Moses Chelsea

Antonio Conte is one of the most successful football managers in the world. He won three consecutive Serie A titles at Juventus before coming to England and win the Premier League crown in his very first season at Chelsea.

Now the Italian manager has taken up a new challenge at Inter Milan. His arrival, along with Sarri’s likely return to Italy and Gian Piero Gasperini’s presence at Atalanta, will make the Serie A a hugely interesting league for the football fans. With the betlion coupon code, they can all be well set for the Serie A matches next season.

1- Manchester City 1 Chelsea 3 (2016)

This was one of the most outstanding performances of Chelsea under Conte. Manchester City dominated possession but failed to make their possession count while Chelsea was clinical to convert the few chances that came their way.

Manchester City was the happier side at the end of the first half as Gary Cahill’s own goal gave them the lead. They could have doubled their lead after the break if Kevin De Bruyne hadn’t missed a brilliant opportunity to score. They knew the cost of that miss as Chelsea equalized soon to cancel out their advantage.

Chelsea’s substitute Willian extended the scoreline in the 70th minute of the game by firing low into the corner. Then Eden Hazard struck in injury time to turn this match into an emphatic victory for Chelsea. To further sour the mood of Pep Guardiola, both Sergio Aguero (for a reckless tackle on Luiz) and Fernandinho (for grabbing Fabregas) received red cards in the ending stages of the game.

2- Tottenham 1 Chelsea 2 (2017)

Chelsea suffered a huge setback against Burnley in the opening match of their 2017-18 Premier League season. The Tottenham test at Wembley was difficult for Antonio Conte as both Cahill and Fabregas were suspended.

Chelsea vs Tottenham

Chelsea started the game very well and had almost scored if Alvaro Morata hadn’t missed an easy header. However, they soon got their lead when Alonso delivered a spectacular free-kick in the 24th minute of the game.

Tottenham failed to respond with a goal, but it looked like that they had almost taken a point out of this match when Michy Batshuayi scored an own goal with just 8 minutes left on the clock. Marcus Alonso again came to the rescue of Chelsea and secured their 3 points by firing home in the 88th minute of the game.

3- Chelsea 4 Manchester United 0 (2016)

This was one of the most dominating performances of Chelsea against Manchester United. It was also the first time Mourinho was returning to Stamford Bridge after he was dismissed in 2015. Mourinho and United had to endure a tough day as the Blues struck four goals to complete their humiliation.

Chelsea started dominating the match from the very beginning and at no point looked to be faltering. It took them just 30 seconds to score their first goal with Pedro getting the lead followed by Cahill’s superb goal. Manchester United had always been famous for comebacks but they showed little effort to make a comeback that day. In the second half, Hazard struck from 15 yards followed by one from Kante to condemn their rivals to a humiliating defeat.
