Antonio Conte hits back at Jose Mourinho over injury jibe

But Matic, who also played under Mourinho at Chelsea, has revealed why he thinks the Portuguese manager is hard to work with.

Antonio Conte took responsibility for Chelsea's subpar result on Wednesday night, crediting the commitment and effort of his players, while admitting that he made a mistake in setting out his team in a more reactive 3-5-2 rather than a more proactive 3-4-3 formation.

The change seemed to work as Hazard headed the equaliser before Chelsea held out the for the final 15 minutes, although Dzeko went close to completing his hat-trick when he headed narrowly wide in the dying minutes.

And, when informed of Mourinho's comments, Conte was less than impressed, warning his counterpart to concentrate on his own affairs before lashing out at others.

Roma dominated large spells of the game with possession that kept Chelsea at bay, though Chelsea preyed on Roma's mistakes, which in turn led to a 2-0 lead.

Key West Ham man hasn't developed in six year, controversial pundit says
Meanwhile, Brighton boss Chris Hughton believes under-fire West Ham manager Slaven Bilic deserves more time to turn things around. The forward Sam Baldock (calf) and Biram Kayal (calf bone) are also sidelined, and there is no exact timetable for their return.

"We were basically improvising and it showed, as we suffered under Roma's pressing".

He told Mediaset Premium (via Football Italia): "We scored two goals, but the sensation was always that we didn't feel in control of the match".

"At the end I think the result was fair".

Nicholas believes Mourinho's war of words with Conte has been manufactured by the 54-year-old to create a distraction from the criticism.

Chelsea are already without N'Golo Kante, Victor Moses (both hamstring) and Danny Drinkwater (calf).

Tigers to hire Ron Gardenhire as manager
Arguably the most important decision that Detroit Tigers general manager Al Avila faced this offseason was hiring a new manager. The Detroit Tigers have agreed to hire Ron Gardenhire to fill their vacant manager position, a source tells FanRag Sports.

Some Chelsea players are even suggesting that Conte is the cause of some of their injury problems.

Needless to say, Mourinho simply can not see him join Paul Pogba on the injury table.

"A lot of time, also last season. We've got three injuries, not seven or eight, but it's still an emergency situation for us". "After the first half the doctor said David had a pain in his calf and the same for Bakayoko with his groin".

"Despite all that, we drew with a very good Roma side and I can only praise my players".

"You think we have any reason not to be happy?" he continued.
