawthorns. They needed only one.

He said: "We started to do our work".

The 36-year-old is set to leave the new Premier League champions at the end of the 2016-17 season.

Chelsea's surge back to the top of the Premier League has been spectacular after the most disappointing campaign of the Roman Abramovich era in 2015-16, and Courtois believes some of the criticism directed at the Blues underestimated the levels of quality and resilience in the squad.

'We are working only nine months together. The Spain worldwide reportedly was one of the players who fell out with Jose Mourinho last season, contributing to the negative atmosphere that engulfed the club as it finished, somewhat embarrassingly, in 10th place. They have beaten West Brom to win the premier league this season with two rounds remaining in the premier league.

But the Italian now has his eyes on completing the Double with victory over Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley on May 27. I think this result is for this attitude, this behaviour of my players.

"(Now) I see a very, very stable team and a team enjoying playing football".

If Conte was suddenly serious talking about that, he was much jokier when discussing one of the key moments of the night: the decision to introduce a player who barely featured in Michy Batshuayi, who then scored the key goal.

It may have been a scrappy goal, and, dare I say it, there may have been an element of luck involved.
