'I saw the fighters' – Conte praises Chelsea players after Wembley win over Spurs

Marcos Alonso scores for Chelsea against Tottenham

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte praised the “commitment” of his team in a “moment that is not easy” as they bounced back from their opening-day loss to Burnley by beating Tottenham at Wembley.

Marcos Alonso scored a late winner for the Blues as Spurs started life at their temporary home with a disappointing defeat.

Chelsea’s new £60m striker Alvaro Morata missed an easy headed chance in the opening minutes before Alonso’s perfectly delivered free-kick gave Antonio Conte’s side the lead after 24 minutes.
