Jose Mourinho has delivered his verdict on Antonio Conte’s Chelsea.
The Italian replaced the Manchester United boss at Stamford Bridge over the summer and he’s taken to it like a duck to water.
Conte’s men are clear at the top of the table and have won their last 11 league games.
And Mourinho has discussed the Blues’ defensive solidarity and how they keep grinding out results.
He told Sky Sports: “You have to be honest and say that is very difficult.
“It’s not just the difference in points, it’s also the Chelsea philosophy of playing.
“They score one goal and they win. They defend a lot.
“They defend well. They are winning and, in the last 20 minutes, they bring defenders in.
“They don’t care what people say, what people think. They just want to win.
“And, because of that, I don’t see them losing many points.”
