Chelsea manager praises Blues fighting spirit
Antonio Conte delighted with his team’s response after comfortable 3-0 win against West Brom
February 13th, 2018
Chelsea were roundly criticised after consecutive Premier League defeats against Bournemouth and Watford, although there seemed little danger that they would lose a third match after Eden Hazard broke the deadlock against West Brom.
Hazard would score a second for the Blues along with a goal from Victor Moses to ensure a 3-0 win, with Antonio Conte feeling as though his team displayed plenty of fighting spirit as they bid to land a place in the top four this season.
“We are getting used to the speculation,” he said. “My players know very well what we have to do. Until the end we continue to live with this speculation so, for sure, we are going to try to fight against it.
“There is only one way: to win and play good football. The fans have showed me great support because I think they are reading the rumours about me, so I must thank them for that. It means that, in our 18 months together, they understand my passion and my will to defend these colours, this shirt, this badge.
“To know that people appreciate my work here in Chelsea is important. The players and I are trying to do our best to give them the best satisfaction. Our will is always there.”
