Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has hit out at the Premier League schedule.

Conte reckons Chelsea have been “penalised” by the Premier League fixture schedulers in Saturday’s clash with Manchester City.

Chelsea claimed a last-gasp 2-1 win at Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night to top Champions League Group C with two wins from two games.

“In this case I think we are a bit penalised,” Conte said.

“To have only one day to prepare for this type of game is not right.

“Honestly I’m very surprised to see that this big game we have to play on Saturday, not on Sunday. I don’t understand why.”
