Antonio Conte defends his players after defensive mistakes, gives update on John Terry's injury


Chelsea manager Antonio Conte praised his players for the way they reacted after going 2-1 down against Swansea City.

Defensive mistakes saw the Blues concede two goals in five minutes but the 47-year-old decided not to blame individual players after the game.

The Italian also confirmed that defender John Terry will be assessed on Monday morning after suffering an ankle injury in the last part of the game.

"The first goal, for sure, we must improve in some situations," Conte said.

"For the second goal I think everyone can see the double foul on Cahill. It was a great mistake of the referee's but I also want to say this could happen for one side or the other side, I don't want to complain about this. It's the reality and it's a pity.

"I want to say after this situation we had a fantastic reaction. The players showed they didn't want to lose and tried to win until the end. I'm pleased with this. I also want to say if we have the opportunity to kill the game, we must kill it. We must learn this.

"I don't know the extent of the injury [John Terry's injury].

"Tomorrow we will see the situation with his ankle. He is a warrior! And I'm not worried."
