Antonio Conte has thanked Chelsea fans for their support in recent months as the Blues prepare for their trip to Arsenal on Wednesday night.

The Italian coach is proving to be an extremely popular figure at Stamford Bridge after having taken over at the club as Jose Mourinho’s permanent successor in the summer of 2016.

Conte was something of an instant hit at Chelsea, with the Italian having led the Blues to the Premier League title in his first campaign at the club.

The west London side look like they will struggle to defend their Premier League title this season but they are still in the Champions League, League Cup and they will begin their FA Cup campaign this weekend.

Conte is well-liked by Chelsea supporters and the former Juventus boss has thanked them for their support in recent months.

Speaking to Chelsea’s website, Conte said: “I don’t want to promise we will win this or that, but my target is to put everything in to every situation, every game and every competition.

“My message to the Chelsea fans is this: we want to give the best satisfaction to you. And I want to thank our fans. Away and at home, they push us a lot.

“I want to say thanks for when they sing my name, too! To hear this is a great emotion for me.

“My promise to them is that we will give everything in every second of our life for this club.”

Conte is now preparing his Chelsea side for their crunch Premier League clash against Arsenal at The Emirates on Wednesday night.

The Blues, who won the title in style last term ahead of Tottenham Hotspur, will be looking for revenge after Arsenal beat Chelsea in both the FA Cup final and Community Shield last year.
