Welcome to Dafy's World

Following the great character to come from 2-1 behind to trash Watford 4-2 at the Bridge on Saturday, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has spoken about the special relationship he has with Chelsea supporters.

“Great satisfaction,” According to the manager  who explained his mindset at the point where the Hornets were in the ascendancy and threatening to extend their lead.

Conte, whose substitutions proved inspirational, with Michy Batshuayi netting twice, and both Willian and Davide Zappacosta also making an impact from the bench, said: “In this moment it is important for the coach to stay focused on the pitch, to understand the right way to help your team.” It’s not simple because whenever you see your team is suffering, it is not simple for the coach, but you must try to find a way.

‘I think my relationship with the fans is incredible,’ he added. ‘They always support me – from my first game against West Ham, they prepared a big Italian flag in the stands. I think the feeling with the fans is incredible and I feel pressure to repay this. They call my name, and me and my players want to give great satisfaction to our fans because they deserve this.

‘I trust in my work, I give all myself in my work and I feel the pressure to give satisfaction to my players, our fans and the club, because I ask a lot of myself.’

Having returned to winning ways in the league, attentions now turn to the visit of Everton in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.

As in the previous round, when the Blues produced an impressive display to beat Nottingham Forest 5-1, Conte says he will give some of the younger members of his squad a chance against the Toffees.

‘I think for the game against Everton it is a good opportunity to give a chance to young players like Charly Musonda and Kenedy,’ he said. ‘They are young but they deserve this chance because they are working very well, they are improving and to see the improvement during a tough game against Everton, I think is important for the club.’ –
