Conte hits back at ‘negative’ media after win over Brighton
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte insisted his players had never doubted their own form after a 4-0 victory at Brighton ended a run of five straight stalemates.
When asked if the performance had sent a message to those suggesting Chelsea were ‘in crisis’, Conte hit back: “Whoever said this has to pay great attention to the stats.
“We are unbeaten in 13 games. A lot of times, the press try to see the negative aspect and don’t see the positive aspect.
“This team, with many problems, is unbeaten in 13 games in every competition. This means we are doing important work with the players to win.
“Today, despite [having] six important players less, we won 4-0."
