Pep Guardiola will relish battle with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, says Jamie Carragher

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola could relish the chance to get one over Chelsea‘s Antonio Conte when their sides meet this weekend, according to Jamie Carragher.

Conte has so far out-shone Guardiola as the most exciting of the new managerial arrivals in the Premier League this summer, taking Chelsea to the top of the table after a stunning seven-game winning run.

Despite many tipping Guardiola to walk this league after his tremendous success with Barcelona and Bayern Munich, it is the Blues’ new boss who has taken England by storm, and former Liverpool defender Carragher thinks that could make this weekend’s clash that little more intriguing.

‘I think Pep Guardiola will be desperate to get one over on Chelsea and the system and set-up that they are using because he’s been the manager who, when he has come in, we’ve been talking about systems and doing different things,’ Carragher told Sky Sports.

‘But it’s now Antonio Conte who has done something, not that we didn’t expect it because he has done it before, but is different to what we’ve seen. I’m sure Guardiola will have something up his sleeve and will do something a little bit different.

‘I think it will be a fascinating game to look at tactically with what the two mangers try and do. It’s a real big test for both managers and teams of course, but certainly for this Chelsea system.’
