Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has identified two key areas in which his side can improve, despite masterminding a run of five straight victories.

The Blues have scored 16 goals without reply since Mesut Ozil put Arsenal three goals to the good shortly before half time in a game which is looking as though it will represent the turning point in the west London club’s season.

Still, despite the significant improvements that have been in evidence over the last month, Conte believes his side is far from the finished article and must improve their pressing game, as well as retaining their shape when they lose possession.

‘The first time I changed to this system was against Arsenal for the last 25 minutes, and then we continued with this idea of football,’ he told Chelsea’s official website.

‘For sure in this month we have developed, we have worked a lot on this system, and for sure I have to say thanks to my players because they had the right concentration, the right attitude, the right will to stay more than before in the training sessions and now it is easier than one month ago.

‘But we know we can improve a lot on different aspects – the pressure on the ball, quickly being more compact – for sure we have to improve.’
