Antonio Conte: This is how we will cope without Cesc Fabregas and Gary Cahill


Chelsea boss Antonio Conte says it will not be easy to face Tottenham Hotspur away from home without key players.

The Blues desperately need to bounce back after a shock home defeat against Burnley on Saturday.

The Italian says he will review the defeat with his players in order to prepare the White Hart Lane game in the best possible way.

"Honestly, now there is a great disappointment that we don't have these players for the next game, but we have one week to try to find the right solution," he told reporters.

"It will be a really tough game but we must be ready, and show the same will and desire to fight that we did in the second half. We need to show that from the start.

"I'll show the players the game, the positive and negative situations and we will work again to try to improve to avoid the mistakes we made against Burnley and prepare in the right way for the Tottenham game.

"I'm not worried because it is normal during the game to have different situations – positive and negative. It is important for me that we don't close our eyes, but to focus on our mistakes and try to work and improve.

"We have to put all of ourselves into the job.

"If you do this every day, you must be happy. Sometimes the results can be good, sometimes bad, but the most important thing is that I am seeing from my players the right commitment, the right will, the right desire to work and try to improve.

"It is the same from my staff and from me – I repeat, we have to give all of ourselves and get 120 per cent from every single person."
