Antonio Conte praises Chelsea team 'spirit' in fightback against Atleti

Antonio Conte praises Chelsea team 'spirit' in fightback against Atleti”

It will be 1-1 and probably the shots of this match would be the shots they have of Antonio Conte, Diego Simeone on the sidelines fully dressed in black.

Chelsea kick-started the 2017/18 champions league campaign with the whit washing of Qarabag, while Atletico were held by Roma in their first group game.

Alvaro Morata, however, equalised on the hour before Michy Batshuayi scored a dramatic late victor to send the travelling fans wild. The roar was for pictures of their charismatic manager...

"I think last season Eden played a really important season, played very well and was very important for us in winning the Premier League", said Conte.

Following the game, Hazard said that he was delighted with the win in the capital city of Spain. To have only one day to prepare for this type of game is not right.

"And for me it's important to make him understand that he is on the right path".

Since he took charge of Atletico, Diego Simeone has challenged the Real Madrid and Barcelona's dominance of La Liga.

Chelsea beat City three times last season with league victories at the Etihad Stadium and Stamford Bridge as well as a 5-1 win in the FA Cup fifth round.

"He has been with Juventus, Real Madrid, big teams, but didn't play regularly, and I want to find out why".

In his postmatch news conference, Conte added: "Now for us it is important to rest and recover very well".

Former Manchester City and Liverpool attacker Craig Bellamy added: "Costa is a brilliant player, Chelsea fans love him, he is always a threat, always involved, but clearly something happened". "When you go 1-0 down it's very hard to come back but we continued to play very well in the second-half and concentrated well". "We have a lot more games to play and we have to try to win them all".

"There are similarities in terms of working but they are not like us, because he played and worked in the exact same way in his previous teams, at Siena and at Juventus".

Atletico were second best and had struggled for rhythm until they were presented with a spot-kick by David Luiz, who pulled Lucas Hernandez's shirt in the box from a corner.
