Chelsea beat West Brom 4-0 away from home looking almost perfect, especially in the first half, but a good part of Antonio Conte’s Press conference after the match was spent not on their success at The Hawthorns, but on how the Premier League schedule is decided.
We played against Atletico Madrid away and we came back at five o’clock in the morning on Thursday and we played on Saturday against Manchester City. I think in the game one team was favourite and it was a pity because then you can see that you can stay very close – if you win, the distance is not nine points
the Blues boss first said, going back to what happened after his team’s Champions League game in Madrid.
For this reason, I think sometimes whoever prepares this type of fixtures must pay more attention and to give all the teams the same possibility. Don’t forget now we have another problem because we are going to play at Qarabag on Wednesday and then we go back to London at five, six o’clock, but we have another great game against Liverpool on Saturday. Is it normal, this? I don’t think
Conte wondered and answered himself.
