Antonio Conte compares Alvaro Morata to Chelsea legend

City have won 16 of their first 17 Premier League games this season

Willian almost made it a bright start for Chelsea after just a quarter hour when he played a one-two with Alonso, but the Brazilian slipped his shot wide of the far post as he cut across goal.

Alonso provided the one moment of quality in a contest lacking a little in energy at Stamford Bridge, beating Fraser Forster from 30 yards on the stroke of half-time to secure Chelsea's eighth victory in their last 10 Premier League matches.

Conte feels his team deserve greater credit for a run of results that has seen them go joint-second with Manchester United, with City's 15 successive top-flight triumphs for an English record unjustly overshadowing them.

"In the last 10 games we won eight games, drew only one game against Liverpool away and lost only one game against West Ham", Conte added.

The hosts dominated but could not find a second against a Southampton team that defended resolutely, and needed a good save from goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to deny Saints substitute Charlie Austin.

"Because when you score more than one goal you can be more relaxed". "I think we must be happy for the performance to keep the clean sheet".

'We must be ready to overcome this type of problem, this difficulty'. My players in the last 10 games did a good job'.

Mauricio Pellegrino has been criticised of late for approaching games naively, but, he seemed to have his tactics spot on against Chelsea.

"It was very good that we showed from the start we wanted to win against Huddersfield and that's the mentality we need in every game".

Southampton, meanwhile, have gone five league games without a win and have fallen to 12th in the standings.

"My expectation is for us to suffer, I have this sensation, so we must pay great attention".

The opposition were content to sit back, play for time and when they did venture forwards on a counter-attack, they made sure they were back behind the ball as quick as possible. While the mercurial Belgium global didn't score in the following game against Huddersfield, playing as a false nine he was at the hub of the Blues' forward play and the best player on the pitch.
