Conte says he trusts Morata and Giroud

Otherwise I can take another decision and play with a striker. "If I'd started with Zaha and he'd broken down - after only one and a half training sessions - the question would have been very different". And in the end, their two goals were just enough to snatch all three points as Palace scored late to make it a 2-1 affair.

"In every game I have to decide the starting XI and not the players, because the players are the players and the manager is the manager".

"When I came back to Turin, it was a meeting with Lippi and all the players - all the players - and he killed me". This is not my habit. But he insisted the tactics were the same as against Barcelona, when Chelsea drew 1-1. He's working very hard and he's helping the team.

"We don't have this experience and you have to build this experience in the next years".

"I didn't see a lot of shots on goal from Manchester City, and this is very unusual".

"Against City, there is the possibility to lose the game".

"We must be prepared to suffer in this type of game", he said. We missed a lot of last passes.

"[Against Crystal Palace] for sure we have this option to play with Giroud or Morata as No. 9".

Conte says his situation contrasted with the present one involving Hazard, whom the Italian has previously told to be more selfish and ruthless in front of goal.

"But the tactics were the same against Barcelona and, against Barcelona, I didn't listen to anyone complaining".

'For sure, we have to improve. I did this once.

"On Friday, if you remember, it was very cold".

"We have many players who need experience - Andreas Christensen, Tiemoue Bakayoko, we have a lot of players playing for the first time or the second time in the Champions League".

It was the visitor's first away win in seven games and the result brought about a slump in form for the Blues. During the break I did an interview.

'I'm trying to jump but it's not easy to win the duels against Nicolas Otamendi and Aymeric Laporte. My stupid answer was, 'We are winning, but I'm not happy because I'm not enjoying the role the coach chose to give me'.

'After training, the club called me.

"I think we played a really great game, nearly the flawless game if we didn't concede the goal at the last". You can check. That's in the past.
