Piers Morgan: Why Chelsea’s Antonio Conte reminds me of Liverpool manager
The outspoken Arsenal supporter likens the Chelsea manager to popular Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp
Piers Morgan praised Antonio Conte after Chelsea were 4-0 winners against Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.
The Italian masterminded the west London side’s emphatic win against their former manager Jose Mourinho and his United players at Stamford Bridge.
First-half goals from Spanish midfielder Pedro Rodriguez and England centre-half Gary Cahill put Chelsea in charge of the Premier League clash.
2015 PFA player of the year Eden Hazard scored his fourth Premier League goal of the season to extend the west London side’s lead.
Summer signing N’Golo Kante waltzed past Paul Pogba, Ander Herrera and Chris Smalling to seal three points in emphatic fashion for the hosts.
Morgan lavished praise on the Chelsea manager as the outspoken Arsenal supporter likened Conte to popular Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.
I like Antonio Conte.
Like Klopp, he rages with fire, passion & brimstone. #CFCvMUFC

Chelsea hoisted themselves above Tottenham Hotspur and into fourth place courtesy of their landslide victory over United.
However, the Blues, who lost 2-1 to Klopp’s side at Stamford Bridge in September, are a point adrift of Liverpool.
