It was a good week in the Champions League for English clubs with all, bar Liverpool, winning. Conte thinks results in the competition’s early stages have highlighted the quality of the Premier League.
“In the Champions League I think every English team is showing it’s very difficult to play against Man City, Man United, ourselves, Liverpool and Tottenham,’ said the Italian. ‘It shows me the level of our league is very high.
“This league is very difficult and we have to see in the future, when a lot of fixtures are starting to come, how we respond in the Champions League. In the past it was very difficult when you arrive in the quarter-finals or semi-finals and now every team is showing they are very strong.”
