And Conte was understandably delighted with his team’s display.
Conte told Sky Sports: “I am pleased with the performance, we started well, moved the ball quickly, created chances to score the goal.
“I see the commitment in training and the players deserve this.
“We are improving, we must continue to work, only through the work we can improve.”

But Conte says he didn’t see the incident.
He said: “I did not see the David Luiz situation.
“I think Luiz played a fantastic game then I don’t know if he deserved a red [after his tackle on Marouane Fellaini].”
Focus for Chelsea now turns to the midweek trip to West Ham in the EFL Cup.
Conte added: “It is very important after the Arsenal and Liverpool defeats, it was important to understand our mission.
“We must look to Wednesday against West Ham and prepare for that.”
