Antonio Conte’s Chelsea are flying high in the league

And the Sky Sports pundit reckons that’s the reason why Antonio Conte has got his team flying at the top of the Premier League.

Neville said on Monday Night Football: “He’s had good training ground time because of the fixture list and programme meaning he’s not in Europe.

“What I would say is that when you think of the imprint of managers on teams – and you can see what Klopp is trying to do at Liverpool – I think Conte, when you think of Juventus and Italy, he always seemed to have them so well-drilled.

“That’s tough to do but the fact he’s not in Europe is such a blessing to make sure there’s repetition in the team.

“From a coach’s point of view he’s been blessed in some ways but he’s doing his job brilliantly.
