Watch: Antonio Conte pre Southampton press conference

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte spoke of how he expects a tough game against Southampton tomorrow at Stamford Bridge, as he rates them as a team with good players who will be eager to make amends for their 4-1 home defeat to Leicester in their last game.

The Italian coach was quizzed about reports this week that star striker Alvaro Morata is watching videos of club legend Didier Drogba, and the former Juventus coach stated that he believes the Spanish striker will have an amazing future, but still has a long way to go to match the achievements of a player like Drogba.

Conte also admitted that he is not surprised by the form of Man City, as they already had a strong team last season, and after being decisive in the transfer market and securing their first-choice targets, they are now on their way to not only becoming the top team in the Premier League, but also in Europe.

The 48-year-old gave an update on David Luiz, stating that the defender is working closely with the clubs doctors to overcome a knee injury.
