Antonio Conte: Chelsea will stay motivated despite vanishing title hopes

"He'll be waiting to replace Antonio Conte at Chelsea", McGarry said on the Transfer Window podcast.

Conte's Chelsea dropped points once more this weekend as the Blues played out a nil-nil draw against Everton. "I think we are doing a really good job with my players". "It is not important to say this with the press, I must say this to the club in the right moment in the right place". They are showing me great commitment, great behaviours, and I'm very happy to work with these players.

'At the same time, if there is the possibility to improve our squad, I think the club will try to do this'. Some rumours are true. We must be ready to face this situation.

"But there will be a lot of rumours now".

"It's not easy when a team falls back, I think we could've had more shots on target but we didn't have a big guy up front despite lots of crosses into the box", Courtois told Sky Sports post-match, during their coverage of Saturday's early kick-off.

"From November, you play every three days until the end of January". It is not the right time now to talk about who we will sign.

"Ampadu is part of the squad not from the start of the season, but after a month and a half he started to stay with us", the manager said.

"We have to try to work to put all of ourselves into every game with the squad we have". Arguably the best centre-back in the world, the Italian has reportedly got disenchanted with AC Milan and is ready to make a move to the Premier League. "Not only the club, not only with me... we will do it [take joint responsibility for transfers] together".

The 51-year-old, who represented the Blues for over 11 years and is Chelsea's second-most successful skipper after John Terry, told Sky Sports: "Costa is a disgusting centre-forward who nicks goals". I brought this type of management with me to use with my players. "He's shown great maturity and great personality, great calmness and composure before and during the game and, for sure, after the game".
