Chelsea bounces back on the field with a win over arrival Tottenham Hotspurs at Wembley. The Chelsea Manager Antonio Conte praised his players as there was no internal conflict. Gary Neville praised the Newly build Conte squad who was behind the success.

"I don't think it's unfair for us, the media, to be asking questions around Chelsea after losing the first game in such fashion, the Costa situation rumbling on and the Matic situation." Said Neville.

"We are aware of what happened last time after Chelsea won the title. Mancini, Ranieri and Mourinho have all been sacked pretty quickly after winning the title."

"You thought today before the game, this was more than three points for Chelsea because you could see if they were beaten here today and beaten well it could start to unravel a little bit."

"They stood up today. They stood up like champions. They pulled together a makeshift team, this is certainly not their first XI, and they've shown something today."

"They've shown they are actually with the manager. If you think about the accusations last time Chelsea won the league it's that they weren't with Mourinho."

"Today they played, even when they went to 1-1, brilliantly. They put in a good performance against a really good Tottenham team," he added.

The win comes to a loss to Burnley at Stamford Bridge where the players were frustrated with the way the Chelsea manager arranged the match. Marcos Alonso and David Luiz hailed Chelsea's character to the last whistle where they came out the victory.

The match was played without the well-known stars. Several stars through injury and suspension missed the Wembley head-on including Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas, and Gary Cahill. They are expected to be fit and back to the field next month.
