Chelsea manager Antonio Conte declared himself happy with the response at Vicarage Road after the Blues came from behind to keep their 100 per cent record intact.

Michy Batshuayi and Diego Costa both scored within the final ten minutes against Watford to record a 2-1 victory, and Conte believes the quick turnaround will stand them in good stead for future games.

“I feel good because I saw the right commitment, the right spirit from my team,” Conte told BBC Sport.

“This game wasn’t easy this game because we were 1-0 down. I’m pleased to see the reaction from my players and this win is very important for us as it gives everyone confidence.

“It is wrong to come to Watford and to think it’s very simple to win. In the first half I saw a good balance between the teams. I think we showed a great intensity in the second half and we pushed them a lot.

“I like to thank the fans because they pushed us on during the worst period. We must understand that we have to fight together and today is another game that we won at the end so it’s very important.”
