Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has no doubts Manchester City have improved thanks to their summer mega spending.

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 you have to consider that in seven games we played with Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham and also Everton.

“I think our start wasn’t so easy. I think we have the points that we deserve.”
