Antonio Conte has called upon his Chelsea side to make sure they get through their “sensitive” stage of the season.

Conte and co are currently on a run of seven games in just three weeks.

The Blues endured a tricky start to October but have picked up their form, beating Watford, Everton and Bournemouth recently.

They are in Italy this week to take on Roma in their Champions League Group C tie.

The clubs drew 3-3 at Stamford Bridge two weeks ago and Conte wants his Blues to secure a win on Tuesday night despite their heavy workload.

He said: “It was an exciting game, a 3-3 draw which is proof of both teams’ will and desire to go for it. It was a fair final score.

“It will be another very difficult game against a very good team. We have to give 100 per cent.

“It’s important to overcome this sensitive stage of the season. When you are playing seven games in 21 days you don’t solve problems overnight.

“That’s why you have to try to do your best in every single game, and try and find the best solution. It’s important for us to do our best always and not have any regrets.”

Chelsea will qualify for the Champions League last-16 if they win in Italy this Tuesday evening.

The Blues also face a huge Premier League clash against Manchester United at the weekend but Conte insists they are only focused on beating Roma.

He added: “There are two big games for us before the international break.

“I like to repeat the most important thing for us is to go game by game, and the most important game for us now is against Roma.

“I don’t know what the final result will be but we have to put everything to try to get a good result.

“It will be very important to have a good result, and then after this we have to try to prepare for a another tough game against United in the league.

“We have to take it game by game and we will try to do our best in every single competition.”
