​Conte: Patience needed to change Chelsea into my team

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte says it will take time for him to get his side playing how he wants.

"It is normal when you start work in a new team and you bring a new idea and method of football you need time," said the 47-year-old Italian.

"But I'm confident about this and trust in the work. We can improve a lot."

The Blues, who let in 53 league goals last season, have kept just one clean sheet in seven games this campaign.

"When we concede a goal, all the team concede a goal, not only the defenders," said Conte.

"It means we must work together to improve the defensive situation. This problem was already there last season.

"We must work a lot on this aspect because if you want a great championship you mustn't concede so many goals."
