Conte has been a sullen figure in recent press conferences, given his side's run of results. But he was full of praise for his players today.
He singled out defender Andreas Christensen for praise after he returned from injury in the game.
"We are talking about a player who is only 21, he is showing great maturity, calmness and great personality," he said.
"He's been performing well from the start of the season. Defensively he's very good, he needs to improve with the ball, to find solutions with the ball, he has the right potential to do this but we are talking about a player who is only 21. For me, he has a brilliant future."
