Antonio Conte says he has faith in Chelsea’s transfer plans and backs the club, after their Carabao Cup exit against Arsenal.
A Rudiger own goal and Xhaka strike sealed the win for Gunners, as Chelsea failed to build on Hazard’s seventh-minute opener.
Chelsea are looking to sign Peter Crouch, Andy Carroll, Ashley Barnes and Dzeko. And Conte is pleased with the blues dealings.
“When the squad is not big you have to always play with the same players,” he told a news conference.
“I made a lot of rotations this season. We reached the semi-final and if you see before who played in this competition, we played with young players. I have to do the same in the FA Cup, but then you risk going out. Against Norwich we risked this.
“But it is not right to take only one game to make a decision to understand. There is a programme and a plan.
“It’s wrong we have to make decisions only on one game. The situation has always been the same since the summer. I continue to work and I’m very happy with my players.
“I continue to give everything for the club and the club makes the best decisions for the team.”
