"This was a wonderful important victory against a team that was unbeaten in 17 rounds and they showed their strength again this evening," Conte told Sky Sport Italia.
"You don't put up a run like that if you don't have quality. Let's not forget we are in an emergency situation, so I have run out of words to praise these lads for playing every three days with no space for squad rotation.
"I am well aware the lads are pushing all the way and some need to rest, but at the moment we can't afford to do that. So far the campaign has been extraordinary, but as I always say records aren't worth much if you don't get something tangible at the end of it.
"These lads deserve a trophy, as often they even surprise me."
