Chelsea boss claims two clubs have better squads than the Blues
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has claimed that there are two sides in the Premier League that have better squads than the Blues.
That’s of course despite them sitting in top spot in the Premier League, and well en-route to the title this season.
Conte said: “I think Manchester United is together, with [Manchester] City, the best squad in the league.
“They have a lot of great players with great talent, with great experience of winning.
“For sure, it will be tough for us and tough for them.”
Conte was of course talking about Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United side ahead of the FA Cup tie between the pair, with Chelsea set to host their former manager and his new club, with the winner taking a place in the FA Cup semi finals and getting a trip to Wembley.
Should Chelsea manage to win the tie, it will be their first trip to the iconic stadium this season, and for United, it would be a fitting way to follow up their EFL Cup win earlier in the year.
There are doubts over Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and the tie comes at a great time for Chelsea, with United tired from European travel, and also set to miss Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the forward serves the first of a three game ban.
