Conte slams Chelsea players: You don't win games on paper!

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte turned on his players after their 3-0 defeat at Arsenal.

Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil put the Gunners out of sight before half-time at the Emirates Stadium as the hosts condemned Chelsea to their second consecutive Premier League defeat.

"If someone thinks this season is easy, we must work a lot to improve and change the situation because now we are a great a team on the paper, not on the pitch," Conte said.

"I prefer to be a great team, not on paper, but also on the pitch because the pitch speaks the truth, the pitch is the most important thing for us. Not the words, not the paper. We must change this.

"Last season was a bad season and last season we were a great team on the paper. This team we want to be a great team also on the pitch.

"There are many difficulties but if we understand this we are in a good position to recover and to change the situation."
