“For Thibaut it’s more difficult because for the whole game you wait and you could lose concentration but he is a fantastic goalkeeper,” Conte said.
“One of the best in the world, if not the best, and I’m pleased to have him in my team.”
Next up for Chelsea is a trip to Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.
