Antonio Conte has hailed Chelsea’s victory over Atletico Madrid as “very important” as they look to reassert themselves on the UEFA Champions League stage.

The Blues came from behind to clinch a 2-1 victory in Madrid on Wednesday as Alvaro Morata cancelled out Antoine Griezmann’s penalty before Michy Batshuayi struck the winner with virtually the last kick of the game.

And, speaking after the game, Conte said: "You can win, but if you win only to defend, to go and counter attack there isn't the right satisfaction.

"Instead to come here and to show we are ready to play... it's very important.

"We must play always with the same personality, the same desire to play football and to try through the play to deserve to win.

"The answer tonight was very positive."
