Christensen a future Chelsea captain, says Conte

Christensen a future Chelsea captain, says Conte

Willian scored the only goal for Chelsea in their 1-1 draw at home versus Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League this past Tuesday, but he could have easily had a hat trick, as two more shots hit the post. But this is not only for one player, but for all my players.

Some Chelsea fans have questioned why Willian has been consistently left out this season, but Conte has dismissed concerns about his team selections.

"Willian deserved to start in the previous game, and played well".

I think this player is a present player for Chelsea and can be here for 10, 12 years.

"I have to make the best decision for the team".

"Maybe last season we won the title, or did I forget something?"

"Willian is playing now, because he deserves to play".

"If not, stay on the bench, stay in the stands". Unfortunately for him, he collided with a Deportivo player while scoring a sixth goal with a header during Real's 7-1 victory. Conte says he has no regrets over how he's handled Willian, and that he has to look out for the best interests of the team, not just individual (s).

US Embassy in Montenegro attacked with grenade, prompting security scare
Eyewitnesses saw the assailant throw an object over the wall of the embassy compound, according to Steve Goldstein, the U.S. Montenegro police say after he threw the grenade into the yard, he killed himself with another explosive device.

"It is totally different to play in the Premier League to the Champions League".

"If you are happy because you win only one game against a big team it means that your mentality is very little". I'm very happy to be the coach of these players. Under this aspect, I must be very pleased because I have a group of players who work very well.

'I did a fantastic choice, and I want to take credit for that'.

Ross Barkley wasn't selected in Chelsea's matchday squad to face Barcelona and despite joining first-team training sessions, Conte feels that the midfielder along with Luiz and Bakayoko will miss the trip to Manchester United.

"Now Matic, unfortunately, is playing for Manchester United. Not on Sunday, but in the future". Conte thinks that Chelsea need to keep all their players fit, with such a tough run coming up.

"It's a pity, because tonight at the end of the game we are disappointed [for] the final result".

"I think that we have just started to play massive games, with Barcelona, now United and City, then Crystal Palace and then another important game. also Palace is an important game for us, but then there is Barcelona". When you are a player, you can make a lot of mistakes in your career.
