​Chelsea boss Conte lauds Man City start to campaign

Antonio Conte has said Chelsea deserve to be 11 points behind the Premier League pace setters Manchester City as their unbeaten run is "extraordinary."

"We started the season with a lot of problems," said Conte. "We have the points we deserve. I have spoken before about our problems at the start of the season because we started with a lot of injuries with Pedro, N'Golo [Kante] and [Victor] Moses.

"Manchester City are doing something extraordinary. But the most important thing is to look at ourselves and try to improve from the start of the season. We are becoming more solid and we have to continue this way."
