After last night’s defeat, Conte admitted City have improved significantly after spending £200 million.
He said: “Last season Manchester City were a very good team, very strong. I think after this transfer market they improved a lot. They strengthened.”
Conte admitted his side are where they deserve to be, having slipped behind Tottenham into fourth place, with four points from a possible 12 at home.
“I think our start wasn’t so easy. I think we have the points that we deserve.”
