Steven Gerrard praises Antonio Conte

Liverpool Legend Steven Gerrard has hailed Blues boss Antonio Conte for his management style.

Chelsea kept their seven-point lead at the top of the Premier League by defeating Manchester City 2-1.

Eden Hazard scored the two winning goals for the Blues, but Gerrard was more impressed with Antonio Conte’s management.

Gerrard told BT Sport: “He spots things very quickly. When it was all going wrong at the start of the season, he switched from four to three at the back.

“Even against Manchester City when they were wide open and De Bruyne and David Silva were causing problems he took a defender off and put Nemanja Matic on.

“He stiffened it up and managed the game and Chelsea saw it out.

“That’s down to his tactical genius.

“He spots things quickly, acts quickly and that’s what got them over the line.”
