Antonio Conte hopeful over Alvaro Morata injury


"I came to Chelsea because one club and one coach believed in me". Mendy of City is taking medicine by medical teams of Man City in Barcelona and he will return to his team in the month of April 2018.

The 26-year-old was infamously sold by Jose Mourinho back in 2014 after the Portuguese deemed him not good enough for the first team.

And, Chelsea could have few complaints, since Manchester City looked threatening up until scoring the winner. "He is the most humble guy, I am so happy for him because I know how happy he is".

The stunning effort combined power and accuracy and was the perfect way for the Belgian to open his account in the Premier League, having scored his first goal in the season in the Champions League midweek win over Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday. "When you play this type of game - a massive game - anything can happen".

Pep Guardiola aimed a subtle swipe at Manchester City's title rivals Tottenham by insinuating that the north London club were solely reliant on Harry Kane. "He is the complete player".

The hosts have not been as prolific as City, but the likes of Alvaro Morata and Michy Batshuayi have been steadily increasing their goal tallies in the last five outings.

"We've prepared for the game in only one day. It's what people want to do with their lives", Guardiola said at his post-match press conference.

City appear to be seeking to attack the champions with a midfield of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva and Fernandinho.

The Citizens squandered a good chance to take the lead 10 minutes into the second half when Raheem Sterling volleyed over from close range.

Guardiola's side remain top of the table, level on points with United as the early frontrunners. "The doctor now in the next days has to check the situation, but I don't think he's available for the (Spanish) national team".

And, as is pointed out on the video below from Sunday Supplement, Conte was complaining about the September schedule ever since the fixtures were released in the summer.
