I cannot Sleep – Antonio Conte

Chelsea suffered an embarrassing 3 – 0 defeat away to Arsenal On Saturday. Goals from Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott made sure Chelsea’s winless run stretched to three matches.

Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte has admitted that he has not slept after his team’s loss to Arsene Wnger’s side.

“I don’t sleep, sure. I don’t sleep. After this game, this defeat, it’s normal for me not to sleep. Not only one night, but for two nights. When I don’t sleep, I reflect. And it’s important to reflect.

“When you have a bad performance – we have a bad performance together, me first, my staff second, and then the players.”

However, Conte refused to lay blame on any individuals and insists his side must improve collectively if they are to challenge at the top.

“It is important to take this experience as an opportunity to understand we want to come back very quickly. To fight for something important in England, it is important to improve,” Conte added.

“It is important to show during the game how to be a great team, not only on paper.

“I don’t want to talk about defenders, midfielders or strikers. Because I think we lose and we win as a team.

“We must continue to think in the same way, always. We understood – me first then the players – that this league is very tough.

“We must improve a lot of if we want to stay up and not in the middle of the table.”

Arsenal’s victory over Chelsea coincided with Wenger’s 20 years as an arsenal Manager. The last time Arsenal beat Chelsea was somewhere in 2011.
