Conte says there are no injury problems ahead of Saturday’s game with Leicester, and everybody is available.
Conte on Eden Hazard: ‘He is improving a lot and I think now I can count on him. I have to decide the right minutes but he is available. I spoke with Roberto Martinez and tried the right way to improve Eden’s fitness. I was very happy for him to play.’
Conte on Danny Drinkwater: ‘We are working with him and trying to make him in the best condition. He’s working very well and in the squad.’
Conte on Davide Zappacosta: ‘He is in good physical condition. He knows very well which is my style and my idea. It’s more simple to adapt.’ Conte says Zappacosta can still improve but has good quality and makes good runs. He says it’s important he has the right mentality here.
Conte on the transfer window: ‘The club tried to do its best. Sometimes you are able to buy, sometimes you are not for many reasons.’ Conte also says he agrees with the Premier League decision to close the transfer window earlier next season.
Conte on Leicester: ‘It will be difficult. I watched their previous games & saw a very strong team with great concentration & very focused.’ Conte says we must pay great attention to Vardy and Mahrez, and also mentions Harry Maguire, Wes Morgan and Christian Fuchs.
