Conte appears to be a really good young manager on paper. He's had success with Juve and done a decent job with the national side. But Italy and international football is so different. He'll need to learn about how football is played over here and adapt accordingly. I'm not saying he can't do it... I'm just not sure how he'll get on.
Yep completely agree... They've got a good balance throughout the team. They defend well and are organized, they have Kante to provide that cover any they have creativity and goals in attack. This is a team who will contend I'm pretty sure of that.
I think that's a pretty good start given that it's a new league with a team that were so bad last year? Add to that their the clown they have resigned in defense and it's even more impressive!
Those two defeats were to Liverpool who I think finish second and Arsenal who will be top 4 as always and he's got to be quietly pleased? I think they will be well placed to finish top 4 because they will improve as the season progresses and they settle under Conte.
At this point the only thing I can see stopping this juggernaut is if they do sell Costa. I know they were without him tonight but this was never going to be a game where they'd struggle without him. Further tests lie ahead if they can't get Costa focused.
