Antonio Conte says that he has "great respect" for Pep Guardiola, ahead of this weekend's meeting between Chelsea and Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.

Guardiola suggested that Chelsea and Spurs like to play football pretty much everywhere on the pitch.

"I have a lot of confidence in them all". The improvements so far this season are clear for everyone to see, with players more adjusted to his system, but trophies must follow the attractive football on display. "I'm so satisfied because we won in the way we tried from the beginning".

The Manchester City boss, who made 47 appearances for La Roja, managed Barcelona in his homeland for four year.

"I am happy to be here but it depends on the success we will have. They were unbeatable and won the league well in advance", he told his post-match press conference.

Twitter reacts to gutsy, surprise onside kick by Texas Tech
Texas Tech is third in the Big 12 with 587 total yards per game, and Oklahoma State is fourth at 580 total yards per game. It's another strong game for Hill, who was once again the bellcow for the Cowboys' offense.

"I do not know what is going to happen in the future". The Blues dominated many games last season but wastefulness was costly and meant they fell short of challenging for the title.

After a chastening first season at City, Guardiola spent big on new signings before the new campaign. Already this season, City players have scored 21 goals and will hope to continue that at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

"In the past, last season, we did not have that". I asked you for shirts after the game and you never gave me.

The Spaniard believes his side's improved quality in the front third is what separates them from the team that finished third last season. That is our feeling right now.

"It will be so tough, but it's important in the process to show we can do that".
