Conte's faith behind Chelsea move - Morata

A moment of brilliance from Kevin De Bruyne was enough for Manchester City to grab the win against Chelsea during Saturday's Premier League action, as the Sky Blues continued their unbeaten run with a 1-0 win.

He has also been involved in 28 goals in 43 Premier League appearances for City since August 2016, with seven goals and 21 assists.

"It was a day off, I prefer to talk about my players and not other players or clubs".

The Belgian struggled to make an impact at Chelsea and fell out of favour with then manager Jose Mourinho, who eventually offloaded him to Wolfsburg after a loan spell at Werder Bremen.

I like players who are used to thinking about the team, used to thinking about "us", not "me". Shakhtar snapped at their heels and created chances by playing through them.

This didn't work though and City continued to dominate in the second half, however chances were few and far between. In this type of game it's very important to score first. Something that Pep Guardiola is all for. "It's very important for us before the global break to take the three points", said Morata.

"I do not know what is going to happen in the future".

Asked whether he would like to take charge of a national team, Guardiola told BBC's Football Focus: "Yes, Spain I think".

Conte chose to bring on midfielder Willian instead of Michy Batshuayi, presumably to try and win more possession.

"It was a simple tactical decision", the Italian said.

"I think we have to look at ourselves", he said.

"Once again he showed us how good he is - he won the game", Guardiola said. Everything. We did this today.

Mendy enjoyed a flying start to his Premier League career, starting and completing four of the first five games of the season before an injury at home to Crystal Palace forced him off.

Pep Guardiola may just have been gifted a boost before his side's clash against Chelsea, as Alvaro Morata could miss the mega fixture due to injury.
