Our Winning Mentality Is Back, Antonio Conte Says After Leicester Win

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte thinks his players have put their opening weekend defeat to Burnley firmly behind them after a third straight win at Leicester.Goals from N'Golo Kante and Alvara Morata sent the Premier League champions to victory. Jamie Vardy netted from the penalty spot but it was not enough to stop the in-form Blues.
After a turbulent transfer window, where Conte missed out on a couple of his top targets, and a surprising opening weekend defeat to Burnley, the club have since put together a string of fine results, including a 2-1 win away at Tottenham. The Chelsea boss admits he's been impressed with how his team have reacted in the last three games.
He said “Despite our bad start against Burnley, a bit of difficulty, I think to win three in a row is important for the players, we are doing very well. I have great players, my players are reliable and I trust them. I think the mentality today was very strong, very positive, very good, until the penalty. I think we were in total control of the game, scored the first goal, the second goal. We conceded to a counter-attack when we lost the ball for the penalty, and after they tried to put some pressure on, but we created many chances to improve the scoreline.”
